And what is with the insistence that they wear absolutely no pants? Suddenly leggings are appropriate attire for a public mall. I also feel like I should explain a sort of togs/undies threshold for the short shorts. And skirts that are actually badly disguised belts. Add to that the obsession with having the names of vapid male 'superhotties' embroidered on their clothes and you've got a nightmare my friends.
And boy are some of them rude!! I ask how their day is and nothing. Blank stares. Inside their heads: "OMG. She's a person. And she wants to, like, talk. What do I do??"
Okay, take a breath. I am a sad old git.
But at least I'm a sad old git with standards.
