Perfectly logical

Overheard in the gym locker room:

"The bottoms of my pants are all damp. And my locker is bone dry. And when I put them in, they were dry. Someone has been in here."

"Is anything missing?"

"No. But a few weeks ago I gave the manager my lock combination."

"Ooh, you better get a new lock."

Yes, of course. Because the first thing the gym manager would do if he could open lockers is to reach in, dampen the hems of your pants, and then lock it back up again.

That's not your MO? It would totally be mine. I'd be the mysterious Hem Dampener, and people would live in fear of their wet pants. Mwah ha ha ha...

I'd do the same, and I'd twirl my handlebar moustache while doing it.

I may have quietly mentioned that maybe the floors of the bathroom stalls were wet.

waiting for it to sink in....

Lol, chances are they placed their damp socks on their undies while they were getting changed. It used to happen to me all the time. Either that or the Roaches fed a hosepipe into the locker, filled the knickers up and used it as a paddling pool.

Quite the mystery!

Hmmm...strange hem dampeners are breaking in to wreck havoc. Sounds like a problem that would probably make the evening news in a small town.
