Yes!!, another thread about UPS socks. The current regime I am under has decided to enforce the rule about wearing them when wearing shorts. So knowing where and when to pick my battles, I have been complying. However I quickly noticed how tight they were around the ankles or calves. (depending on which ones you wear) and how tired my feet were after my day of work. I tried stretching the hole manually but the socks are of good quality and my efforts availed me no results. I then decided to do something else. After washing them , instead of putting them in the dryer, I "put them on" a circular tube that just happened to be holding clorox wipes(no importance regarding what was in the tube). Anyway the tube is about 4 and 1/2 inches in diameter and I came back two days later when they were definitely dry and then put them on for another work day. Success! I stretched them out permanently and my feetsies are no longer tired from pinched circulation. I post this tale for those who suffer from the same situation and offer a possible solution.
