They look funny.
They seem unbalanaced-
wonky, if you will.
And often they are different styles.
How can a human being wear a low-rise sock and an ankle sock and not want to burn their feet off at the discomfort? I mean, come on!
I know of a guy that writes numbers on his socks. He always knows which sock belongs to another and he wears them all evenly so they wear out the same.
I used to think that was a bit obsessive.
But now I think he may have something.
