Dilemma

So, I was in the office supply store yesterday and I stood in line behind a woman in a lovely light blue summer dress. It was one layer and made of a very sheer fabric. And her print undies were extremely visible. I wondered if anyone had made her aware of that fact. Should I? Would she be offended? Would she want to know? I think I would want to know. But then, I am the type of person to get a little put out when people point out when the label in my shirt is sticking out. I always think, "Who cares? It's just a shirt label!" So, maybe this woman doesn't care that her underwear is visible. Maybe she is quite comfortable. I couldn't think of a way to help so I just left it alone. What would you have done?

Kept my mouth shut. And look at it this way... at least she was wearing underwear.

Good point. I guess I'm always so insecure that I have something in my teeth or that my skirt is tucked into my underwear and i don't know it that I always hope someone would tell me. Then again, maybe she knew and just didn't care. There was really no good way to broach the subject. So I let it go.

well, I just had a biker tell me my underwear was showing. I sort of knew before and I didn't really care, but once he pointed it out, I was super self concious about it. So maybe she already knows and doesn't care.
