The Dress Code Debacle

This past weekend I took some time to go through the recent kid related emails that were piling up in my inbox. One of the items that I had been keeping on the back burner was the high school newsletter. These things drive me a little batty, but I do recognize that someone goes through the time intensive work to put it together, so I decided to check it out.

There was a lot of riff-
raff to scan through. A few sections of interest. And THEN I got to the real meat of the newsletter - the "Dress Code for Special Events". The Homecoming dance is this weekend, and since it's been a few years since I was in high school myself, I thought it wouldn't hurt to give it a quick glance. I mean, really, how much different could things be?

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

The following were some of the high points:
  • Camisole backs (lace-up) are okay.
  • Boys must wear standard formal wear, which includes dark business suits and appropriate footwear.
  • No flip flops, tennis shoes, or athletic shoes will be allowed.
  • Proper and formal grooming is expected. No unusual hairdos or hair color.
  • Tattoos must be covered.
  • No rave party accessories, such as flow sticks, are allowed.
  • No costumes allowed.
And finally, my VERY favorite.... Drum roll please!
  • Underwear must be worn.
What the ****?!? The scariest part is that someone's child, uh-hum "young adult", actually went commando, or sans other normally necessary unmentionables for this item to even BE on the radar. Ugh.

Can I interest you in a lesson on STD's? Anyone... Anyone...

That is quite a list. Having gone to a private school I remember that the big concern was making sure the dress was long enough and high enough. Comando! Yikes! You have a new follower from the Tuesday hop! Great blog! Come visit Mama's Little Chick.
