Once upon a time, I used to work at Target and have to wear khaki pants, right?
Well. Khaki. Here's the thing about it. It's TERRIBLE. And only those who have worked at Target (and probably Walmart and maybe Hobby Lobby) will ever understand the hate. It's rare to find khaki's that A)are flattering AT ALL. B)last more than ten seconds. (I mean seriously, khaki's biggest demographic is retail workers. They get down and dirty. Make your pants out of better material.) C)don't cost you like a million dollars.
On top of those things, you have no choice but to wear them like, everyday. Unless you're a lazy bum who never works or something. I wore khaki's close to everyday for two years. And I hate them a lot. I probably hate them even more than the average. I think most of that is because of what they represent though. So, you know, there's that.
My dad and I were talking about pants today (because you know, we do that sometimes) and I was saying how "I got these new work pants and I got these two colors because they were the only ones in my size... besides KHAKI. I just, I can't do it! I can't bring myself to even CONSIDER buying them. Much less WEAR them." Because really. What color am I going to wear with Khaki? Obviously I can't wear red. Target. Or blue. Walmart. I can't wear black or white. Target Starbucks. I can't wear pink or orange or yellow because I either look horrible in those colors or just don't like them and therefore don't own them. So that leaves me with... what? Green and purple? Gray? Mmmm, yeah. That doesn't justify buying khaki colored pants.
I think I'll have to distance myself from Target and khaki's for a while longer. Maybe in two years (or never) I'll be able to wear khaki's again. But really, I didn't wear them before I worked at Target so... I probably won't wear them after I worked there either. My co-workers think my aversion to khaki is pretty funny. And yes, I agree, it's a little weird. But... I just can't do it. Maybe it's because I HAD to spend so much of my money on khaki's the past two years... the reason that I physically cannot even bring myself to think about maybe buying them. Maybe it's something else. But, it ain't never gonna happen!
Don't even get me started on Red... I still have a hard time with it. And I only own one shirt that is even SLIGHTLY red. But it's a "vintage wash" so it's barely even considered red.
Anyway, hope you have a good rest of your week and a lovely weekend!
P.S. My new job is going WONDERFULLY. Even though I get to deal with a fair few of grumps, it's defs better. And I actually really enjoy it. :)
