I can't believe I still see guys sagging their pants. I remember when I first saw that trend when I was in junior high. That was in 1993. Like the other retarded trends of that time, I thought it had died out when everyone realized how stupid they looked.
Yet today, at Biola and around Southern California, I still see guys doing it! There is a guy on the lacrosse team who sags his workout pants! Why hasn't anyone told these guys that everyone else automatically lowers their opinion of them when they see this?
I remember visiting my friend Sean at Loyola Marymount for a couple days. I went to some of his classes with him because I didn't want to hang out in his room where his weird-and-kind-of-creepy suite-mate might stumble in and ask if I had any pot. One class was Calculus. Sitting in front of me, in the class, were two jabronies who I swear we went to high school with. And what did I get to stare at all class? Their underwear, because the tops of their pants were located under their thighs. You're in college! Stop it!!
I realize that there will always be fashion trends that I think are stupid at all times throughout my life that are matters of personal taste, but the sagging thing, besides looking stupid, actually impedes your movement. You have to walk sort of bow-legged all the time to try and keep them from falling past the magical "sag line," and you're also constantly tugging them up to keep them at this line. Ever seen a sagger run? Hilarious. I actually remember a news article from a while back where some dumb kid got caught by the cops really easily after committing a crime because his pants fell down and he tripped. That's a very satisfying bit of Natural Selection going on there.
We need some girls to tell these guys that they doofy. All it takes is one derisive laugh from a girl and one of these guys will change.
