Good question!Is there anything about being fat that most thin people don't realize or that you weren't aware of until you became larger or became intimately acquainted with a large person?
Not going to lie, I laughed a little before I finished reading the part about phones. I very much expected you to say that you would also call out "Who is it?" to a ringing phone. I want to do that fairly often.3. If there is a knock at the door, you're more likely to shout "Who is it?" than get up and see. Same goes for if your phone isn't within reach - you're more likely to let it ring.
I'm not very big, but that one gave me pause. I would go nuts. I already can't stand how low-rise most readily available pants are for skinny people. I imagine the problem is exacerbated by variance among body shapes. Are there any simple solutions to this problem that you've found?- (as a guy) it can be really hard to keep pants up when your waist is bigger than your hips!
For me, lower rise pants are actually better. Those I can do under most of my belly and just above my butt, where there is a spot that I can get things to stay in place. The higher the rise, the more they just fall down -- and they won't stop at that point where low rise pants will sit because they have to be looser if they are sitting that far up my belly, so once they start dropping they can fall right off Of course I could just position higher rise pants at that one half-decent spot, but then the crotch is half way down my thighs and the cuffs are dragging on the floor. (this might be easier for taller guys, who might be able to go down a leg length and just wear things low, but I'm only 173cm (5'8" and a smidge), and proportionately shorter in the waist and legs, so I'm already buy a 30" leg, as short as most stores carry).I'm not very big, but that one gave me pause.

A significant amount of women's brands have started listing the rise of their pants (correct me if that's not true). That seems like a pretty logical thing to do with men's pants as well. Shame that they don't.Of course, nobody actually lists the rise on pants.
I hear that. People are super weird about clothing. Deviate even just a bit from local norms and the looks start pouring in.The simple solution would clearly be to just wear suspenders, but I really hate drawing attention to myself so generally dress to blend in, while suspenders are seen rarely enough that they would be more inclined to draw attention.
