Clue/Question:  She thought her subway ride was this.

Answer:  THE PITS

(Just the other day, the wife and I saw this guy walking into a local restaurant in flip-flops, baggy-ass gym shorts, and a wife-beater tee shirt.  We’re not talking haute cuisine, or anything, just your average bar/grille that has fantastic burgers, a wing night, and it generally caters to local families.  I have no problem with casual dining, but that’s going more than a little beyond the pale.  I wouldn’t even show up at a barbeque dressed like that . . . at my own house.  Do these people have even the slightest idea what the word decorum means?  I can remember when I was a small boy, growing up in the bosom of suburbia.  Whenever my mother would go into the city (downtown), she always put on a nice yet conservative dress, sometimes a hat, AND white gloves!  Boy, have things changed since those days!  I’m sure it was a bit of a hassle getting all dressed up, but everybody was SO much more civil with each other.  I don’t think the term “road rage” even existed back then.  Nowadays our society is overrun with angry slobs, who have this bizarre sense of entitlement.  Just because we’re all unique individuals, it doesn’t make us all special and deserving.   —   Poor girl.  Be well and do good, friends.  And, dress like you give a crap.)   —   YUR

    THE PITS!!! Pretty funny! Puzzle was fairly easy, though I had a little trouble with SHRIMP. As for social “dress codes,” some people are just so oblivious to the world around them that does not include their little bubble of rebellion. Living in a beach community, I expect to see a more casual approach to clothing, but some young kids on the boardwalk just shock me with their outfits. I’ve seen pants on young men below their rear ends, and to top it off they have a belt on! What’s the purpose of a belt when their pants are falling off? Then there are the girls with way too short “shorts” and tops that cover nothing. Final thing, these kids are walking with their PARENTS! Ugh! I was a middle school teacher for 33 years, and yes, I think I’ve seen just about every outfit or hairdo out there, so not too much shocks me anymore…it just disgusts me sometimes, also, YUR!

    Beaches and boardwalks are slightly different animals. People are on vacation. There’s the water, the sun and the sand, etc., etc. You expect to see bathing suits, bare feet, flip flops, and revealing clothing. But, this was a suburban restaurant in a corner strip mall. And, this clown was with an older couple. Presumably his parents. No doubt they were paying, because I don’t think those baggy gym shorts have pockets.

    Nothing really shocks or disgusts me. It’s more a matter of disappointment . . . of where we’ve come to as a society. Self-expression is fine. I prefer it to rigid uniformity. But, I think there is a correlation between today’s *casual* dress and laxity/laziness, which has an impact on both self respect and civility. When you don’t care what you look like, you don’t care what other people think. You just don’t care about others. It’s selfish behavior. It’s pervasive. And, it’s dragging all of us – as a society – down.

    Yes, I agree, and I think a whole lot of it stems from actual depression. My former doctor (May he rest in peace!) would always say a wonderful thing to me when I was all down and out about my physical problems when recovering from surgery. I wasn’t caring about how I looked or even venturing outside for almost a month. I called him complaining one day, and I guess I had worn out his patience, and he said, “Lesley, put on some lipstick and act like a woman!” To this day when I get into slob-don’t-care mode, I do exactly that! Compliments from other people go a long way…they make the person complimenting happy and the person receiving it happy. So caring what you look like is important, like you said! P.S.-Dr. Roth had delivered over 6,000 babies before his sudden death 8 years ago! So he really knew people and how to spread CARING in our society!
