Smile "BABE! They Are Tweezers!!"

Like most southern California males I have plenty of shorts. At last count I had around 10 pair for work and leisure, not counting my running shorts which are pretty much being un-used right now!

Anyway, as most guys, I have a favorite pair that I wear all the time as Angie puts it. I don't think it's ALL the time They are the perfect fit at my knee for length and gray so my spillage stains don't show so much

One slight problem with them Since they are older and stretched out the friggin zipper puller upper thing falls down into where the crotch ends. I can't get it out without taking the shorts off or using something to pull the zipper up.

Well EVIDENTLY Angie's tweezers ARE NOT! A tool for doing that!

How was I supposed to know? I use the ones in my bath to repair all kinds of things around the house

She said, when she caught me, "NOW! I know how my tweezers are dull and I can't pull a hair out! "

I guess I shouldn't have come back with..."Hey, don't be at me. I'm not the one who is 1/2 Italian and 1/2 Irish with a predisposition to have a moustache!"

Well....I better get back to this huge honey-do list she gave me on her way to bell practice and church bazaar duty......

DANG!....me and my big mouth

Hope your husband doesn't do stupid stuff

BEER lover that you are, I can't believe you didn't know the zipper puller upper thing is called a "pull tab".

SLIDER: The device that moves up and down the chain to open or close the zipper.
PULL TAB: The part of the slider that you hold to move the slider up or down.

(Obviously I didn't know and had to look it up!)

How come I never thought about using tweezers?

Hmm... Well this only works with certain shorts/pants, but can you put a tiny safety pin close to the bottom of the zipper so it doesn't get that low again? Only if it can be discrete. Otherwise you'll look silly.

Gary - there is this marvelous invention called a needle, and it usually hangs out with another one called "thread".

Put them together and take a couple stitches at the bottom of that zipper. The pull tab won't disappear and Angie's tweezers will be safe.

And - I can't believe that you reached for tweezers instead of needle-nose pliers, anyway!

I'm with Angie on this one - around here NO ONE TOUCHES Mom's tweezers!

Isn't that a girlie thing?

Once again...I had a few stitches down there years ago...never going there again with a needle!

Well ya see SCOOTER that's the thing....she won't allow me in her tool box either!

I'm with Angie on this one - around here NO ONE TOUCHES Mom's tweezers!
I certainly found that out!

ha! If I had a dollar for every pair of tweezers that has gone missing in my house .... I'd be able to replace half of them!

At least you were using them IN the bathroom and not removing them from their natural habitat! (would be giving Hubby THAT LOOK if he were home at the moment).
