Yeah, I know. I said it. I think a wallet in a guy's front pocket, especially jeans, looks dorky. My column today has initiated a boatload of angry mail from people telling me I'm wrong. And some other things.
I know putting a big, fat wallet in your back pocket causes back problems. Just like I know carrying an oversized heavy purse on your shoulder causes back problems. See, I don't think anyone even needs to carry around all that crap. If you have ten credit cards in your wallet, having a bad back isn't even the beginning of your problems.
And I heard about security issues, as well. My kids are also carrying around phones and iPods, so this is about more than wallets. They usually zip them into inner pockets on their winter coats. Women don't stuff their wallets into their front pockets, and we mostly manage not to have our purses ripped off. But again, I get it, and I wrote it anyway.
So, hate away. Let's agree to disagree this week.
