HELP! **Update**

**Update**


Since I'm sure you are all dieing to know how I dealt with my zipper conundrum, I slowly walked to the nearest department store, where I purchased a new pair of jeans to get me through the rest of the day.

**Update**



I just got back to my desk after walking a few blocks to grab lunch. The whole time I was on the street I felt the strangest sensation - a cool breeze on my crotch. My first thought was that my fly was down so I discreetly checked to make sure the zipper pull thingy was up where it belonged. It wasn't until I got back to my office that I realized the pull thingy was in the right place but the entire zipper had broken and separated and sure enough my fly was open. Thanks a lot J-Crew for such durable craftsmanship.

So now I'm back at my desk with a busted zipper that won't work and therefore my fly is permanently stuck in the open position. So what should I do?

  1. I am so happy...this is some kind of weird kharma for your rituals when you tuck in a shirt.

    I'd go with some duct tape if I were you.

  3. Buy a big 80s style sweater and keep it in your desk drawer for these and other exciting occasions.

  4. I'm doing a pants dance right now.

    I think you should tuck a sock in your pants and walk around with it hanging out all day. That'll make people wonder.

  5. Use a safety pin. Just, you know, be veeeery careful when putting it onto your pants.

  6. Josh - That would have to be one hell of an exciting occasion for me to break out an 80s sweater.

    haha - Unfortunately, I don't have a safety pin here at work and I'm not walking around the office asking others if they do.

  7. Have a stapler?

    Staple the zipper in to temporary hold until you can get to a sewing kit.

  10. You can grab a sewing kit at Duane Reade for under $5.
