    Hah! This reminded me of a woman I used to work with, at a financial firm no less, who came to work one day wearing one of those black see-through chiffon (or something like it) t-shirt type of deal over a black satin bra. She was 55. She did have a really good figure, but come on. 55. During the day. In an office. Sheesh. She complained constantly about being sexually harassed (she wasn't being harrassed).

    Ok guys! I have to defend the dresses over jeans here. There are pretty much not any other options for us tall girls with ultra long torsos. Especially if you refuse to show belly, and don't wanna buy everything in the WalMart plus sized tent-looking department. I just wear very short dresses over my pants..

The majority were dressing MUCH too young for their age, had overtanned skin, and were wearing those tops with spaghetti straps, low - very low, necklines, hip hugger jeans. Their breasts were all out there on display and I swear most of them looked ridiculous. I was wearing a sweater (this is Michigan and it was snowing outside) and corduroy slacks. I felt like I had walked into a club for swingers by the looks of those people. Take me back to the conservative dress of years gone by.
    I am so with you on this. Especially in the kids clothes department. I have a hard time finding my daughter clothes that aren't low rise and bare midriff. Hello, she is 8 and doesn't need to be dressing like a sleaze. Let them be kids for a while.

    Yeah, I find that really odd with the kids clothes. And it makes me look like the bad guy because I won't let her dress that way. Punky, hippie, whatever bring it on. Stripper on her day off, I don't think so.

Thank God she didn't feel compelled to make a cell phone call, too.
    As a paramedic, this disgusts me!!

    She could be sued by him, and he could win. That's horrible patient care. We're not even allowed to have anything like that with us when we're on duty... let alone on a call.

    Im SICK of girls wearing flip flops in the winter!!! Stop being lazy and put on some shoes!

    I am uber tall and have a hard time but I just go to men's or buy just my size tees. They fit and are not tents!!!!!!
    I might as well work. I'm in a bad mood anyway.

    This is one of the reasons I am glad I don't have a daughter. I first noticed it when McDonalds had a doll in their happy meal called a BRATZ doll. It looked to me like a miniature hooker doll. The next thing I noticed were young girls dressing like those dolls. It is difficult to teach our sons that no means no, when the signals many of the girls are sending scream YES!YES!YES!

    I think the fad I am most tired of is hugely oversize shirts that hang down to the knees and the oversize pants that hang down to the knees.. yep my teenage son is a victim They "almost" passed a law here in Virginia to ban those droopy baggy pants.. as a parent, I was so for it. Unfortunately, it didn't happen. I will admit to allowing my son to dress like that though, but he isn't allowed to "sag" at home, with me in public, or at my mother's house. I figure that if I completely stop him from dressing how he wants, then he will be more inclined to do it.

    The other thing I wish would go away are those silly plastic bracelets that come in all different colors.. I just don't get it?
