Wired for fashion

this honorary menopause moment from Edder:

Several years ago my girlfriend and I rode the bus to work downtown. She lived one bus stop before mine and would save me a seat in the morning. In those days I wore suits to work. One morning as I was making the 2 block walk to my stop I noticed people staring after me as I walked by. "I'm lookin' sharp!", I thought as I strode by in my suit, tie and trenchcoat with my bag slung jauntily over my shoulder. I boarded the bus and made my way down the aisle to my saved seat, but before I could sit down my girlfriend said "Wait" and then pulled a wire coat-hanger that was hooked on a belt loop on the back of my trenchcoat.

That's better than toilet paper stuck to the back of your pants or shoe!

Good thing you didn't sit on it!

Great story and awesome title.
Reminds me of the time I sauntered out of a restaurant with a placemat somehow hooked onto the shoulder strap of my purse.

Or my breast-feeding friend who left her blouse unbuttoned. No wonder so many men were ogling her; even though at the time she thought it was her attractive post-baby figure.
