Back when women all wore slips under their dresses, occasionally the hemline 
of the slip could be seen below the hemline of the skirt. Everyone knew the 
proper way to deal with that was to attract the attention of the offender 
discreetly and say "Excuse me, but I think your slip is showing."

It was NOT, repeat NOT, "Hey ! Slut! Whadda ya mean going around showing 
everyone all yer underwear like that!"

Let those who have ears to hear and a good historical imagination and for 
whm the shoe fits take note.

Sincerely yours, Grandma Manners.
