    Icon5 so it's said "always wear clean underwear"

    But what kind of leeway exists for this rule?

    Case in point:
    On Tuesday evening, my good friend Nalin went for a jog. Now, he came home, showered, and threw on some pyjamas. He then realised he was missing some vital ingredients for the meal he had planned, which meant a quick trip to Coles. Obviously he wasn't about to go in his jimjams, so he got changed into some clean clothes, including a fresh pair of undies. Nalin ended up wearing these clothes not only for my supermarket jaunt, but also while cooking dinner right through until about 8:30. So let's say two hours.

    The next morning, he was getting ready to shower, opened his underwear drawer and was about to grab a fresh pair when he noticed the partially worn ones staring back at him from the carpet, their bright blue fabric radiant in the morning sunlight that filtered through the bedroom window. Now usually in this instance he'd dismiss them as unfit to wear under the "clean underwear" rule. But with the current water restrictions, we can't be so quick to label clothing "dirty". So he wore them, and tbh he claimed that they were pretty comfy.

    Did he do the right thing here? Or has he made a grave error in judgement?


    Imho, he hasn't.

    Thoughts???

    I think it's possible to be too close to someone. I'd advise your mate to stear clear of your undies drawer in future. Best to nip it in the bud!

    The biggest error came when the thread was started.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Clearly Nibbs here is talking of a personal experience and used a third person format since you guys would have kept ribbing him (no typo here) otherwise

    But in the flow of writing his 'slip' showed

    You did the right thing Nibbs.. But I guess it also relates to the perspiration levels down under. Was there any reason to believe the underpants in question where at all soiled?

    If there was soiling, the underpants can no longer be considered fresh..

    I've done the same with socks. I put on a pair of socks for a quick duck out somewhere and put them away as fresh ones..

    I re-use socks often, because I don't have enough white ones. Criminal by me, I know.
