So its pretty damn cold in San Diego right now, so I figured I'd hop on Amazon to see what kind of deals I can get for Sweatpants on Black Friday.

SINCE WHEN DO THEY SELL $70-$90 SWEATPANTS AND WHY ARE THEY ALMOST THE ONLY OPTION?

People, I am looking to spend $10 or less here. WTF?

Well I have lived in Gilbert, AZ and Lincoln, NE most of the past 15 years and neither place had non-scary Wal-Marts at 1am. I don't think either of those places are very 'ghetto'. Strange people are at Wal Mart around that time. My favorite was the night before Thanksgiving when I was in KC night before Bills game (this one may have been in the Ghetto) when there was about 5 families doing their Halloween costume shopping with their 7-8 year olds at 2:30am.

I have worked in refrigerated and frozen trucks for the better part of 20 of those years, to boot.

God damn Californians. 2 years ago I spent a couple weeks with my cousins and they were warning me that I might want to put on a jacket because it was going to get down to the high 60's... Thats fuckin short sleeves and shorts weather. It got down to 40? Holy hell!!!!!!!! Yesterday I drove to St. Louis and it was about 35 and started snowing and what was I wearing? Tennis shoes, ankle socks, jeans, a t-shirt, a fleece, and a Chiefs cap... GROW A PAIR OF BALLS!

I bet if you stopped shopping at high priced stores for a pair of fuckin sweat pants you could find what you are looking for.

Alright, not only did I get a pair of high quality cotton Hanes Sweatpants for $6, but I also got a matching sweat shirt for $6.

In regards to me being sick, I usually get sick 1-3 times a year. Some years 1.

I moved back in with my mom and she works in the medical field and always comes home sick, so I've been getting sick off her recently.

And tell me the truth, do you guys who live in colder climates not wear Sweatpants at night when it gets down to 40?

Also remember not a lot of houses here have heating like they do out there, including my house.

Back a little over 30 years ago, I had a girlfriend that lived in McClouth(? been away too long), and I lived and worked in Leavenworth.

I hate coats.
Always have.

After spending the night at my girlfriend's, I was on my way to work when I hit a patch of black ice.

Went off the road and broke the axle.

All I had was my jean jacket, and I was mid way between, about 4 in the morning.

About 10 miles either way.
5 degrees out and a wind chill factor of 15 below.


Walked the ten miles back to the the girlfried's in that jean jacket.

Froze my ass off.
