He brought his Fanny with him...Page 18 of 21    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21)

I asked him whether he had a special permit to carry one of those after 1993. Surely they've been outlawed. He didn't find the humor in my comment or the subsequent comments that I made all night.


well damn girl...I think that's the cutest thing...

I'd love your sense of humor if you came at me for wearing a fanny pack. I sure would have played it nicely and would have easily found something about you to zing you on.

Deal you should be more concerned about than his wearing a fanny pack is that he did not find you to have a sense of humor.

Which means HE did not have a sense of humor.


Kinda reminds me of Shallow Hal when Paltrow asks Costanza "Is that a Member's Only Jacket?"

Costanza replies..."WHy yes it is!"

"So what? are you like the Last member?"


I thought your humor was cool...

I made fun of a guy with a fanny pack at a bar a while back. Said something to the effect of, "Macho man called and wants his purse back." However in response, he opened up the front flap just enough so i could the hammer of his .45.

Whouldda thunk fanny packs would become the latest in weapon concealment apparel?

Needless to say, I won't talk smack to fannypack wearers anymore; I'd much rather be gunned down by someone in a "Frankie says RELAX" shirt.

I agree that it's really goofy to wear a fanny pack. But if he opened it and you saw it was stuffed with $100 bills, I bet you would be saying: "What a great fashion statement. Let's go shopping and see if we can find a bigger, better one for you."

Shallowness abounds.
Fanny pack: OUT
Red Sneakers: OUT

Forget about personality, humor, affection.
If they're wearing the wrong sneakers F*CK 'em.


~can't catch my breath, lmao~

Embarrased is embarrased, doesn't really matter by what; it's a personal thing; is it major or minor and can you deal with it. Just that fact that this guy felt that his fanny pack was a part of who he was would have been enough to sent me running.

Maybe he found it easier to carry his G19 in their rather than in an IWB holster. I know guys who are older/don't care about looking trendy that carry in the "man-purse". I'll stick with IWB holsters, though, lol.

Or maybe he is just a different animal, that carrys a fanny pack for other reasons much less justifiable.

a fanny pack is real handy for getting to things you need very quickly like your 9mm Glock or your nitro-glycerin tablets ..or maybe your blood sugar meter and corresponding insulin shots ...or maybe someone who is deathly allergic to wasp and bee stings just might need an adrenalin shot at arms reach.... yea your shallow ..different people have special needs and some people need a fanny pack... fashion is so stupid ..I actually the other day saw a guy at a bike rally ... on a Harley ..with a leather fanny pack ...no one was making fun of him ..I would bet that it had something made of cold steel in it ..and if you made fun of him I bet he would shove it up your back side

The BF always wears his swiss army knife in a leather case on his belt along with his two cell phone holders. The kids refer to it as his Batman utility belt.
But it sure does come in handy when one of the knuckleheads locks themselves in a public bathroom stall.

It's been my experience people will tolerate a lot more
when they are attracted to someone. A good looking
guy with a fanny pack is a lot more appealing than a doofus
wearing one.

But that's just me. There's a lot of things I tend not to notice
when I'm happy or in like.

Here's another thread - along with the one about the date peeing in the shower - that I just love every time it comes up again, for all the comedy fodder.

For those who weren't here when her profile was still up, the OP was gorgeous. I imagine this probably helped her to get away with tweaking him about it... which also brought out something really deeply unattractive from him!

I mean, everything was wrong here. First, he wore it. (Yeah, I'm with her on that!) Second, she made fun of him about it. Third, and most important, he equated the choice of an accessory to being black! Now there's one of those unfortunate things you can never take back... it's like something out of Seinfeld.

But OMG, seriously, the man wore a fanny pack!

actually I have several ..I do the hiking and wade fishing thing ..they make a ready tackle box ...however I now use the ones for hiking that have the two water bottle holders on the side .... the water bottles are great for things that you don't want to get wet ..like cell phone ..and car keys with remote door openers ..I found water bottles keep water out as good as they keep water in ...but again I think fashion to be just stupid ..If a fanny pack was functional I would wear one any where ..and I really look for them to be coming back ..with all the new gadgets people think they need to carry these days ....like cell phone ..mp3 player ... I pad ....personal organizer ...pepper spray...tazzer.. glock...m16..hand grenades.. .and IEDs

and you still see them a lot with motorcycle riders .... they actually sell them at bike rallies ..made from leather ...I have even considered buying a couple ...things in your pockets on long rides are uncomfortable ...people are also buying them ..cutting off the straps sewing two magnets in the corners and sticking them to the tanks on their motorcycles ..you can even buy this ready made ...they are great for things you might need to keep at hand


eah, honestly, I'd be less weirded out if I felt their sidearm during a hug than by a fanny pack,


the sidearm is in the IWB holster ..the extra clips and ammo is in the fanny pack

I don't really care if my date is carrying a fanny pack in slacks or jeans.
what I mind is what is in his fanny ,I hate 9mm Glock ,nitroglycerin, diabetes stuffs,his walet and car/house keys. The only matter that I care inside his fanny is condom,condom.condom condom.


You guys can tell I'm a has been comediene who 's trying hard not to do corny jokes..

^^^^^^ Fanny pack or Butt pack is very common here in Reno/Sparks Nevada, women ceased carrying purses because it is swiped while they are playing slot machine/ table games even we have so many securities and cameras around the casinos.. And bags snatchers are rampant here. Most men who wears Fanny pack here are police men of duty or stings , I've seen older tourist men with Fanny pack, I guessed they have more nescessity stuffs more than walet and and car keys that doesn't all fit in their back pocket. or protecting themselfs on pickpockets. just my 2 cents.

I myself carry a fanny pack all the time for my keys and DL in a casino,cabaret or doing volunteer community work , I keep my purse in the trunk of my car.

Thank you Venn...

Thanks Irish Eyez,
From now on I 'll be careful not to ask an Irish man if he likes my flowery fanny ,that would be embarrassing and he will think that I am a coc ko.

My country have 48 dialects, it is confusing,like a lady was saying I feel dizzy,and it means to another dialect I feel horny. There are lots of words that are different meaning in other dialects.

I never really understood why it was called a fanny pack ..in the first place ...most people I have seen wearing one wear it on the side or front any way

but then I always thought you fanny was your backside ..maybe not... guess some young lady could call it her pvssy pack ... but then when she opened it we would expect her cat to jump out


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I think I'm feeling dizzy ...........maybe dizzy does mean horny
vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv


Dizzy, I'm so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And it's You girl makin' it spin
You're making me dizzy

First time that I saw You girl, I knew that I just had to make You mine
But it's so hard to talk to You with fellows hangin' round You all the time
I want You for my sweet pet, but You keep playing hard to get
I'm going round in circles all the time

Dizzy, I'm so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And it's You girl makin' it spin
You're making me dizzy

I finally got to talk to You and I told You just exactly how I felt
Then I held You close to me and kissed You and my heart began to melt
Girl You've got control on me,cuz I'm so dizzy I can't see
I need to call a doctor for some help

Dizzy, I'm so dizzy my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And it's You girl makin' it spin
You're making me dizzy
my head is spinning
Like a whirlpool it never ends
And it's You girl making it spin
You're making me dizzy
you're making me dizzy

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I can see it now ...I pull up to street corner ..this chick in a mini skirt comes up to my window and says ..."i so dizzy " ... I say well get in ..she does ...I take her to the hospital ...she gets pissed ..I'm still wondering.... what I did wrong ..go figure

If a man sporting a fanny pack the "WORSE" thing about him, I'll take him!!!

I have one, and wear it according to where I'm going. i.e. an amusement park (no one wants to carry a purse!)

There are really cool ones by Gucci, Coach and other designers!

I guess I wouldn't have thought anything about a fanny pack. Most men that are active, hiking, skiing, fishing, etc wear them. I wear them, though not out to a fancy restaurant.

If you based your opinion of this guy on the fact that he had a fanny pack, you ARE shallow. My guess is if this guy had been a walking dreamboat, you would have cared less if he had been wearing plaid pants along with his fanny pack.

C'mon people let's get real. If you really want to distill it, the whole dating selection process can be considered shallow. We like what we like and take it from there. Are we supposed to date ad infinitum just to prove we've given every possible candidate a thorough 'vetting' process, just to get beyond the obvious turn offs? Everything we do says something about us and that includes fashion (mis)statements. My vote is with the OP.

You went to dinner on a first meet. Big mistake. Should have been coffee and dutch. Half an hour. No matter how many times you texted or talked. Did he buy dinner by the way? He was definitely odd and who knows what other eccentricities may have come to light if you had seen him again? The stories I hear lol!! You probably didnt really fancy him anyway.

I probably would have been turned off by the fanny pack.. but I wouldn't have said anything about it/made any jokes.. I just would not have seen the guy again if I thought I couldn't handle seeing it.. that would depend on how good the guy seemed in other ways (personality, other aspects of looks).
