Despite the seeming 'mancode' that a heads up is inappropriate if a brother forgets to zip, I'll let him know every time, awkward as it may be. I remember a schoolyard response, "... how would you know if you weren't looking there!" Whatever. I'm grateful a guy has ever let me know before; in one case before I stood to address a group! I owe you.

A pal of mine was on the beach once and wandered over to chat to two girls sitting nearby. his wife looked over at him and realied his cock was sticking out of his speedos but was unable to attract his attention. He chatted with the girls for a couple of minutes before returning to his wife and children. He tells me that he still blushes when he thinks of it twenty years later 

I don't say it to someone standing before a crowd, because there's no graceful recovery.  I would otherwise.  But truth to tell, I am not very observant.  I certainly wouldn't object if someone saved me embarrassment.


I'll tell you.  I'll also let you know if you've got a whitehead or a booger that needs immediate attention. 

Yeah in the past speaking up would bother me but now I do it without thought. And that also applies to bits of food on the face, etc.

It's usually women who tell me, never men. And I am never looking down there, so I've never told anybody.

The 'mancode'  must be different where you come from, Art. It would be considered very bad form in my neck of the woods if a guy didn't inform you your fly was open. Discretely if not well acquainted; Loudly among friends: XYZ, your barn door is open, your flying low, feel a breeze?

The wife and I enjoy our Greek and Lebanese food... There is usually a bit of spinach involved in her dishes. We always do a teeth check before leaving the table.

i'll tell the guy if i know the guy.  and then tell him to wear a kilt and the problem is moot.

it sounds embarassing Steve! where did it happen?

Dude, I love that feeling.....after being at the gym and taking a shower.  Nothing makes you feel more manly than a good workout and walking out the door swinging freely!!

I definitely want to know, and appreciate being told.
