There are a lot of types of PACKERS: Over-packers . . . light packers . . . last-minute packers . . . Green Bay Packers. (???)
A new poll asked people how many pairs of UNDERWEAR they pack when they’re going on a trip. Specifically, they asked about being gone for SIX nights.
22% of people said SIX pairs of underwear . . . one per day. 36% pack one or two extra, since they don’t take up much room.
Some people got excessive: 6% said 12 . . . or two per day . . . and 4% said “more than 12.” But hey, if there’s one thing you’re going to over-pack, it might as well be underwear.
13% of people gave the WRONG answer: FEWER pairs than the number of days. Those include: 5% who will pack five pairs . . . 4% who will pack four . . . and 4% who said “three or fewer.”
Men are a LOT more likely to not pack enough underwear. 20% of men pack fewer pairs than the number of days, compared to just 8% of women.
The full demographic of under- underwear packers is: Younger men from the West or Northeast.
(I get being a minimalist when it comes to packing, but this is silly. So, you’re either: Not changing your underwear every day on vacation . . . doing laundry on a six-day trip . . . or wasting your time away shopping for new underwear.)
(And if it’s “young men” from the coasts not packing underwear, they’re PROBABLY not planning on doing laundry or shopping. Just sayin’.)
