The whole Boston jacket thing (Read 1773 times)

    And she Don't Give a F... About Her Bad Reputation!

     

    That's what she ( I ) said. Sorta.

      I have not read the whole thread myself

       

      But I see 4 reasons not to get a Boston Jacket

       

      1)  The occomplishment means nothing to you (Personally)

      2)  You hate to draw attention to yourself

      3)  You feel its a waste of money - You can find much cheaper jackets

      4)  You hate souveners

       

      I am sure there are more - But all 4 apply to me

       

      I can sympathize with the majority of people that really want a Boston Jacket - For my sister it will be a joyous occassion - Year's worth of work.  She is not really a look at me person - But loves souveners.  There are many, many reasons to get a Boston Jacket ...

       

      When I decide to buy stuff, it isn't because I think someone else will think its cool or not - Screw everyone - I get stuff because I want it.

       

      You think too much about it.

       

      Well, maybe the whole Boston jacket thing isn't appropriate for your sister.  The marathon means a lot to her, yet she doesn't want to draw attention to herself.  Why not forget about the jacket and instead display her medal nicely but discreetly in her home?

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

        Or wear it around her forehead as a ... (ok, I don't know what the word is)

         

        Here's a picture to convey the idea:

         

        It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.


        Awesome

          When I volunteered at the Boston number pickup a few years ago, someone holding a gigantic pile of Boston swag asked if they could buy the lanyard on my volunteer tag. I guess they'd already bought everything else. Feck wad? Douche? You decide.

           

          Unless you need it the day of (or the day after) the race, wait and order the jacket a few days after the race when it goes on super sale.

              Ok, now that we've made it to page 12, can someone explain to me the term "feckwad" and whether its use conveys a level of douchiness in situ?

                It means whatever we want it to mean... we are the definitive source on the interwebs.

                I'm thinking it's basically feckless + fuckwad.

                  That is awesome.  Ha.

                    Look, stop screwing around and tell me what the word is for jewelry that a woman wears on her forehead?

                     

                    I'm just not buying "superman 2 villain" as the answer.

                          Ok, I think I want to throw out #1 as unlikely. That gets me down to two. I can't remember the rule -- if you can narrow the multiple-choices down to two, then it is better to go ahead and guess, instead of wasting more time trying to figure it out?

                            Hold please.  It isn't a "bindi" per se.  It is a bindi as interpreted by Flava Flav.  That's a much different kind of thing.

                              It isn't a word, it's a phrase. "Forehead jewelry". Which does beg the question, is there afthead jewelry?

                              Yes, you do smell like that.

                                 No it doesn't...which doesn't beg the question, are you a bigger feckwad for this common mistake, or am I the bigger feckwad (one word, both times) for pointing it out?
