Thread: Put your socks on before your pants!

    Put your socks on before your pants!

    As often as I've put my pants on I should have learned. This morning my big toe nail caught on the pants leg and bent the nail back. There is a blood blister under the nail and I may lose it but the toe looks ok.

    I learned that the hard way just like you...but about 40 years ago! It makes it easier to put socks on too because there are no pant legs in the way. However, I take the socks off before the pants. The pants slide over the feet easier and going in that direction do not catch on toe nails.

    I'm sorry I know this isn't funny but I guess I will have to learn from you two older ones, I always put my pants on first but not after reading this.

    Yup I always put the socks on first sometimes before I even put my boxers on just out of habit. Shirt I always put on last just because!

    I don't know what it is but it wasn't like this before I got hurt but I hate the feeling of things touching my stomach. Like if i'm wearing a tight t-shirt and its touching my stomach it drives me nuts. Not sure why I have normal feeling on my stomach but i'm sure its something to do with breaking my neck

    I didn't feel a thing and the toe isn't broken so I'm sit-n good. I say that litterly because it isn't something that's going to keep me in bed. My wife trimmed the nails shorter so yeah, no harm done!
