Hypothetical: You're walking around during lunch break with your fly down. Would you rather a stranger tell you that it's down or a coworker?

Something tells me this is not hypothetical.

HAhaa....i like scott's answer.

I think i'd rather have a coworker tell me. Man that is embarrassing.

I'd rather have my coworkers unzip in a show of solidarity.

Karen said...

stranger. because then at least no one at work will know and bring it up repeatedly.

i have to tell a certain coworker maybe once a month to zip up... i'd like to think he appreciates it.

if it were me, i guess i'd rather have a coworker tell me? i don't know, a stranger doesn't know me and would probably never see me again (unless said stranger is phil).

Haha, thanks Scott. Actually I was looking at a pair of jeans a woman was wearing this morning. They were skinny jeans. (And I was thinking - stream of consciousness: skinny jeans, odd color, should they be dark, should they be light, these are light, hers are tight, they have to be tight I guess, but this pair has a weird crotch, oh no they don't, her fly is down, should I tell her, yes, better me than someone she doesn't like at work...) So I told her and she thanked me. The End.

Oh, so to answer the question: I think I would prefer a stranger tell me. Less embarrassing.

And Cate, I dearly appreciate it when you do that.

I just like it when anyone lets me know of this. It happens more than it should for me.

At my first job interview I had to sit in a circle in a tight cubicle while 3 people interviewed me. After, I noticed not only was my fly open, it was open as much as a fly possibly could be...and I was wearing tighty whiteys. Didn't get the job, but they did say they were impressed!

A stranger. Beenu judges. Makes me want to not know the person
