here's how I have been entertaining myself over the last hour at work.

one of my co-workers is wearing a button down, golf club style shirt, long sleeve, with an embroidered pocket on the front. I always harass this guy for his wardrobe, just for fun..

so I notice the pocket on this shirt is almost half way down the front...

I have been singing The Kinks "Low Budget" every time he passes my office, of course changing the words to "Low Pocket". He insists it's not that low, I just keep singing.

Here's the facts, you decide.

the guy is average height, about 5'9" or so.

I actually made him let me measure the shirt - the pocket is 8" down fron the shoulder seam, it's almost entirely on his rib cage, I told him he may as well wear a fanny pouch...

When he asked why I was measuring... he says "what, are you gonna look it up ?"


I say, "No, I know people that can answer anything"

"who?"

"people"

Whats your verdict chit chat ?

When people at work talk about 'that guy', I think they are talking about you.

Whether long-sleeved or short, the top of a breast pocket on a golf/polo shirt should usually fall right around the same height as the third-from-the-top button.

I'm not wearing a shirt with a pocket, you insensitive clod!

How am I supposed to know where this alleged 8 inches is in comparison to a shirt with out a pocket!?!?! Hmmm? How?

I'd say my pocket starts 5, 6 inches tops from the shoulder seam. That is a rough estimate based on my hand though. I say mock away.

He's probably more afraid of you than you are of him. Just get in there and snap it.

I'd say it's pretty close to the green shirt, maybe a tad lower.

I just snapped off a quick photo but it didn't come out very good and the pocket is not prominently displayed. Plus he told me to F off. shake

You should check again and make sure you don't work with a Kangaroo.

They can get a little testy when you make fun of their pocket.

The easiest way to find out if your co-worker is a kangaroo is to reach into the pocket and feel around for joeys and unoccupied nipples. Warning: some kangaroos may view this as sexual harassment.

Hmmm, checked Employee Handbook, no mention of this.

Well, the pocket on the dress shirt that I'm wearing is 7" from my shoulder, and in line with the third button from the top. So, 8" doesn’t really seem to be that low.

If a tall man could nestle his balls in the pocket with ease, then the pocket is too low.

My verdict is that you shouldn't complain when he flips out and gives you a toilet bowl hairwashing.

If an object placed in the pocket would rest upon his beer belly (or where a beer belly would be if he is too fit to sport one), then the pocket is too low.
