It’s weird when grown men pull their hands into their jackets to keep them warm.
They can probably afford gloves. You can get a pair for two dollars at the pharmacy. They do tear easily. Every time I’ve tried on leather gloves in a store, I see the employees staring at me and making a mental note in case the police ever come in asking about serial killers.
Maybe flexing the finger and making choking motions isn’t the best way to make sure they fit. They should be looking for the gloveless men, they usually have something up their sleeves.
