Question
Posted by: Frusty | 2005/12/14

Eeeek!

Just took HIS new jeans out of the tumble dryer (can't hang things outside here, they don't get dry) and they have shrunk!!! Oh Boy! Tantrums tonight!? I don't think I can cope with one so soon after the previous one! Help!

Any chance he can manage a crash diet and fit the tiny jeans ? Or pop them back in the dryer till they fit the cat or dog ?
But I like Shooter's sugegstion, too ; if the shrinkage isn't too severe, you could suggest that well, he HAS been putting on a lot of weight recently.

I love the "dried arrangement" - classic !!!
Yes really it sound like you are stuck with a real turd. Why can you not talk back, you are not his child, stuff him.

When he walks through the door, put the jeans in front of him and tell him to get it off his chest.

I mean you would shrink his jeans on purpose, does he not know that accidents do happen?

Or just try and shove him in the tumble dryer, maybe the shrinkage will work on him too.

Mmmm, two problems there. Firstly, my son wears the same size pants as him (he is only 13 but as tall as him as well) and secondly, talking back is like adding fuel to the flames. But shrinking them some more is sounding better by the minute. Parsley in my ears might do the trick, then I won't hear him rant and rave.

Frusty, on a more serious note.
I dont understand really what is the big problem. Is he THAT petty!???
Its a jean, the stores have got plenty!?

I feel sorry for you. and it reminds me how lucky I am. Cuz if its my husband he will even try to fit them on just for a laugh & parade in the house with them. WITH THE LACE.

has your husband got no sense of humor at all?

Tell him you actually bought the jeans for your son to grow into in a few years time, but you cant wait that long, so decided to shrink them. Your hubby should be happy that you are so thoughtful, and if he gets angry tell him he is so inconsiderate and selfish.

So try shrink them some more!

I am having such a good laugh here, but at the same time it feels like there is something eating away inside my gut. I just know what is going to happen. Oh Poo!

Hahaha, Tango, that is the funny part. He had to get new ones because he had put on weight. Hahahaha.

And yes, they have shrunk a LOT!

Believe me, I have often thought of the lobotomy, but not with a nail and hammer!!! My bare hands and his dried arrangement were the tools of choice!

What the heck, just go for a frontal lobotomy, one nail to forehead with a hammer.

That way you save on cotton, trying to keep his mouth shut while sewing, and saves on having to make up fo rhte shrunk jeans. Wont have to cut up your lace knickers either.

I just noticed that there's a big difference between "on the bottom" and "at the bottom". I'm imagining a guy somewhere walking around in too-small jeans, with ruffled lace on his behind LOL.

I am not worried about the shrinkage in that area of the jeans, a bit of a squeeze there might make him think! Hahahaha. Just thought that the dried arrangement there might crumble to dust!

I think chop a hole and put lace there as well ... LOL

Sewing may help, but that wont stop his voice becoming sqeaky! What you gonna do about that, chop him or chop a hole in the jeans

Yeah, then sew some pretty lace on the bottom to make them longer!! Heeheeheehee.

Not a problem. Hide the jeans for a while, and feed him paper with water sauce! Within about the jeans ought to be the right size.
