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


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.

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.

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.

A business, even the Waffle House, has the right to enforce a dress code. They could have (a) pulled up their pants, or (b) took their business somewhere that allowed baggy pants.

They chose (c) to make a scene, have the cops called on them, and then start sone shiat with the cops.

I'm going to set the over/under on number of fat white men showing plumber's crack kicked out of the same establishment at 0, even though that's probably a commonly represented demographic.


But is it because they are white, or because when told to pull up their pants, they actually DO?

Tough choice to make.  The race card is on the table.  Double down or take your loss?

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.

TNel: In "my" dining hall in the AF you have to be dressed. Here's a good paragraph. "Examples of inappropriate civilian attire include but are not limited to bare feet, exposing of any undergarments, sweaty clothing, tank tops that excessively expose armpits, pajamas and dirty clothing of any type. Any attire that is profane, obscene or could otherwise bring discredit to the integrity or professionalism of the Air Force will not be allowed.


Oh and BTW I have kicked people out for violating those rules, not really kicked but informed that there is a dress code and they will have to leave and then return with proper attire.

lilplatinum: Black socks do look stupid with shorts, but then again shorts look stupid on adults who aren't currently on the beach or at the gym so it shouldn't really be a problem.

I mean, everyone has the right to dress like a child, but if they do so they certainly shouldn't criticize the people in TFA for dressing like idiots as well.


And you care what people look like because?  I dress for myself.  I wear work appropriate clothing at work and when I get home why do I care what "lilplatinum" thinks of how I dress?  Why should anyone care?  There is nothing wrong with khaki shorts, but if you just want to wear your skinny jeans and puffy shirt then go ahead I'm sure the fashion people will like you more.

FloridaFarkTag: White Guilters and EthnoRacists may not like it, but folks don't want to see undies while eating


Any adult willing to eat at a Waffle House at all, let alone at 3:30 in the morning, has a lot bigger things to worry about in their life than other people's undies.

Buttknuckle: devilEther: No doubt gay men have enjoyed this whole trend, but I'm wondering when saggy pants will finally become fashionable with the ladies?

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


Right, anonymous hookups in the stalls at airports, public parks, highway reststops are cool, but saggy pants are just gross.

It's racism, but you've got it backwards. All these "no saggy pants" rules and ordinances are just ways of saying "you can only express yourself in ways we approve of." I'd get pretty belligerent too.


Make sure you get arrested and posted to the main page so I can laugh at you, too.

You don't?  Really, I thought all gay men were just frothing at the mouth to have sex with heteros and were positively jubilant that the sagging jeans allows quicker access to sweet hetero "virgin" cherries.


I've always assumed guys with saggy pants are also gay.

At 3:15 in the morning, which around the time that the clubs close and the clubgoers seek a 24-hour venue the grab a bite before calling it a night, so these places are slammed by a swarm of young partiets who are drunk and revved up.

Seems like a good need for security as any.

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

"While being questioned by cops, Gehring and Johnson were belligerent and used profanities, investigators noted. "


As a white, professional I don't expect not to get arrested once I start belligerently cursing at a cop either.

But if it makes your life easier to assume everything is about race, I guess that's your choice.

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?

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

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.
