Poor old Jeans and Stupid Shop Assistants

Ah my favourite jeans, have been wearing them for years, bought back in the UK before I came to Malaysia.

Finally time to retire them I think.

The button hole already koyak..


The balls ventilation entry has grown too large..

Balls Vent

I guess that’s the problem with having genetic thunder-thighs, my jeans always wear out in the same place..

Jeans are an odd thing for guys…I guess most people are like me, they buy quite a number of pairs of jeans, but usually only end up wearing one or two.

One becomes the favourite, the rest just take up closet space and the second is used when the first is being washed.

I went out and bought a new pair from Bum…

Unfortunately the shop assistant decided to leave the security tag attached, hello…do they train you people? Surely this is the abc of selling something…take the money, remove the tag, bag it and say thankyou.

Security Tag

But no, somehow she managed to leave the tag on.

I tried breaking it with the hammer, but it was quite soft plastic…so it just deformed rather than shattering as I hoped

So I resorted to ripping it out, which left a small tear in the pocket on the jeans, but it’s better than walking around with a security tag on my ass.

Although on second thoughts, it could be quite a fashion statement…I think it might draw some of the wrong kind of attention….SHOP-LIFTER!!

I guess I could carry the receipt with me too.

    couldn’t stop laughing on your situation.
    I actually did have the same experience here in Newcastle, Burton shop!
    Had to bring back the jeans i bought for my boyfriend to have the magnetic thingy pulled out.

    Hmmm, maybe they can make all shoplifters where security tags in future, the same way that some American Judges make Sex Offenders wear T-Shirts with ‘Sex Offender’ printed on them.

    That way, when a shop lifter walks into a store the staff will be immediately allerted. 🙂

    Mossie`Ol Chin: Yeah so blur leh, people never train their staff, pfft.

    meendee: That one I have no idea..I guess the thing was disabled already, just not removed.

    KY: That’s a valid theory.

    Jase Lee: Yeah or my balls are too big, one or the other..

    9: Yeah I was.

    k k j m: For some reason no it didn’t.

    vss3t: Yeah I couldn’t be bothered to go back to the shop. So I ripped it out, hardcore!

    terenceg: Yeah…calculate the time, parking, petrol, toll…is it worth it?

    Boss Stewie: Yours is torn because of the adult nappies you have to wear..

    lotsofcravings: Aye old one was Ralph Lauren, bought in UK, I’ll probably get some Diesel or Next jeans when I go back, the ones in UK are really nice. I’m currently into Renoma jeans though, love em.

    Dabido: Yeah I thought of something like that, it’s not beyond possibility too with the take-up of RFID tags growing.

    CincauHangus: Shhhh..

    Paul: That sounds gay dude.

    Kelvin: These ones fixed twice already leh, time to let go.

    Ultimately, you’d reckon that they’ll pad that part which your balls would be hanging? :p Just joking!
