Right before I walked into my building this morning, I noticed a woman wearing very short skirt. She was a plus-sized, Ashley-Stewart woman who looked to be about 5'6" or 5'7", and she wasn't overweight, she was just thick. But her skirt was yellow and short, and she was desperately clutching the sides of the skirt for dear life, and I couldn't figure out whether she was pulling it down, keeping it from flying up or both. What I DID notice is that she was completely uncomfortable with that skirt, and I started to feel badly for her, and then I thought again.

This is not the first time I've seen a woman wear clothing that looks hopelessly uncomfortable, and I do not get it. I had clothes that I don't like, are kind of snug, or just looked better in the store than they did on my person. I don't force the issue, wear them anyway, and then walk around looking like my diaper needs changing and I'm diaper-less. I either give the clothes away, or they simply don't get worn. But (some) women seem to force the issue and wear shoes, tops and bottoms that they really don't like just to prove a point to either themselves, other women or maybe the store they bought it from.

Perhaps this girl is trying to impress someone at her job by wearing a skirt that would certainly reveal all of goodies if she even bent halfway over. Maybe only walking with that short skirt is problematic, and its the sitting down in a swivel chair part of the day that she's really looking forward to...Or maybe the discomfort is worth it, because she thinks she looks that sexy..I don't know what the hell it is, and I know its technically none of my business, but when has that stopped me from noticing or bitching about something in the past?
