LOL. My engineer friend at work would sometimes show up with his crew neck sweater on backwards. I could see the tag stitching from the outside of the sweater right in front. I never knew whether to tell him or not. ???

Years ago I had two similar pairs of shoes, one black and one brown. Let's just say I showed up to work one day, looked down, and realized why I should turn on the light before putting my shoes on...
I used to take my clothes to work with me, and wear my gym clothes because I would hit the gym first and then shower and dress for work. One day as I was dressing in the locker room I reached into my gym bag and realized I'd brought one clog (3" heel) and one sandal (flat of course, no heel), and I was wearing a dress that day. I had to wear my gym sneakers with a dress all day. I couldn't go home to change as I carpooled and was not driving that day.

I would guess that about every other morning I put on my tee shirt backwards. And the night before I am sure that I lay if front down so I can just pick it up when I get out of bed and slip it on.

I think there must be some grumpy zombie or some such creature who turns it around when I am asleep.

I think part of the problem is that many of us don't look in the mirror much anymore.

I still remember when I was in college (back when dinosaurs roamed the earth) I had a professor -- an older woman -- who sometimes forgot to button up her blouse before coming to class. I never want to be her.

So I have a mirror on the inside of my front door, and I can't avoid seeing it before I go out. There's also a post-it note stuck to the mirror saying, "Do you have your wallet? Phone? Keys?" since those are things I tend to forget.

I first read this thread as backyards dressing, I must have garden on my brain.

Perhaps while folding, hanging laundry make sure labels are facing in, not out.

When I was working I used to always worry that I would go to work still wearing my slippers. It never happened but I always had to look down to make sure I was wearing shoes. Actually, I still do that today but these days it wouldn't matter that much.

One day I walkout to go pick up, when I got there I realized I was still in pajamas. I was not a teenager even, I was in my 40s.
