Lost a pair of work jeans to the laundry war

The way it works is you have your laundry ready on Tuesdays and some ladies from the community wash your clothes and hang them out on a clothes line for you.  You are responsible to pick them off the line.

I was warned that my work jeans would be free of stains when the ladies are done.  Of course we both understood my work jeans might only survive a couple of washings with that kind of thoroughness.

I’ve often joked that my wore out permanent stained jeans were the real deal in the land of phony wore out permanent stained fashion statement wear.  Evidently someone agreed.

The culprit should be easily identified.  They will be the ones with the fashion statement that requires two belts to keep in place.

Edit 3/9:  the jeans magically reappeared on the line yesterday.This reaffirms my faith in the fashion genetics that guide us. It is nice to see that even though jeans around your knees can be a fashion statement, jeans around your ankles isn’t yet.
