    It was on the front page of Yahoo. I thought it was fitting to our field. THEN.... it actually mentioned UPS in a hilarious fashion.

    "It was no more than a moment ago, in the sartorial long view, that a guy who came to work wearing short pants would have been shown the door — or anyway, given the address for human resources at U.P.S. All that appears to be changing."

    PassYouBy,
    Thats Officer Dangle, from Reno 911. I'm glad he doesn't work for us, I don't think Twin Hill makes those shorts the way he likes them.

    The center I worked in had a few guys that liked to wear their shorts tight like the good officer. One guy claimed the ladies liked his package!

    faded jeans just a member


    That's just wrong - on so many levels. The shades remind me of Da Bears Super Fans on the old SNL.

    I know exactly what Cove means. I have a picture of me in those shorts and those white socks and a 'fro. My kids laugh so hard seeing it. I can't imagine what they'd do if I dressed like that for a day!

    Cove, you gotta do it when her friends are over too!
