I sorted through a bunch of my socks picking out all the ones that have holes in them and as you can see it is a lot. I blame it on my crappy steel shoes I wear at work. It's not like the shoes are too small and fit tight, they just like to rub holes in my socks, especially on my right foot. I could fix the holes, but that is way too much work, so I will throw them in the garbage. That is what lazy people do, but don't worry they are 100% biodegradable. Now I need to get some new shoes AND new socks.
