Hey @Hollisterco do a mother a fav & make some jeans that don't look like my kids ass is hanging out. At $50/pr u can afford the material!
I would like to say that we've overcome the 'pull up your pants' portion of the teen years, but apparently that is just not so.
Today was a dress-down day at the Kid's school, otherwise known as a holy day for the private school sect. Jeans can be worn with impunity and ties are not required. Sounds easy right?
If you thought that, you would be WRONG!
For the nominal $2.00 fee it costs to not wear the uniform, you too can have the right to argue with your kid in the morning before school as to how much of his 'cool-boxers' (yes, he actually said that) he can show.
If you're one of my regular readers, you know right were this is going...
Me: Pull up your pants.
Kid: If I pull them up anymore I'm going to get crotch rot or something.
Me: What? That's not even possible. Whatever, I don't want a phone call from school because someone can see your ass.
Kid: But I'm wearing my cool-boxers. (See, it actually happened.)
Me: Get in the car. I better not get a phone call.
Kid (getting in the car): Hey, the windshield wiper just sprayed water in my face.
Me: Yeah, well if you pulled up your pants that wouldn't happen.
Kid: WHAT are you talking about?!
Me: From now on my only response, no matter the question, is going to be 'Pull up your pants.'
Me: Example: What? Your hungry? Well, you wouldn't be if you pulled up your pants. Basically like that.
Kid: You're nuts.
Me: I wouldn't be if you pulled up your pants.
Playground tactics, I know, but really he's left me no choice. That and it really simplifies our conversations.
