I wasn’t going to mention this, but then this happened at the shelter.
This might not have happened at a different shelter.
For about a week, this young boy’s been coming here who keeps one hand on his pants at all times. If he didn’t, they’d fall down completely. Normally his drawers are all showing.
I don’t know how many times they asked him to fix his pants, but tonight they finally told him if he doesn’t fix his pants he can’t come in.
If you wear your pants hanging off your butt to put yourself outside the mainstream, congratulations.
You’re not welcome in the mainstream.
You may not be welcome at the homeless shelter, either.
