I used to buy warm winter socks from Walmart. They had little bumps on the bottom so you didn't skid all over the floor and kill yourself. I loved them. I went this week to buy some more because mine were worn out.
I brought them home, put them on and although women's socks are one size, they were too tight. They started digging into my ankle; they were tight all around my foot. Now I know I am not svelte, but I do weigh the same as I did last time I bought some.
Not two weeks ago I had bought some black dress socks to wear with my black pants. They had been too tight also. I had thought this was just a glitch. But now that two different kinds of socks have been too small I can see it is no glitch. No, they are trying to save fabric, yarn or wool.
My mom bought my sister some slippers for Christmas. Her size is an 8 so we found some that said size 7-8. I am an 8 and tried them on; they were too tight. Mom ended up buying her the 9-10 which did fit me. I am not a size 9-10 shoe; I never have been.
I know the clothes are no good there, they all shrink and fall apart, but I figured the SOCKS & SLIPPERS would be okay! Nope. That's it, I'm done.
As George Bush said, "There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee, that says, fool me once shame on, shame on you - fool me, you can't get fooled a gain." That's right Georgie.
