This is a question "You're doing it wrong"

Chthonic confesses: "Only last year did I discover why the lids of things in tubes have a recessed pointy bit built into them." Tell us about the facepalm moment when you realised you were doing something wrong.

Balls out!
I go swimming quite a bit. In fact, I've just come back from a lunchtime dip, which reminded me of this.

I like to think I get dressed in a logical manner. Underpants first, then shirt, then trousers, then socks and finally jumper, if I'm wearing one. If I'm wearing a t-shirt, or a shirt which isn't tucked into my trousers, then I'll put it on after my trousers are on. As I say, logical. At least to my mind.

But I've witnessed some odd behaviour in the swimming pool changing rooms. The oddest of which is the bloke who wears a suit to work. When he gets dressed after swimming, he puts the top half on first. He'll put his shirt on, knot his tie, then start combing his hair. Meanwhile, his cock is dangling free in the breeze being, as he is, completely naked from the waist down. I'd like to tell him he's doing it wrong* but I've no intentions of being regarded as a willy watcher or something.

*strictly speaking this question should be 'You're doing it wrongly'. RIP adverbs.

He is obviously a massive chlorine bender and should be avoided.

Is that like an airbender or firebender?

I like to think that the whole point of 'you're doing it wrong'
is that the phrase is also being done wrongly and therefore it's irony.

I suspect that this might be giving internet people a bit too much credit though.

I was surprised that no pedants had picked up on it though!

But the ugly manparts are the bits that take the longest to dry, and don't take to a rough towelling too well (depending on how rough of course)
So the man in the suit is actually just ensuring that the wrinkliest part of his body is being given the most amount of exposure, to evaporate any residual moisture in the aforementioned wrinkles.

Makes sense to me.

Or he just doesn't care.

everytime i scroll past your title
I say it to the theme of "Schools out for Summer"

"Balls out ....doo duh doo dee"

But you're doing that wrong.
"School's out for Summer" = 5 syllables

"Balls out ....doo duh doo dee" = 6 syllables

So how can that be right?!

To be fair I always get that when somebody tries to write singing along the lines of "dum dee duh dum dum duh deeeeee!" I always try to sing the song using the sounds that they've written and it never bloody scans!

Me too. What's wrong with us?

Obviously the rest of the world can't sing.

I'd like to teach them though.

He knows you are looking and ONLY gets dressed like that when you are there.

I do try not to look, but when a man with a tie all done up is doing his hair with his cock out, it's a bit odd.

I always do pants first, then bra, trousers/skirt and then top. Being naked from the waist down just looks odd. I figured this out when Calendar girls came out - one of the pictures I saw had a woman with a top but no bottoms on and it just looked wrong.

This reminded me
of my recent life drawing class. We only actually got a live model once in the whole thing, and the day he came in he was a lovely chap of about 50 who had a tattoo of a cat on his bum-cheek. It was oddly not as weird as we had dreaded it would be, even when he was in a position at which I was "staring down the barrel", so to speak.

Not odd, that is, until he had finished and, halfway through getting dressed, our lecturer remembered he needed to discuss something with him. He stood there, fully dressed above the waist but with his (neatly shaven) cock flapping around in front of everyone, having a quiet discussion about something or other. Until he noticed us all staring.

Strictly speaking....
"wrong" is an adverb as well as an adjective.
"wrongly" is an adverb only and usually comes before the adjective it describes.

eg: "He played the tune wrong"
and "the tune was wrongly played" - both correct

GoodLord, you're right enough!
I didn't know that. You have just added to my wisdom. Next time I'll not be such a smart arse.

being technically correct...
Is the best kind of correct. It makes me all warm & fuzzy inside.
