A conversation often heard at our house about 20 minutes before Marc has to go to work:
Marc: "Oh I forgot to find work pants." Ruffles through closet. "Here's some that aren't too wrinkly."
(Why is it that Marc has a closet full of wrinkly pants? Well I could blame the teeny, tiny, old fashioned, wrinkle making washing machine and maybe the insufficient dryer with limited space that literally ties our clothes into wrinkly knots , but the actual reason we have extra pleats and creases in our wardrobe is that I have absolutely no desire or impetus to iron those creases out.)
...Marc pulls pants out of closet, shows them to Kylie.
Kylie: "Marc those pants are way too wrinkly to go to work. Those pants are ridiculously wrinkly!"
M: "Oh they're pretty good, I'll just let them hang over the chair for awhile. The wrinkles will fall out after I wear them."
K: "MMMAAARRRRCCC, that's ludicrous! Those pants are are SOOOOOOOOOOO wrinkly, you can't be seen outside in pants like that! Give them to me, I'll go iron them."
M: "No really they're not wrinkled very much. They'll be fine."
K: "Give me your pants you crazy boy!" (Marc reluctantly hands Kylie his pants to quickly iron before he has to leave.)
Faithful readers, since we continually have this discussion at home with no resolution, you need to help us out. Are these wrinkly pants? Would you wear these to work? These wrinkles are a teensy bit extreme but Marc definitely would have said that they would be fine if they sat out for a bit.
marc wants it noted here that he explicitly stated this particular pair of pants at this particular place in time were NOT in fact fit to be worn to work... i do have standards you know.
i would like to advise you that if you were to vote pro-wrinkly, you would have all the emerg nurses in chilliwack solidly in your camp as Marc has long had a reputation as a wearer of exceptionally wrinkly clothing. Just two nights ago he was swarmed by teasing nurses as he started his shift who asked him if he had just gotten out of bed. (I was out of the house and therefore shirked my ironing duty.)
marc wants it noted here that he was wearing a scrub top. i cant be held accountable for the laundry practices of the chilli gen hospital.
Another factor in your decision may be this video made by his preceptor upon his graduation from residency making fun of his wrinkly attire back then (For those of you lacking time, the laundry improved Marc starts at 4:30):
