Pull Your Damn Pants Up

Pants on the Ground

The ‘pants on the ground’ thing is getting old people! Enough already. I just hate it, and I swear every season they just keep getting lower. How did this even become a fashion thing? It just looks so ridiculous, kids walking along the street like they’ve shit themselves!  Don’t they know how stupid they look? I can’t help it, I laugh out loud every time. Even Miss Gremlin and Grand Master D point and laugh now. Of course this is probably not the wisest idea, lest we get shot cos who knows if they’ve got a gun tucked in their pants or not, we are in Harlem after all but we can’t help it.

I saw last week that Atlantic City has made it illegal on the boardwalk to wear your pants low! There have been other places that have also banned it. ABOUT TIME people. This just has to stop. I can’t wait until the trend changes.

How uncomfortable must they be honestly? Having to walk around all day holding your crotch so your pants don’t fall down. All to create an image. *eyeroll*
In the dead of freezing winter, you know those days, where you must blink fast or your eyeballs freeze? yeah that. So on one of those days last year I was walking on our block and a teen was walking just in front of me…I can only imagine how breezy his junk was feeling with his pants around his thighs. As I followed him, this guy who was waddling along the way they do, checked around, looking for his peeps and when he realised the coast was clear, those nice heavy, warm denims he was wearing, were hitched right up to his waist. I followed him as far as my door with a knowing smile, thinking how ridiculous he was but at least his brain did see reason and made him protect his boys in spite of his fashion nonsense.

Let me mention hygiene for a second. If you’re on a crowded train or bus and a guy is standing in front of you with his belt on his thighs, then you know that there’s nothing between his package and your face but a thin layer of fabric. That’s just GROSS!  What if the convenience hole gapes? Why do they think this is ok? Subjecting us to their business. Now I’m not scared of what’s under there, hey I’ve got kids, I’ve seen a penis or two but sitting on a train with my 9 yo daughter with some hood’s dick in our faces… that’s just not cool! I’d like to choose my own up close and personals thanks!

A few years ago now, when I still had to trek to school everyday to deliver and retrieve the children, we were walking home behind some teens with their pants ‘on the ground’ as its called and this one fellow had the great misfortune of not managing with the old cottonelle, if you now what I mean. So there we were walking home behind this kid with his pants around his thighs, his light heather grey underoos were showing and he had a great big brown skid mark all the way up the crack of his arse! Well, the kids thought it was the funniest thing they’ve ever seen! We just couldn’t stop laughing and there was plenty of eewwwwing and pointing too! OMG… if you’re gonna expose your duds then at least wipe until you’re clean!

Just eeewww people.

  1. Just snort-laughed. And really, what’s with the skinny-legged pants on the ground? I’m looking at YOU Usher & Justin Bieber! Did you see last week on The Voice where Usher admitted that his pants rip every day? Um, maybe because they are reedonkulus and were never intended to cover your knees with your crotch.

    Don’t get me wrong. I’d tap that in a microsecond. But the pants would have to come all the way off first.

  2. hahahahahahaha uh maw GAWD hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha *breathe* hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha this is SO FUNNY! I love funny posts, but I REALLY LOVE when i see the TITLE and just start laughing. Well done! Totally sharing this.
    I was trying to find a cartoon I saw on Facebook about the pants, can’t remember WHO drew it or who shared it, but it was 3 or 4 pictures, dated by year, the first one the pants were mid-hip, the 2nd one the pants were really LOW hip, the 3rd they were at the KNEES and the 4th picture? The kid was pulling his pants BEHIND HIM IN A WAGON. I literally L’ed OL. WIsh I could find it!
    Thanks for coming by the blog hop today. Oh, this is still cracking me up! I’m totally showing this to my teenager. (Who currrently wears his pants at MID-HIP, never saw more than an inch of underwear, I know STILL!)

  3. I totally agree, pant on the ground to me is trashy looking. Plus they have to hold them up while walking. Thank goodness my kids haven’t gone through this phase because this mama would be pulling their pants up.

  4. OMG I am so with you on this!! I absolutely despise it when I see fellows dressed like this! You know where this so-called fashion statement originated from? PRISON!! The inmates were given ill-fitting pants, and so they walked around with the baggy pants down their thighs. Some genius decided to copy it and it became a fashioned trend first among thugs and then the rest of the teens who thought they’d look “tough” if they wore their pants low. I just think they look like idiots. When the Hubs and I drive past a teen like this, my hubs rolls down the window and yells, “PULL YOUR DAMN PANTS UP!!!”

  5. I’m agree!! Who wants to walk around like a penguin just to hold their pants up. Thanks for linking up with the Tattler Thursday Blog Hop. (ImNoHumdrum-Mum: Co-Hostess.)

  6. Ha! This definitely made me giggle out loud! There really is something hilarious about these people walking around trying to hold their pants up! We went bowling once and the dude in the next lane kept tripping every time he went to throw the ball because his pants were so low and they kept falling lower because he couldn’t hold them up and throw the bowling ball at the same time. Very comical 🙂

  7. OMG! GROSS! Didn’t his momma teach him how to wipe his own ass? Shame on him. I hope THAT isn’t a new fashion statement. *bleck*

    We saw one of these fashion morons at Burger King here in our little town. LOTS of people were staring at him til he felt self conscience and pulled them up. 😉

  8. LOL!!! And my parents thought I dressed strange in the 80s! I still think parachute pants are awesome!! Anyway… as a parent, I will not let my child go out with their pants hanging down. WTH?!? Thanks for sharing with us @ My Favorite Posts SHOW OFF Weekend Blog Party 🙂


  9. OMG! This is absolutely the most amazing post! Absolutely love, love, love it! My oldest was told one time, if I saw his pants like that, ever, I would pull them up so far that he wouldn’t sit for several weeks! LOL! He never did! He used to laugh at me when I would talk about the dirty diaper syndrome…when looking at them from behind, it really looks like they have a dirty saggy one on, and apparently that would indeed be the case for Mr Skids! LOL! Have a great one!
