The low-rider, hip-hugging blue jeans trend has gone far enough. Why must I be subjected to large quantities of gratuitous ass crack in public places?

Sarah and I were at the Ani DiFranco concert last night. We generally like to sit on the aisle so that we can come and go as we please. This means standing up periodically to let those seated farther down the row of seats pass, but there are tradeoffs for everything in life so standing up periodically doesn’t bother me. Well, as we were sitting on the aisle, so were the people sitting in front of us. And, if we had to stand up reasonably often, so did the people in front of us.

Normally, that wouldn’t bother me in the least. Like I said, there is a price to be paid for sitting on the aisle. However, one of the girls in front of us was in no way slender and she was wearing the ever-so-fashionable hip-hugging, low-rider jeans with a too-short shirt. Everytime this wonderful person stood up to let people pass, my field of view was filled with gratuitous ass crack as her jeans were riding too low and the back of her shirt was riding too high.

Yikes! I paid over $35 to listen to Ani sing and play guitar, not to see some random girl’s pasty white, flabby, unattractive, exposed posterior. Where is the justice here?

If I walked around with the top half of butt crack hanging out for all the world to see, wouldn’t people be more than a bit offended?

So, if you find yourself wearing hip-hugger, low-rider jeans, experiment at home with a friend or significant other before wearing the jeans out in public. If you’re flashing tail bone and the Grand Butt Cheek Canyon when you stand up, those jeans are not you. If you insist on wearing such jeans, please, please, please, wear a shirt long enough to be tucked in for everyone else’s sake.google_ad_client = “pub-9050559929403028”;google_ad_width = 728;google_ad_height = 90;google_ad_format = “728x90_as”;google_ad_type = “text”;google_ad_channel =”“;google_color_border = [“FDFFCA”,”CC99CC”];google_color_bg = [“FDFFCA”,”E7C6E8”];google_color_link = [“0000CC”,”000000”];google_color_url = [“008000”,”00008B”];google_color_text = [“000000”,”663366”];
