All of my comfy cool/cold-weather pants are developing holes in and wearing out at the upper-inner thigh. All four pairs! Why?! And how did it happen all at once? I put my big toe through the fifth pair last month. I paid to get them patched up, but that didn't work at all and they just ripped open above the patches. So those got dumped. Grrr.

My exercise pants, yeah, I get that I go through them pretty fast, being (ahem) hefty as I am. But the pants I only wear for around the house? Argh! And there is otherwise zip, zilch, nothing wrong with them. Not even a frayed hem or a worn knee.

I'm particularly bummed because this is happening to my "grumpy pants"—a pair of blue pants with Grumpy Bear sitting on a cloud on the thigh. If you press on the cloud, it has flashing red lights in it. I love these pants.

Harrumph. Harrumph, I say!
