We're not out of proportion - they just make clothes for freaks!! (apologies to anyone I've just called a freak by virtue of the fact that they don't have problems getting clothes to fit Very Happy)

Actually looking at my body, my main problem is my stomach. The rest of me is a reasonable shape and all in proportion (if a little bigger than I'd like it to be). But to get trousers to fit over my thighs, I can quite often be looking at something that's 4 sizes too big in the waist. So by clothes shop logic, I have a small waist and big thighs - but I really really don't. And I'm obviously not the only one Smile

I've found lately that mens jeans fit much better - and (judging by the last couple of pairs) they seem to be more hardwearing. Which, as someone who can't actually remember when she last left the house wearing anything else, is something of a revalation Smile

Clothes seem to be made for tall, skinny size 8s who wouldn't know a curve if it slapped them senseless..

I'm the same - I have a (relatively) small stomach and tiny waist but massive wide hips and a big old bum Sad This causes problems not just with jeans (I've had the breakdowns in changing rooms before, especially when a size 16 wouldn't fit... I'm a size 12/14!) but also dresses and skirts as they both end up about two inches shorter at the back than at the front Sad Shorts aren't too bad but then I have the same problem as I do with trousers - if they accommodate my thighs and arse they're about two sizes too big on the waist. I don't think I've bought a pair of trousers that have ever fitted my waist and my legs...

It pisses me off that ALL the clothes shops at the moment only stock a variety of four things - neon aztec print which looks like a child has coloured it in with four crayolas, crop tops, high waisted PLEATHER skirts or thin ass t-shirts with some dumb slogan on them like 'Geek!!1!' or 'SLUTTTTT!' Evil or Very Mad

Dresses made for 8ft tall women. I tried 4 dresses on this week and all of them had about 4 inches of material laying on the floor. I'm 5ft 4 not 8ft!!!

I'm fairly tall and used to have no end of trouble getting trousers long enough (I'm talking 15 years ago mind). That's something that has improved loads though - sometimes even regular is long enough now Very Happy

I genuinely think I do as well, certain sounds make me rage.

People clicking pens - in meetings I've been known to grab the hand of a total stranger to make them stop - I can't concentrate on anything that is being said just the bloody clicking.

I've got pretty certain confirmation I have aspergers traits and I think this is that - along with scratchy labels (have been known to take top off in a loo and rip things out with my teeth) and flourescent lighting anywhere in my field of view, particularly when stressed (sunglasses in the office doesn't half get odd looks!)

Inconbloodysistent sizing!

M&S used to be a safe bet but now I'm anything from a 12 to and 18!
Next long trousers used to be OK - now they trail on the floor, whilst the 'regular' are sometimes find and sometimes show my socks (which I can't bear)

Is bad enough that each shop is totally different from all the others but within the same shop its just unbearable. Even my beloved Landsend have lost the plot recently!

I'm another one that has trouble with trousers/jeans but its mainly finding ones that are long enough Neutral
I'm 5'8" which isnt mega tall but i need 34" inside leg
A lot of shops do a so called long version but it is usually only 31", that isnt long ffs Evil or Very Mad
You can get away with shorter trousers in summer when wearing sandals with no socks,
but i agree with Hanspan, i hate my socks showing, it looks stupid Sad

Back on the parent theme I'm afraid. Mothers on Facebook calling each other mummy.

A post stating its their childs first day at nursery and all the repsonses are 'hope mummy is okay' 'mummy be brave' 'mummy its okay, it's harder for you than baby'.

Does having a child revert you to speaking in childish language? To a child I understand it , adult to adult - just no.
You lot talk like adults so am guessing its not normal and FB is an exception.

I have another one too... Inconsiderate parking. "Oooh, look, a space - right by the shop door as well!! ......... Ah. No, some selfish oxygen thief has parked his penis substitute right across two spaces. %%$^%$$%!!!!!". People like that are lucky they still have wing mirrors when they get back to their cars...

In the same vein, with pregnant women - "how's baby doing?" or "baby will be here soon!" UGH it's THE baby. THE BABY

Germans who reserve sunbeds then don't come to them until 2pm then get pissed off because you've moved their towel.

Slightly related - it might just be because I have a few younger people (19/20) on my facebook, but the number of girls who get knocked up, fall out with the father during the pregnancy AND THEN spread shit about how useless he is on facebook is incredible on my news feed. 

Quite amusing to sit and read the thread responses, but then you sit and think... god, there's a child at the bottom of all of this. Mad

We have what's known as 'The Dover Double'. There may be a perfectly good space, but why use it when you can pull up beside it, plonk your car in the road and bang the hazards on? Saves all the trouble of all of that tricky parking malarkey.......
I'm certain that Dover has a higher tosser count than any other UK town. (I come from Plymouth but ended up here by accident. Unfortunately.).
