She blathers on and on and on about ‘The Underpants Rule.’ According to Ragen, The Underpants Rule states:
everyone is the boss of their own underpants so you get to choose for you and other people get to choose from them and it’s not your job to tell other people what to do. To illustrate, if you’re considering saying something that starts with
- People should
- Everyone ought to
- What people need to do
- We should all
- Nobody should
- You shouldn’t
- blah blah things that have to do with underpants that aren’t yours blah blah
then there is a 99.9% chance that you are about to break The Underpants Rule.

She has a right to demand that they carry clothes in her size, no matter the economic cost. Or the cost to the business. It is just something that they ‘need to do?’
No wonder this chick never graduated from college – she can’t even understand the basic principle of supply and demand.
