Sagging Pants vs Grandma Pat


For Pete's Sake (who is this Pete guy anyway?) I say when I see boys and young men sauntering down the sidewalk or in a store with their pants sagging and their underwear showing!  What are they thinking?  Are they craving attention?  What teen girl in her right mind (notice I qualified that, since many teens seem to be from another planet from the age of 14 to 20) would think twice about a guy with his behind hanging out?  Why...there are even laws against this style in Florida and Michigan!  If other states don't have such laws, they should!

Last week, a young man  I shall call Tyler, since he was the tiler who put our new kitchen floor down, wore his pants in that fashion.  Now don't get me wrong.  He was very good at his job and entirely pleasant in his conversation - and most amazing, he listened to music that didn't burn my ears! 

But...and, that is the problem...this Grandma should not have to be fearful of what she may see if she checks on the progress of the new floor going down.  I don't want to walk through my own house and see some stranger's butt while he works on my new tile floor!  That is just plain rude!


How do you suppose he would feel if I sat at my computer in my undies while he tiled my floor?  Shocking as the thought is, I doubt he'd react at all.  Kids have been so used to advertising using scantily clad women and loose morals for so long, they think it is normal.  Well, I am here to tell you it...is...not...normal!  So, when it comes time to lay the tile in the rest of the rooms, I plan to have on hand, the most garishly ugly suspenders I can find and meet him at the door with them!   Hitch 'em up or come back when you find a pair of jeans that fit. 

And, he is such a nice young man...with kids he takes to and from school...and I think he must have a Grandma somewhere...so, why is he doing this?

  1. Thanks for using your tile job as inspiration for this fun post. This should fall under "do what you want in the privacy of your own home .... not mine"!

  3. Oh- I know- Isn't that just the craziest fashion fad ever? I suppose it too, will pass at some point. When I was young it was mini-skirts and micro minis and I'm sure there were a few shocked grammas then, too....lol...but we wore them anyway until the fashion changed and we felt a bit ridiculous in them.

    I think you SHOULD sit there in your bikini drinking coffee and see what he says! xo Diana

  4. Hi Grace, That Pete guy is my huband and he's a plumbing contractor. You know the reputation plumbers have had forever, when it comes to pants slipping down past what they are supposed to cover! I make him wear coveralls, or I try, I just pray a lot that he is being decent! Our business isn't as busy in this economy as it was in the past but when we were hiring, the first thing all the new guys had to be taught was to pull their pants up! Not only do they show more than any of us really want to see, they trip and who know what they have hidden in all that extra denim...I think this way of wearing pants has gone out of fashion but you know guys only pay attention to fashion when they are in highschool and that is when they decide their look for life. I'm not looking forward to sagging pants on middle aged guys with wrinkled tatoos to boot! At least I know my grandsons will want no part of it!lol! Pam

  5. Such a fun post. I laughed so hard. I remember wearing Hot Pants & boots & remember the comments from the older folks. Well, now I am "the older folks" making those same comments. lolo
    I hope this fad dies off soon. It is odd, but it seems like all these fads die off & come back again. Poor Us.

  6. Your post had me laughing out loud, and now the comments are just as funny. I'm a retired middle school teacher. Once I asked a student to carry something heavy for me. He had to use both hands which meant he had to let go of the pants he was holding up. Guess what happened to his pants? Yup. Down they went. I yelled and covered my eyes. He just laughed because he was wearing gym shorts underneath. Kids!

  7. OMG, this just drives me crazy!! I loved the guy from Atlanta who penned the sound "Pants on the Ground". It was so funny. Can't wait to see the new kitchen. Hugs, Ginger
