I Just Found Out That People Put Their Socks On Before They Put Their Pants On?

Please, help me settle this argument once and for all. In the morning, when you’re getting dressed, which comes first...pants or socks?

Hello everyone. Every morning, for the last 29 years of my life, this is how I’ve gotten dressed: pants on first, then socks, then shoes.

This morning, however, I was feeling sorta funky, and decided to shake things up. I put my socks on first, then my pants. Then I made the mistake of tweeting about it.

You guys ever put your socks on before your pants? Really interesting way to shake up the morning.

The reactions were EXTREMELY intense.

@broderick you’re a monster if you put your socks AFTER the pants 🤣

@broderick yes as i am not insane

@broderick Ryan the fact that you put pants on before socks is somehow the most disturbing thing I’ve learned about you in years.

A couple people said I’d look like a chicken??? Standing in just a shirt and underwear???

@broderick You stand in your house in a shirt, underwear and bare legs like some sort of chicken every day? Suddenly you make more sense.

And more than a few disgusting people kept telling me that socks are pants lube, which I am really unhappy about.

@broderick socks are trousers lubricant

@broderick The fuck, do your feet come pre-lubed

I tried to set the record straight, once and for all.

Correct clothing order: Underwear -> shirt -> pants -> [sweater] -> socks -> shoes -> coat

And it made things even worse.

Am I the wrong one here? Is this how you all look every morning?

Am I the only one who’s not walking around their room looking like this?
