Stupid things

Things I think are stupid. 

Some of these things you are probably going to think, so what? As I get older things/styles are more ridiculous. Some of you are going to think I am stupid so lets dispense with that.

Pants too long.

I am tired of morons wearing their pants about 4 or 5 inches too long. They look really stupid, like they are wearing their dad’s pants or their big brother’s pants. I look and see all this material gathered or bunched up at the bottom of their pants. When the hell did this become the style? Then my son makes me watch Marine, a movie with John Cena in it and he is wearing what is suppose to be a marine dress uniform and here is all this material at the bottom of his pants. Not going to happen. The pants should just touch the top of the shoes on a military uniform with a slight break in the crease.

Hat on backwards.

I am really sick of this one. Not sure why people are STILL doing this. This goes back to the 90s at least and should no longer be in style if it ever was. Guys you don’t look cool with your hat on backwards, with the bill in the back. The whole idea of the hat and the bill is to shade your eyes from the sun. If you are at a baseball game etc. it should be to show support for your team. Instead the emblem is in the back.

Autographs.

This kind of goes under sports but it is kind of insulting when you want someone’s autograph and they do this scribble that you can’t even begin to read. Usually it is one letter and a scrawl or maybe two letters for first and last name. Either they can’t write or don’t give a damn about you to write legibly so you can read it. What the hell is the point collecting an autograph if you have to tell someone who it is? Then there are people selling this crap. Why would I pay for someone’s signature that can’t be read? Anyone could have signed it. I have several autographs from the days when players could write. I have the likes of Bart Starr, Ray Nitschke, Joe DiMaggio, Joe Namath and a few others and I can read them all. So what the hell happened here. Like I said these athletes or whomever don’t give a damn about you. By the way this scribbling is the easiest signature to forge.

The National Anthem.

There are two parts to this one. First the singers. Sing the damn song the way it was written. It is not suppose to be sung to “make it your own.” This is the National Anthem, it belongs to all of us and not just some lame singer that is probably lip synching. Also it is not to be soulized, countrified, jazzed, or any other form of music. And most important learn the words.

The second part is again about sports. When they play the Anthem you are suppose to stop what you are doing and face the flag. Not looking at the ground or having your eyes closed or shooting baskets or anything but listening and looking at the flag. I see people walking around and other things that can wait that one minute you have to give your attention to what is really important. You can salute or put your hand over your heart. Another thing for athletes, when you take off your hat it is not your hat that goes over your heart, it is your hand and your hat should be held in the other hand or if you hold it in the same it the hat should be on or over your shoulder.

Where is that razor?

This is getting old. Almost every man you see in TV, movies and commercials hasn’t shaved. Real people don’t walk around like that. If there are there aren’t many. This seems to be coming back or never left since the damn 80s and Don Johnson on Miami Vice. Lets get over it. What is really ridiculous is when they put on a suit and tie or worse a tuxedo then have this unshaved face. Some of these people look like derelicts and I know women don’t want to be kissing them with several days of growth. Of course there are exceptions I suppose. Most people in the real world don’t put on a suit and go to a business meeting without shaving.

Along with not shaving the face, they do shave or wax their chests. This one kills me. They look like they have a rubber chest or rubber superhero chest on instead of a man’s chest. Nobody’s chest is totally hairless. And now this has been going on women apparently like it like this? Is this screwed up or what?
