Three letters to little annoyances...  
Dear whoever designs women's dress pants -

Please, consider that at least some of the women out there who have to wear "nice" clothes for work are still functional people. Yes, I have a purse, however, I STILL NEED POCKETS. Putting "pockets" in and then sewing them shut is dumb. Then having them only ~1 inch deep when I pick out the stitches is just pointless. Fine. Make the pockets "optional" for the fashionistas, but please give a girl the option to have somewhere to put her chapstick.

No Love,


Dear Professor -

While your class is amusing and I applaud the decision to have a nice, short exam period, having 26 multiple choice questions AND eight (EIGHT!) essay questions on a 60 minute exam is a tad much, don't you think?. Consider having only one or two essays or giving us the more usual two hours for the exam. Or - for the love of god, man - have the exams in our hands at the opening bell, don't hand out the three separate parts individually.



Dear Winter -

Stop it. You're in that nasty phase that is just all grey and wet and cold and ugly. Go away. I don't like you.


Current Mood: coldcold

Amen about the pants. Pockets are our friends.

Winter can surely take a holiday. I would much rather have gray rainy spring days instead of all this ice crap.

I am so with you on the pants. The sewed teeny pocket is incredibly dumb.

I am with you on the pockets.

Also, I was sort of horrified when I learned that how many students in my classes only put 3 sentences down on the essay portions of tests. I never had enough space or time to write when it came to essay tests.

They sew the pockets together for display to keep the garment from getting stretched out of shape. Once you've bought the pants, clip the stitching and use the pocket.

Yeah, I KNOW that is generally true, which is why I thought these would be acceptable. However, the pockets AFTER being clipped open are still nominal at best. :P

Never had this problem. But, then again I am a boy.
I agree with those responding, if pockets are included in a garments design they should be " Useful " not decorative.

EIGHT essay questions in an HOUR?

Not short answer, not "write a paragraph", but real essay questions?

What kind of course is this, Academic Sadism 666?

Of course, I'm sure you nailed it, regardless. *wicked grin*

Short essay, but they wanted more than five sentences apiece and many could have been several pages to properly answer.

I feel pretty good about the exam... but then I just need to pass, it's not a class I really have an investment in - it's just for fun. :)
