Student Attire

The common student uniform on campus this fall is extremely thin fabric taut pajama bottoms with Uggs on the women, and extremely thin fabric taut pajama bottoms with stoner boots on the men. In both cases, there is way too much visibility of the anatomy underneath the pajama bottoms. I really don’t want to be seeing that shit.

    Well, at least you can’t see anybody’s crotch. I spent a few months in a warm weather location at a school where the girls would wear skirts so short that you’d occasionally get an eyeful of someone’s yoo-hoo. They would also be wearing Uggs.

    The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.

    — Socrates (apocryphal)

    I see no hope for the future of our people if they are dependent on the frivolous youth of today, for certainly all youth are reckless beyond words. When I was a boy, we were taught to be discrete and respectful of elders, but the present youth are exceedingly wise and impatient of restraint.

    — Hesiod, Eighth Century B.C.E.

    The world is passing through troublous times. The young people of
    today think of nothing but themselves. They have no reverence for
    parents or old age. They are impatient of all restraint. They talk as if they knew everything, and what passes for wisdom with us is foolishness with them. As for the girls, they are forward, immodest and unladylike in speech, behavior and dress.”

    — Peter the Hermit 1274 CE (apocryphal)

    I believe what really happens in history is this: the old man is always wrong; and the young people are always wrong about what is wrong with him. The practical form it takes is this: that, while the old man may stand by some stupid custom, the young man always attacks it with some theory that turns out to be equally stupid.

    — G. K. Chesterton

    Seconded. They’re bad enough when seen on skinny folk, but as a not-skinny-minnie gal myself, I don’t know how or for godssake WHY some of these people do this. It does no one any favors. *Shudder*

    Of course, every generation has their own “style”… This one, however, is particularly offensive.

    Why are they wearing Ugg boots in hot weather? Stinky undergrads!

    In other news Baby boomers/Hippys, no wait Gen X, no wait Gen Y are slackers and get offa my lawn.

    …and don’t get me started on them 8 year old millenial generation. Never worked a day in their lives!

    …and get offa my lawn

    This is a common and ridiculous look on the undergrads at my MRU — used to just see this just at the grocery but now has invaded campus as well. I actually saw a woman’s entire butt the other day — thought it was an accident of the light shining through a badly chosen pair of tights, but now I think otherwise.

    Hate the Uggs. Almost as much as the Crocs. OK, maybe it’s a tie. And hate the PJs in class, too—particularly when the PJs have obviously not been washed, oh, since August.

    My personal favorite: the tendency of students to wear Uggs, or other boots, in warm weather, and flip-flops in cold weather. This is something I totally expect my 2 year old to try. 18-22 year olds should know better, for pete’s sake!

    Of course tights look silly on other people, but not on me! I’m way hotter than everyone else, especially in my tights!!! I don’t need pockets, I just keep my money in my boots, which is why I scuffle my feet everywhere I go to be as loud as possible so everyone will know my boots are heaviest with loose change and I am most hot and perfect. In fact, by looking good in tights, I’m doing all of you a great favor by reminding you how old and saggy and droopy your asses are. And, aren’t these big sunglasses awesome? You totally can’t see me rolling my eyes at you when I’m wearing them.

    Some of our interns wear cropped shirts that show their midriff. And fucking christ! they see patients/talk to families like that. Nobody wants to see that — not the fat nurses, not the sick-as-shit patients, not the grieving families. A nurse would get fired for less!

    Well, maybe you’ll reconsider underpants after seeing everyone else’s naughty bits.
