This wouldn't happen at Barneys. The romance of poverty only goes so far, as this story proves.

This happens EVERY DAY at Barneys.

What do I smell? The bleach I just poured in my eyes after reading that. Thank you David!

Okay, gross.
And why the heck would you hang them back up? At least drop them on the floor so a person-who-works-there type person would pick them up and discover the incident on their own...but sheesh, I'd tell the store in a heartbeat.

The odor of pussy indicates that the wearer either has issues with doing her laundry, or with hygiene, or both. It's then not so surprising that such a person would wet her pants.

In some circles, that would make those jeans more expensive. No word if panties were included?

after i complained to her that the men's restroom at crystal mtn. always smells like a giant turd, my daughter told me that the women's restroom at smells like "vag".

this is worse.

Obviously, someone had wet their goddamn pants, gone into Value Village, put on a different pair of jeans, and hung their piss-soaked jeans back on the rack.

Or maybe they wet their pants in Value Village. I always have to pee in there.

You bastard. I was eating a cookie when I read that. Eating cookie! Blagh!

True story - my ex gf from a few years ago told me that when she was in high school, she and her best friend used to go to stores and try out zany/weird/ugly outfits and crack each other up and occasionally, she'd laugh so hard that she'd pee herself.

"So you'd just take the outfit off and put it back on the rack????"

Okay, I just wanted to chime in to say that nearly the exact same thing happened to me in 1998 at a Tacoma Value Village (the one by Mega Foods) except somebody had obviously shit their pants and done the same emergency switcheroo. If it doesn't have a price tag on it, there's just too much you don't know. You must move on.

WASHINGTON -- The number of Army suicides increased again last year, amid the most violent year yet in both the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. An Army official said Thursday that 115 troops committed suicide in 2007, a nearly 13 percent increase over the previous year's 102. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because a full report on the deaths wasn't being released until later Thursday.

Call me a naive gay man, but does the smell of pussy having just hung out in a pair of pants normally overpower the smell of wet urine still in them?

I'm suddenly nostalgic for life as it was before I read this story.

I had a human shit incident at the Value Village on Capitol Hill. It was on the bottom level, down by where they keep all those dirty toys and bedding. My friend stepped in it, and proceeded to track it all over the place. I smelled it, and started gagging -- I think it was pretty fresh. I have not been back to that Value Village since that time.

Straight men can smell pussy across a continent. Apparently this woman can smell it across an incontinent.

(What do I win for that one?)

The one question I'm left with after reading this: in what way does this story make a copy editor's job difficult?

Posted by Smarmy Macaroon | May 29, 2008 2:21 PM

But um.... how do you determine that a pair of pants is cute enough to want to try on and not notice the soaking wet stain in the crotch and legs?

Were the belt loops just out of this world?

@16 Remember how you felt after reading it? Yeah- they did too.

Posted by UNPAID BLOGGER | May 29, 2008 2:28 PM

"Prices so LOOOOOOW, they'll make you wet yourself!"

Posted by COMTE | May 29, 2008 3:22 PM

K @17--the jeans were dark, dark blue. You really couldn't see how wet they were. You had to be unfortunate enough to smell and horrifyingly, feel. I'm still grimacing, a week later. I'll never be the same.

Chuck Berry is on his way from St. Louis as fast as his Lincoln will take him!

@15, my most sincere admiration.

Posted by Spoogie | May 29, 2008 5:03 PM

Still warm? I'll bet the offender was still there, watching you and getting off on it.
