Possibly a New Species?

  
A new breed of young human beings!

They are referred to as “homo slackass-erectus” created by natural genetic evolution through constant spineless posturing, and spasmatic upper limb gestures, which new research has shown to cause shorter legs and an inability to ambulate other than in an awkward shuffling gait.
 
Often seen roaming on Maiden Ln, Long Pond Rd & Island Cottage Rd.

They used to say the same thing about all you old geezers wearing your slicked-back DAs.

To 10:58AM ~~ I don't think this has much to do with hairstyle ;)

Back in my younger days, I wore my collars up (a la Elvis). My 7th grade math teacher called us "hardrock." A reference to prison inmates.

makes me want to kick them in the ass. Trouble is, I'm not sure where their ass is.

To 11:38AM ~~ Hahahaha!!

And they reason they persist in dressing in this manner is because they get a HUGE emotional payoff from doing so --- raising the ire of people like all of you. Who the hell cares how they dress? Is it REALLLY impacting your life in some way?

To 1:32PM ~~ It's distracting in the classroom.

Easily remediated with 4 drywall screws and a battery powered drill.

Ear protection for the drill operator is strongly recommended, those little pukes make a lot of noise as the screws go into the pelvis.

What is worse than the low pants is the girls wearing the "leggings" that they think are pants! Trust me they are not pants and way too much is hanging out. they don't wear them with long shirts.

SCATS said...

To 5:32PM ~~ Can you say form-fitting? Also ridiculous, wearing pajamas to school. But hey, GCSD used to actually promote this.

Anonymous said...

Please explain. How/when did GCSD "promote" the wearing of pajamas to school?

SCATS said...

To 10:16AM ~~ "Pajama day Fridays" ... and other varied names ... in the elementary schools.

Scats, fact! would it surprise you to know that some of these kids wore PJs and slippers to school simply because they had nothing else to wear?

SCATS said...

To 3:27PM ~~ Another excuse? Isn't it the job of our "professionals" to report parents to the authorities if they aren't properly caring for them? Next you will tell me that the parents opted for the pajama jeans for school ... ;)

Kids are sitting down in the classroom, SCATS. Please give me another valid explanation stating how this impacts your life in any way, shape or form.

Oh, and as for the pajamas at school and your suggestion that the "professionals" should report these families to the authorities if it is thought the child had nothing else to wear. You have OBVIOUSLY NEVER interacted with Child Protective Services or made a phone call to same. They would laugh you right off the phone! In fact, when a call is made to report suspicion of abuse (for example, a child discloses that his mother slaps him across the face repeatedly) -- CPS will tell you that parents are allowed to use corporal punishment with their children and, unless there are marks or other signs of injury on them, the call will NOT be taken. Don't believe me? Try it sometime. Or talk to any mandated reporter (of which I am one as is any educational professional) and you will hear the same. You're out of your league on this issue and your critical commentary that began this thread smacks of elitism and plain ignorance about diversity.

SCATS said...

To 7:12PM ~~ Try to get a grip on your own attempt to be arrogant. Just because someone is sitting down doesn't mean the others around him aren't fully aware of what's covering his backside. The discussion here wasn't about "my life" nor was it about me trying to call CPS. Changing the subject/focus to try to put it back on me is a tactic that's really grown old on here.

If the school would simply state that pants were to be worn at the proper height so that the person's hands could easily slip inside the pockets, the issue would be resolved. No one has any guts in public education these days, and it shows. Those declining test scores hurt all of us. The half who are supporting through their employment the other half who can't/won't work in our society are likely to begin a full-blown rebellion soon.

scat, you often post comments which you know will engender responses that strongly disagree with you. Then, when the inevitable disagreements do show up, you feign that the poster is "making it about you," when, in reality, it's just another person who disagrees with you.

SCATS said...

To 9:39PM ~~ There's nothing to "feign" when the other comment began with: "Kids are sitting down in the classroom, SCATS. Please give me another valid explanation stating how this impacts your life in any way, shape or form."

Clearly, the attempt was made to change the topic from inappropriate attire at school to how that impacts me. Please try to read for meaning so we can all stay on topic.

Oh get over yourself, scat. You often make similar comments to US, and we have to just "sit back and take it." Your turn.

I did not interpret the poster's question as referring to you personally, but rather to ALL of us. Obviously, you saw it differently.

SCATS said...

To 9:25AM ~~ Let's see ... the comment directed the content to "SCATS" by name, so HOW IS IT NOT PERSONAL??

I often wish there was a way to limit particpation here to those with a literacy level of 3rd grade and above.

Anonymous said...

Scats which one of you took it personal ?
It looks to me that people are starting to wise. Up to you guys. Lol

Scat, please post this, just so I can say that *I* got the last word in, just once, ok?

Anonymous said...

SCATS I am with you on this one. How are these hoodlums expected to get a job if they dress like this? Teachers and professionals should set the standards not tolerate this behavior.

SCATS said...

To 9:10PM ~~ Hope you're satisfied ;) lol

SCATS said...

To 10:24AM ~~ Sadly, Greece Central is lacking in "standards" at most every level.

I think there are much bigger things to worry about than this, not to mention its not just in Greece where you will find this "fashion". Having gone to school with kids who wore there pants like this i didn't find it distracting at all, however the girl with the very large ... Well you know. Very Distracting. They are kids, most do it to look cool. The majority grow out of it and become productive members of society,few do not and it has nothing to do with their pants.I personally don't care for it, but you will find many successful people many millionaires who where there pants like that.

SCATS said...

To 9:25PM ~~ People tend to behave as their mode of dress dictates. Those who wear a fress shirt & necktie usually behave in a more business-like fashion. So I couldn't disagree more with your stance on this.

Save for the celebrity or sports world types, please tell me of 3 millionaires who dress like this? I bet Donald Trump wouldn't stand for it. Neither would those who head up other successful, but well-known businesses. There's relaxed attire, then there's ghetto.

Now people ya just shouldn't go judging a book by its cover or a man by how he wears his pants for gosh sake.
Sure ya can pretty well tell a kid with his drawers hanging out and his pants down around his knees ain't worth a damn when it comes to hiring him for a parts runner, stock boy or even bicycle messenger, but there are times when you miss out just throwing people with low hanging pants on the scrap pile. About 10-12 years back I worked with a fellow who had to wear his pants low because he had a terrible case of them inoperable hemogloids. Fellow was a dang good worker, little slow when it came to walking from the time clock to the machine he ran mind you, but once he got there them chips flew.

Now had I just looked at him and chucked him on the scrap pile of life I never would have come to know about the inoperable hemogloids let alone how difficult bowling can be for a man so afflicted.

That is pure ageism. This way of thinking speaks nothing of the person but of the culture they are raised in, as well as the times. You could enforce some sort of uniform policy. But once school's out a young person is going dress as best to assimilate with peers. This is no different from bell bottoms or open neck leisure suits. They were tacky and the elder generations disapproved. I'm also sure during more Puritanical times a girl's bare ankle would have engendered the same reactions.

To 9:47AM ~~ Based on today's Top News Story coming out of GCSD, I'd say it's based upon REALITY. If they dress like punks, are permitted to walk/talk/act like punks, they BECOME punks.
