    Socks What happens to them.?

    A few years ago, I decided I wasn't buying expensive socks anymore,as they always disappear, just where do they go.?

    I now buy socks from either Primark or Sports direct, the only problem is they don't last long and for some strange reason they don't go missing.

    Do you ever find your missing socks.?

    Keep your high-fashioned socks in a case.
    One will never misplace them.

    I prefer the feel of 10 denier hold ups against my skin, though they do ladder easily.

    The wife blames the dog, I think she's colour blind.


    There's no rhyme or reason to it.

    she would rather go out and buy new socks than keep track off the old ones.

    Then the vicious cycle starts again.

    Soap dodgers steal them and are storing them up awaiting the Holocaust.

    After the holocaust has arrived no socks will be available and the dodgers cannot wear their sandles without them .

    Fcuk off Terry it's only our women that don't wash. Give us Pommie men some credit.
    • 11 per cent of French people surveyed only wash once every three days
    • Poll found fewer than two-thirds of French population shower daily
    • British people bathe more than French, German, Spanish and Russians
    • But other survey found 80 per cent of UK women don't shower every day
    British people beat other major European markets, including Germany, Spain and France, in their weekly bathing habits, according to 2014 Euromonitor International research.
    The UK also trumped Russians, Americans and Australians.

    In the winter i wear mine in bed. But as soon as the sun starts to get warm, 24 degrees today. Off they go to the back of the wardrobe.

    I hate wearing socks.

    I believe that dodgers keep them as an essential part of beach wear, to wear with their sandals.

    My fucking dog buries mine in the garden. Nicks them off the washing line and stuffs them under bushes or digs a big hole and puts them in.

    I was giving the missus big grief about the missing socks and undies, then I discovered the dog's huge cache of my underwear all around the garden. Wtf?

    The question should be ; why do dodgers were sandals?

    If the weather is too cold to wear sandals without socks, why wear the sandals in the first place?

    Because it's cool and trendy, especially when worn with an accessory like a knotted handkerchief over the head.

    As we all know, socks placed in a wardrobe drawer enter a different space- time continuum and travel freely into alternate realities. Occasionally, a washing machine offers the same facility but whereas a wardrobe may mysteriously materialize coat hangers in return for the missing socks, the machine may only proffer a pair of underpants or a single sock of indeterminate origin.

    As this yarn unraveled it was thought to be string theory coupled via worm holes into the time and space continuum.

    A while back I heard a washing machine expert on radio. He was asked the question if washing machines eat socks. His answer was, no they don't, socks disappear into parallel dimensions while being washed in washing machines.
