You go into the changing room at the department store to try on new clothes and before you realize it you have hit all of the front mandatory poses before you even tried on your first pair of jeans haha! This happened to me the other day. The damn lighting in those things is usually really good!

Any of you guys ever do this? or am i the only conceded one?! :D

LMAO!! I thought that I was the only one. I can remember shopping with the wife and kids. My daughter was trying on some clothes and I was in the mirror in the store, hitting shots and yelling at my wife " Look those veins were not in my lower abs yesterday!!!!"

Guilty as charged. But in our defense, the lighting is superb in the fitting rooms!

How many of you guys have trouble walking past any mirror without stopping to at least check out one body part? Put yourself in front of a mirror with that kind of lighting and angles and some extra time is going to be spent, unavoidable so don't try, just enjoy it:D

I was on a road trip one time with a friend and we stopped at a sporting good store to pick up some stuff for a party we were going to that night. I went into the dressing room to try something on and there were 3 mirrors positioned in such a way that you could see your entire back very well and the lighting was amazing. I was in there for 10 mins hitting poses. When I finally came out my buddy asked where the hell I was and I told him about the mirrors. He then went in there for another 10 mins LOL

i like car windows too=-) Sometimes the angle is good, especially on a sunny day!

My girl laughs because she can see my feet under the changing room doors and she says i do this little shuffle and she can tell. Occasionally she will start laughing me and call me out to hurry up=-)

You're a bodybuilder when you're in the hotel room and a girl you just met just took her clothes off and is naked on the bed and after you stripped as well you catch a glimpse of yourself in the bathroom mirror and the light/mirror is sooo good, you start posing, ignoring the girl, and then turn to the girl and start showing her how good you look while she's looking at you really strange.

Yeah, I did that... :eek:

My biggest bitch. Nothing fits off the shelf. There's no such thing as a collar you can button off the shelf. Go to men's warehouse and try to buy a shirt, you'll end up in a tent sized shirt that has enough extra material that when tucked in looks like you have a diaper on under your belt.
T-Shirts are fine. Dress shirts cost a bunch but I'm proud to pay it:star-:ars
