Holes in the knees
Does everyone else's pants always wear out in the knees? I always just assumed that everyones pants wore out in the knees. After all, where else do you get that much wear? I never paid any attention to it when I was a kid but then once I got married I realized that Lisa's pants don't wear out in the knees. In my entire life I've only had one pair of pants that didn't wear out in the knee and that was in college. I was working with some acid in a lab and some of it must have spilled on the counter because a few days later I had some big holes right in the crotch of my pants where I would lean up against the counter. I only bring this up now because in the last three weeks I've had three pants develop a hole in the knee. I don't throw my pants away once they get a hole, I just use them for working around the house and in the yard but now I have about five pants for working around the house and only one pair that are good for wearing out of the house. Bummer.
