Postal worker dons pants for first time in 10 years

WALLED LAKE, Mich., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A Michigan postal worker said this winter's subzero temperatures led him to don full-length pants for the first time in 10 years.

Kenny Martin, 56, of White Lake Township, said he has worn his postal worker shorts year round on his route in Walled Lake for the past 10 years, but this winter saw him finally put on long pants to go to work, the Detroit Free Press reported Monday.

"Awfully cold this year. This is the first time in 10 years that I actually started wearing pants to work. Once I hit the zero mark, that was it," Martin said.

Martin said he prefers the comfort of shorts.

"I shovel my walk in 'em. Pants are just an inconvenience. They're for two things. They're for weddings and funerals," he said.

Martin said he was able to wear shorts through previous cold winters, but his tolerance for cold has gone down with age.
