Lines in the Sand
A modern gentleman has developed a few hard-and-fast criteria.
For example : A pair of his underwear falls on the floor of a laundromat when he’s transferring a load between the washer and dryer. He is embarrassed to pick them up because the nearby employee will know they’re his.
If a modern gentleman is self-conscious that his underwear are little more than holes connected by an elastic strap, it’s time to buy new pairs.
