Sagging won't go away until some famous rapper starts making fun of how ridiculous it is.  Of course all the famous rappers do it, so.........

TFA comments are off to a good start.

On the other hand, I have no problem with telling anyone displaying ass crack in a food service hose to pull up or get a free pair of bracelets.

Looks like the were arrested for being uppity with a cop...

who cares?!

were they nude?  no?  then shut the fark up because they have clothing on, just not in an arrangement you approve of.  The security guard saw his chance to be the big man on campus and went for it.

I think we should extend criminal charges for people who wear their pants waist at an incorrect position to include grey hairs as well...

It's a sad commentary on the state of your community when the waffle house has an on duty guard.

The fact that some kids decided they were too cool for the rules... well that's so predictable as to be cliche.

fark em.  Tack on indecent exposure and lewd behavior to their charges.  Seek maximum penalty.

Too much rap will prevent your brain from properly developing the ability to seek information.

Normally someone at a Waffle House at 3:15 AM isn't going to be called out on much of anything. You could be so drunk you couldn't speak coherent sentences and they'll still serve you without giving you a second glance.

You want to wear your pants around your knees at home? Fine. Not in my restaurant. You wanna try that and you can go the fark to McDonald's.

Most of these idiots are wearing belts.  Keeps the pants from falling below their knees.  Note the two young gentlemen in the post of the first.

Instead of punishing these young men, we should be congratulating them on their weight loss.

Read it, it says a security guard at a waffle house. How bad must it be for the business to warrant a security guard?

The other was expelled.  Nice reading comprehension subs.

Uh, I don't know too many people who'd approve of someone walking around a dining area with their pants around their knees - even if they're wearing boxers underneath. Furthermore, it might just be that those are the rules of this particular establishment: don't like the rules? Don't patronize the restaurant. Pretty simple.

Perhaps I'm being too harsh and these are two upstanding young men who just...oh wait: "In 2011, Gehring was arrested for burglary and grand larceny."

Ah.

Only the finest Waffle Houses have security guards. They're not just there to keep the rabble out. If you try and take a couple of sugar packets home with you, they'll catch you. They stand in that one corner and survey the whole restaurant primed the whole time on day old Waffle House coffee. They don't even blink during their 8 hour shift.

I put my hat on the chair next to me so I could get some elbow room. The security guard was right there. Telling me that chair blocking wasn't allowed and he could toss me in to the parking lot at any time. I told him I was saving it for a friend who's 4x4 had broken down. The guard looked at me, narrowed his eyes and say "Youse got 5 minutes, son. If'n there aint a buddy there, your order is 'to go'."

I got nervous because there wasn't a buddy or a broken down 4x4. So I acted like my cell phone buzzed and I loudly said "You aint gonna make it to the Waffle House? Dang! Was savin' you a seat and everyting! Well, see you at church on Sunday 'cause good Christians go to church ever'y Sunday."

I nervously ate my eggs and smothers and the guard slipped past me and whispered in my ear "You know where else good Christians go? Now be sure to tip yer waitress. She's my relations." Then he said to the waitress "No refills fer this one."

Still better than getting beaten and sprayed with 'special sauce' by Sheriff Big Mac over at McDonalds

Waffle House is where everyone goes after the bars close. It's not difficult to believe one might need a security guard, especially in a college town.

No doubt gay men have enjoyed this whole trend, but I'm wondering when saggy pants will finally become fashionable with the ladies?
 
2014-05-19 03:42:13 PM  
While being questioned by cops, Gehring and Johnson were belligerent and used profanities, investigators noted. The men "both advised that they were out to have fun and implied they were Wofford students graduating" and "it wasn't their concern that proper decorum was needed in the public domain."

Can someone translate that back into the original South Carolinian?

Looking the classic picture at the top of the thread, those two fine gentlemen are wearing boxers, shorts, and then baggy pants.

So let's ask:  Would it be acceptable to them to wear just the boxers and shorts?  Can you go to Waffle House wearing shorts?

If so, how does adding an additional layer make the outfit somehow more objectionable?   I mean, yeah, it looks stupid as hell, but adding baggy pants does not somehow make it indecent.

1. this is a private place of business...so as long as they are within their rights under the law, they can establish/enforce their own stricter set of rules, including dress code

2. it's waffle house, and they have their rules clearly posted on the wall behind the couter, including a "we reserve the right to refuse service" clause

3. pull your damn pants up!

They're following the prison rules.
One of them might get to follow them in the proper place.

Mostly because you've been listening to racists trying to use homophobia to control people.

Have we now?  That's funny, because I don't know one gay man that finds that attractive.

Normally you wouldn't hear someone saying such a well rounded and pronounced sentence from SC.

Off-topic, but freshly ground and brewed Waffle House coffee is some of the best I've ever tasted. Nutty, aromatic, and delicious. My wife and I were stunned. And we're coffee snob enough to that we travelled to Jamaica to buy coffee, not pot.

It's just immature racism.  They do it to annoy whitey.  Dr. King can be heard shouting from his grave: "No, no, content of your character, content of your character!"

I once saw a older teen type wearing pants like that, the pants fell completely down and he fell off his skateboard.  I still chuckle when i think about it.
