    What up with the company only offering the long shorts with the ten inch inseam? I tried to order some shorts this morning and thats all we are allowed. My local dry cleaners wants $13 to hem pants. I hate the "Manpris" or "ghetto shorts", I can't stand the hems hitting the top of my knees. These things look horrible, I don't see the reasoning behind this decision at all.:dissapointed:

    Because my Center Manager got too many queries about the "3 legged UPS man"

    Maybe Over9five needs the long shorts, but I unfortunately don't have that problem!

    I'm good with the longer shorts. The fit well on my 6'2" person.

    I heard it was because of too many concerns about ********** being seen with the short shorts!

    Double check the order form. The shorts with the 7 " inseam are still available in my hub.

    It doesn't matter what you order; they send you what they want to send you. I just ordered the 7" shorts and got the 10". Because I refuse to look like Lil Wayne Snoop, and my wife can do it, they will shortly become 7" shorts. At least the shirts I got were brand new and not previously worn. That's big around here- to receive badly worn uniforms for your order; worse than what you turn in.

    Yes. Our uniforms are no longer brown ; they are toxic green.

    Really?
    Used uniforms?
    I am not germ-phobic, but that sounds just wrong.
    What the hell am I thinking, we do not even wash our pkg cars anymore.

    Deep South actually. Average summer temperature of 90 degrees with high humidity (=>85%).

    Im not sure that would fly in my center unless she did a great altering job. They are very demanding with their uniform standards. They even say we have to have brown or black socks with long pants.

    If they are so demanding, I suppose no sups are wearing brown, then?
