What is up with the thug stuff?

I've been doing some business at the malls lately, not shopping, business. Anyway, I have noticed that so many boys are into dressing like thugs. Then, they have the nerve to stop and ask about a job. Do they seriously think we are going to hire them? Is this becoming the way of the world these days? Why is it? It's very scary to think that these boys are idolizing rap stars and gangster/druggies.

  • I think casualwear is ruining our world.. I know it sounds rediculous but just hink about it... what kind of clothesdo people wear when they feel icky and don't wnat to get dressed... jeans and a hoodie ro something that covers tehm up well eventually people start wearing it all the time and low and behold they feel like crap all the time... maybe if people would get dressed and go out instead of only wearing jeans and tees or jeans and hoodies ALL the time maybe everyone wouldn't be so dman depressed and maybe they would be alittle more motivated and likely to get a job.

  • Many have been doing that, I don't think its anything new, but I agree with you on being surprised thinking they're actually going to get hired looking/acting that way??

  • Society is by nature judgmental and thats not going to change any time soon. That's why when you go on a job interview, you wear dressy clothes and not an outfit you would wear cleaning house. Another thing that bugs me is when girls wear clothes with their stuff all hanging out and then they get mad because people think they're easy. I used to wear sweats everywhere, then I saw some women dressed the same as me and thought to myself "Do I look like that?" Haven't worn them out of the house since!
