How to Raise Your Cuffs

While having lunch at Zippy's Restaurant recently, my napkin fell off my lap, so I bent down to retrieve it. As I righted myself, I happened to look over to the next table and spot the pants cuff of an older man who was talking to an agent of some sort.

Now ... we've all had pants cuff problems before, especially when they're too long and they drag on the floor, or get all frayed in the back because we keep stepping on them with our heels.

Solution? Alter the cuffs. Raise 'em up a bit.

Not this guy. Apparently he just reached over for a handy-dandy stapler and took care of the problem post-haste.

Quite clever of him. But I wonder if he runs into problems if he has to pass through a security-scanner at say the courthouse, or airport?

"Excuse me, sir, but you have to remove the staples from your cuffs ... no, really, you do. Sorry about that. Next!"

Oh my word!! TOO funny I thought, then recalled all the times we nurses used paper tape to fix a torn hem in our uniform. Of course, it was an emergency. :)

I guess it's kind of like using a paper clip to stand in for a lost screw from the temple of one's eyeglasses.
