    AMEN to that! My SIL who is well, to be blunt, large insists on wearing these things. I'm not saying anything.

    There's a time and a place for everything. I would rather see leggings under the ultra mini skirts than not (both are seen a lot here) and when I do yoga, capri length leggings with an oversized t-shirt are the most comfortable. Other than that - I'm with you snoopy and gabriel.

    Gutmutter, I wear your yoga outfit for riding my bicycle! As for a time and place for everything...there will never, ever again be a time or place for me to wear actual shorts outside my house! Capris are good for some things, like covering up the most scarred and beatup knees you've ever seen, so I wear them too.

    I have to admit that I am yuuugge and I wear leggings, but only under a dress or a knee length shirt or tunic. When you're as large as I am a fuller pant leg just has far too much fabric to be comfortable. But yes, leggings with a fitted waist or hip length top is flattering to almost no one.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    And that my dear Rattus is my gripe about this fad, not the people who merely wear them under something. And now my pet peeve is BREAKING NEWS and "SEVERE" weather warnings/watches - Since when is 60% humidity a hazard? If you have respiratory problems you should stay somewhere that's best for your health, and to those of you who insist on running in this weather, LEAVE THE DOG AT HOME.

    Can somebody tell me how long news is considered to be "breaking"? I've seen "breaking news" crawls for hours on the same subject. Annoying.

    Cell phones. Why do people feel the need to use the cell phone while walking, ordering food, driving, conducting business in an establishment, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME??
    I mean, really.
    Oh, and the gawdawful ringtones.

    (I know this has been said a zillion times, but I'm currently really, really annoyed)

    Mav, I think I've already said this, but a recent experience made me want to help a woman eat that damn cell phone.

    I was in the quick check line at Walmart few week go. The woman in front of me, didn't speak, or understand English well at all. She had a baby in the cart, along with all her WIC groceries which were mostly the wrong weights, and so on. The clerk was trying to explain that she couldn't get so and so and so on and so on. She wasn't understanding much at all, but that sure didn't interfere with her cell conversation. She reached in her purse for her billfold, one handed of course and was attempting to pay for her items which weren't covered by WIC. The clerk couldn't get her to understand what the problem was but she never missed a beat on that phone. I was wishing that someone would take the phone and dial an interpreter so that we could move the thing along.
