Tact and Gussets

Janet: Every time I go into the kitchen I get an electric shock.
Tactless Boss: (scathing) Well you should stop wearing all those synthetic clothes then.
Janet: (looks down at her leather shoes, linen skirt and cotton top) but...???... even my pants are cotton...

This sparked a discussion on the merits of wearing cotton pants. (naturally this occurred after the boss had gone) It was proclaimed by 50% of the girls in the office that, for hygiene and comfort reasons, you should only ever wear cotton pants. The other girls asked innocently 'but why?' The worldly wise (and fungally challenged) girls laughed knowingly.

By way of explanation I attempted a demonstration of the look a girl gets when she is trying to satisfy the urge to scratch an itch in an intimate area with out anyone noticing. (sort of a similar posture to a little girl who desperately needs a wee) This got 2 reactions: one of total recognition from some girls, and one of complete mystification from others.

How lucky they are to be un-afflicted, but for the rest of us, there is always the yoghurt...

Of course, all quality synthetic knix nowadays have a cotton gusset. And even some tights (although hold-ups are obviously the way to go for any right-thinking girl)

Yeah but maybe I have a wonky body but... (look away now if you are a squeamish disposition) I find the gusset on many 'fashion' pants doesn't quite line up with where it's supposed to, if you see what I mean.
