why do they do this?

i used to think it was just 'old' men [maybe it's walmart - no, walmart brings out the crazies for sure, but this phenomenon happens all over] ... i'm convinced that it's just men. maybe it's that they don't have any fashion sense, or maybe it's that they don't look at themselves before they leave home, or maybe it's a disconnect somewhere in their brains ... something makes them do this:

knee high black socks with black shoes and shorts??
white athletic socks with snazzy black shoes with white accents and shorts!
tan socks, pushed down/fallen down in a scrunched look, with brown loafers and shorts - gotta give him credit for trying to match his socks to his shorts though!
but let's get real people, in the immortal words of my mother:
is that the look you were going for!??
fortunately wives are not to blame for this spectacle ... or i, too, would have to take responsibility!

andy's defense was, "i wasn't going to see anybody ... i was just going to my parent's house."

I think it is a phenomenon that happens a lot in WA. I must admit, you don't see it as much in CA. It seems like up here you see guys with more funky shoe, sock, sandal, short problems...gray socks with sandals always kills me! I love that you posted this on your blog - you rock!
