Not only that I think every pair there had a wider waist than the inseam. WTF?

Maybe just short, fat effers shop there.
Viking, try shorter heels. I've heard how you Cali boys roll on the weekend. Hehe:-P

Nowadays when people say anything about my skinny legs I just say "Yup. I had to tie knots in 'em to get some knees."
I'm very short and I think it's funny when people say to me, "You're so short!" I always reply, "Really? I didn't notice." Random Thoughts Thread - The Club House

Hey just cause you guys were blessed being tall and slim don't put down those of us who were not. Put down the store for not having a good selection. All my life I have to hear jokes about my weight and height. I have dieted several times taking it off only to gain it back. I realize that's on me, but I can't do a thing about being 5' 9 1/2". I am the tallest one on my Moms side of the family and the shortest on my Dads side. I was also blessed with the baldness on Moms side

Going to gun show in Owensboro with my son today. I love getting to spend time with him. I wish I could have done much more with him growing up. But know that he is working in the coal mines too he told me he now knows it wasn't my choice to work as many hours and days that I did. But even at that I regret that I did allow some of that precious time slip by. For all you young people out there don't let this happen to you. They grow up so quick, you will look around one day and wonder how all those years slipped by you.

I just turned 28, and I believe I'm just now getting the testosterone and metabolism spike that I should have gotten as a teen. I'm losing weight, getting more toned, and feeling pretty aggressive. My confidence has shot through the roof (to the point of being cocky), and I'm ****ing HUNGRY! It could be the manly beard though...

Taking mine to a local park with a few miles of nature trails through the swamp, and then on to the West Monro gun show. Now that I've got him back, I'm going to stop at nothing to make every moment last.

A couple years back I was going to the YMCA and really losing weight and starting to look good. I was also thirsty all the time and drinking lots of water. Then bam wound up in hospital almost died, that's when a found out my weight loss was diabetes. So please make sure to watch your health. Oh and now all weight is back.

Considering that I've struggled with my weight since I was 12, that is definitely something to keep in mind. I've been almost 40 pounds over weight since then, except for when I was in the Marines, and I still had to fight it. I don't have any symptoms as of yet, but I'll definitely be on the lookout for any.

On the 36 inseam, i usually just order online. Carhart's "dungaree fit" is my favorite. In high school, i can remember ordering 30x36 jeans; now i am more square at 38x36.

Ha ha! That's funny! You would not believe how often I see tall trannys in heels. The funniest part is that they actually can find a size 13 spike heel shoe! BW, I have a funny story regarding that if you want to hear it.

M sons and I get the "Wow! How tall are you?!? nearly every day- or at least when we go out in public. Sometimes I will tell them and then ask "And how short are you?" if they are being rude.

I never put down short people unless they are rude to me about my height and weight. As I said here several times, this happens with great frequency. All my life I have endured jokes and rude comments about my height and weight. I am honestly just as tall as I need to be, my feet are firmly planted on the ground and my hat sits perfectly on my head. If I were any shorter that would not be the case. My brother is 6' 8" and that is too tall in my mind because it forces you to duck all the time, you can't fit in most cars, beds are too short, chairs don't fit and pretty much you have to adjust yourself to fit anything at all. That causes a host of musclulo-skeletal problems throughout life. I really do pray that my son stops growing here soon, he is maybe an inch taller than me (I am 6' 4").

I haven't had to buy pants for a couple of years but the ones I have are getting ragged now. Time for a couple new pairs soon. Thank God you can order them online now, years ago it was a daylong shopping trip to find them, and they usually only had 2 pair maximum in my size.
