    So...I go to my favorite c-store for coffee (where the little chica hits on me) for coffee...

    And OF COURSE four little turd hood rats are walking around with their pants so far down their butt cracks are hanging out like pencil holders and their boxer shorts are visible to the bottom of their butts.

    UGH.

    Am I just wrong, insensitive to style, or am I just old fashioned because I want to grab each and every one of them, and give them a wedgie so high their daddies (IF they know who their daddies are) will scream in pain?

    Is it just me?

    My last year as an FTO I even had a noob fresh from the academy wearing his uniform trousers slung low on his hips, and his duty belt was similarly low slung...if he had tried to draw his gun, he'd have done a pull up, not out.

    I told him he better get into proper uniform Ifreakinmediately, or I would wash his ass straight out of the department...yes an FTO could do it during the first year...no questions asked.

    It's not just you. I HATE sagging pants. It's stupid. It's funny to watch the wannabe gangstas walk around and either hold on to their pants or pull them up every 2 seconds though. :D

    That is a way to get attention. Obviously you have never worn your pants that way.

    Next time you see that, copy them. If management gets upset, point out that equal rights apply to all.

    Make sure you don't have brown spots :)

    While living in CA I seen a guy trying his best to run from the cops. He had one hand holding up his pants as he ran. He let go and his pants fell down around his ankles. That's when he hit the sidewalk face first and knocked himself out. I starting LMAO. The stupid idiot deserved it.

    The brown spots might help your point. :D

    I never understood the point of wearing your pants that way unless you wanted to look like a total moron.

    What I think is really funny is when they run and try to hold their pants up. Better yet is when(true story) one of these clowns robs a place and gets chased. He ends up getting caught because he can't run due to his pants being around his knees!

    No Azlawman, its not just you and its surely not because of your age. Im 27 and i absolutely hate it, too. I think its totally disgusting that i have to see some jackasses asscrack and/or boxers everytime i go in walmart or stop for gas. I cant stand to go without a belt even when my pants fit.

    The practice of wearing your jeans/pants low began in prisons. It is just another fad or statement of social rebellion of the next generation. Long hair on guys, rock and roll, tatoos and motorcycles, its all the same just a different execution.

    Behind the indecency laws may be the real issue — the hip-hop style itself, which critics say is worn as a badge of delinquency, with its distinctive walk conveying thuggish swagger and a disrespect for authority. Also at work is the larger issue of freedom of expression and the questions raised when fashion moves from being merely objectionable to illegal.

    Sagging began in prison, where oversized uniforms were issued without belts to prevent suicide and their use as weapons. The style spread through rappers and music videos, from the ghetto to the suburbs and around the world.

    I had heard that the "sagging" look was prison advertising for "availible". I have not seen anything to support this thought:rolleyes: but I have no issue with this theory with employees who are sagging.

    It's ignorant and offensive and it's just one more indication of a morally bankrupt society.

    I'm grateful that I don't see it in my small town, but I do see it in the next town over where we do our shopping. However, even there it's very rare.

    Now, when I worked in the 'hood, it was unusual to not see it.

    The upside is that the style makes for slower targets and a you can use a shorter lead. ;)

    Now, now guys there is a reason for the drooping pants.

    You see they carry fully loaded "clips" in their back pockets.

    Now don't you feel foolish? :rolleyes:

    I think it's ridiculous and stupid. Not only do they walk holding their pants up with one hand or pulling them up every couple seconds but I've seen them walking with their feet spread apart trying to keep their pants on. Just the other day I was at lunch with my youngest son and we saw someone like that. I told him when that kid is about 45 years old, he's going to look at pictures of himself looking like that and realize how stupid he looked. :)

    My little brother walked in the door the other day and my dad said
    "ya know, if I had gone to school with my pants around my knees, my shoes untied and my hat on crooked they would have sent me to resource." It's my generation and even I don't get it. Silly boys.

    There's benefits to the style.

    1. If your son ever dresses like that you know for sure you have big problems that need to be solved.

    2. If your daughter brings home a boyfriend that dresses like that you know for sure you have big problems that need to be solved.

    3. Minimum wage employers love it because it's a sign the person will work for minimum wage and will never have any ambition to move up into the hiring managers job slot.

    When I was working for a car dealership several years ago I would mentor young prospective mechanics right out of high school (and a couple still in high school). One of them was into that stupid look, and when he put on his new uniform he pulled his pants down over his butt and I walked around him and "pantsed" him, telling him his damned pants had to be on his hips or around his ankles, not somewhere in between. He was a tough nut to crack, pulling his pants up whenever I was near enough to pants him. I even would take and zip-tie him a belt that he would have to cut off to take a leak. That didn't work very well, but what eventually did it was one day I got everybody in the shop (myself included) to wear their pants "his style". Seeing a bunch of old men in their 40's and 50's wearing their pants like that and mockingly playing "gangsta" got him to change his style at work at least. He ended up washing out. It was a wasted effort on my part but I felt good about "winning" the battle. That kid is probably in jail today. He was the only one of the kids I mentored that washed out. Most of them still work at the same dealership today and have become journeymen mechanics.

    I smacked a 15 year old boy across the back cheeks with a boat paddle in the Sportsman's Warehouse. He was at the gun counter (like he's even old enough to buy), was leaning over it, with a hole in his boxers and pants completely below his A$$. So I walked up to the second floor, grabbed a boat paddle, walked back down and smacked him. They asked him to leave. Then they asked me why I did it, I said "someone needs too, and it's not like his mama's going to"

    My pants sag plumber style all the time, but it's because I have a gut and a terrible disease called noassatall. Seriously, I have a body type like a potato walking on toothpick legs.

    I do wear a belt though, and hitch em up every time it feels breezy.
    I'm thinking of getting some suspenders...

    Two things my granny demanded EVERY "true" man have. She EXPECTED HER grandsons to have 'em, would even check periodically. One was a BELT and two was a "hanky" or as others would call them a kerchief or even known as a snot rag. I go nowhere to this day without either.

    My eldest used to (Notice i said "USED to") sag his pants. Until one time up at the Christmas party at my moms house with a house full of strangers (to him) he strutted thru the kitchen with his pants half down and she pantsed him...got him good, not just the pants but his boxers as well, there he stood in front of god and everyone with his junk on display, red in the face like a woodpecker in the head. That cured THAT problem! :D
