After reading minijc’s boast of owning 150 pairs on another thread, I felt the need to open my sock drawer for an official count

37 pairs (including the ones I’m currently wearing)

I estimate I have approx 10 pairs currently in the Middle East

I’ll round it up to approx 50 pairs (5 of them can be worn on dressier occasions while the rest are more for sports/short wearing occasions)

The other half that woulda made 38 under your bed saturated in man paste and urine.

10 pairs is an odd number.

Who wants to run out halfway through week 2. 12 I could get, and then slum it through the weekend.

Or do your staff and lackeys take care of that part?

About 15 pairs of the same white sports ankle socks

Time saved matching pairs when they're all the same

Didn’t you have any dirty pairs?


Bought a new pair of hiking socks yesterday. Probably got about 30 pairs.

Probably about 50 pairs. I wear 2 pairs on a standard work day. Typically Black sports socks underneath and some "Happy Socks" on top.

Fuck knows what happens to my socks. Put 2x dirty socks into wash basket everyday and every week on return from the washing machine 1x sock is missing. Dont have any pets so cant blame that and the loons too wee to be involved in any sock shenanigans. Ive asked the missus about this a few times and she seems disinterested at best, with no answer.
This country!

Edit: at a guess probably 40/50 pairs, the majority black (hi parky)

Who the fuck counts their socks?

 

I own some socks... that's as accurate a count as that's ever going to get.

How many odd socks do you own? Probably deserves it's own thread but will stick here.

 

Got a basket full of the fuckers at home. Not all mine.

Easily be about 40 odd socks in the basket at any one time. Get a match every now and again but pile seems to stay reasonably consistent.

Can I guess that the missing socks are behind your headboard or under the bed or mattress?

Probably gone hard enough to hammer nails in with .

You can guess anything you want Hanz. Wouldn't want to stifle you.

 

That's not where they are. Majority are children's socks which makes your guess a touch creepy.
