When talking to someone, I would not notice hair in someone's ears, but occasionally could not help observing hair sticking out of his nostrils. Drives me nuts! Makes me want to gift him one of the nose hair trimmers I often see advertised.

And I have not seen that with a woman ever. Now, that would drive me insane.

Have mostly used it on jeans so far. Even belt loops and pockets starting to tear off. For holes, I usually trim threads and put a same-color patch on the inside.

Caution - it does not work on thin fabrics! It just goes through.

Sad to say, it could easily have been filmed in the pretentious town where I w#rk.

I thought that was hysterical until I remembered I stopped at a furniture store in my active wear and they would not wait on me . In my defense I was on my way home from the gym.

Because my face shows my age (almost 63), I figure I can't get away with tatty-looking clothes the way a flawlessly-beautiful 25-year old can. I'd scare small children.

My retirement wardrobe is a lot more relaxed, though; I dress up a bit for church (don't really need to) and my weekly Toastmasters meeting, but the tailored business suits I have in mothproof bags mostly just sit there. I've got an Hermes scarf that, from my research, looks like it could get about $250 on e-Bay and I'm seriously considering selling it and putting the $$ in our granddaughter's 529 account. Same for a couple of very dressy jackets (one brocade, one silk floral) that I may get away with describing as "vintage" since they're over 20 years old. Someone else may as well enjoy them.

Dressing and one's 'look' is as variable and individual as something like.... When to take social security payments. It all varies with the individuals circumstances. Other than avoiding the extremes (Wearing a Tux to dig a ditch, or going to a fancy party in your dirty gardening overalls) there is no one answer.

Hopefully, one does what works best for the person.

As long as my zipper is up, I think I'm good to go.

Haha. I went to w*rk like that on more than 1 occasion (inside out shell over pants or a skirt but under a jacket) and only realized the seams were showing when I went to the ladies room.

My uniform now is jeans, a long sleeved t-shirt and very old Mephisto clogs. I donated at least 1/3 of my closet the day after I retired 2 weeks ago and probably more can go but I don't know what yet.

Only when your zipper is down are you good to go, trust me on this.

+1 Same goes with crazily bushy eyebrows. My barber always offers to trim mine, though I do it myself.

Another thing that drives me crazy are huge, prominent facial warts. I guess they grow so slowly that they become part of the landscape, but at some point.......

If there is enough liquor involved or it is dark atmosphere, as Mike Tyson would say "what difference does it make."

Ewwww! Seriously I see women with clear and obvious facial hair.
It's easy to get laser hair removal!

A young girl may be able to get away with a mustache if it is really faint. An older woman, not so much.
