First, No one wants to see my legs. But the reality is that an experience I had back in the 80's keeps me wearing pants. I was mowing an apartment complex in a not so nice part of time. I ended up with a hypodermic needle stuck in my leg. That was at the height of the aides scare. I worn pants ever since.

Started years ago wearing shorts, but after years of bloody spots, grass,dirt,and bug splatter covering my shins. I switched to cheap thin cargo pants. My shower time is greatly reduced and my boss lady appreciates the lack of grass clippings throughout the house..

I couldn't imagine going back to shorts. Pants are not as hot as I thought they would be, and a whole lot easier dust off between jobs.

I always wear shorts in the summer. Unless I'm doing landscaping, then its jeans. And more towards winter when it cools down I wear jeans mowing.
