The saggy pant debate:
Where should I even start with this one? I guess I should start with where it pissed me off enough to think about posting about it.
It was a three-day weekend, time to go to the store and pick up a few beers. I have found a good deal at the local store for some tall boys (24oz cans). I grab the 15 cans in a box and head to the counter. This counter is set up for fast business. Large area to set your beverages and two cash registers ready to take your money.
