How you dress says a lot about your self-esteem and how you present yourself to the world. It is clear that those who take the time to don nice attire and groom themselves regularly are confident in who they are and they feel like they are worthy.
And then there are others who are a tad too laid back about how they dress. While they may think that it’s their prerogative to dress how they want…others have to look at it. And sometimes, it can spoil a mood.
One liquor store has had enough of bad dressers coming into the store, so they decided to do something about it and it’s causing quite an uproar.
The Oklahoma liquor store was tired of people dressing like slouches, so they put up a sign that says the following…
“Pull your pants up or don’t come in!!! Try to have some decency and respect for others. No one wants to see your underwear.”
The sign was obviously geared toward those who let their pants sag below the belt line, revealing their undergarments. While some are offended by the honest words, the liquor store isn’t apologizing…
“It’s tacky, and it’s gross and we’re adults,” employee Shana Wiessner said. “Pull up your pants.”
But the sign wasn’t just placed in the store to get people to dress better. It addresses valid safety concerns.
“Usually, when people come in with their pants sagging, it’s easier for them to steal bottles,” said Wiessner, who has no problem sending poorly dressed customers elsewhere. “We don’t need their business if they’re not going to be by the rules. We got rules around here, people.”
The photo of the sign has gone viral and has people debating the issue…
“I agree with it,” customer Chad Gilbert said. “I don’t want to see anybody else’s underwear. I realize wearing pants low is a fashion statement for some, but it doesn’t work for me and I find it somewhat offensive.”
“I’m 100% with the store owner! EVERY establishment should enforce this policy!!! Why isn’t the law of Indecent Exposure enforced?!?!?!”
“I like it. Should be a requirement for all stores and restaurants. They use to call this ‘Indecent Exposure’ when I was growing up and it used to be against the law. I wonder what ever happened to that law.”
“Oh, boy do I love this. These brats with their pants down around their knees are prone to retaliation. I hope there is none for this store because every store in America should do the same. It is really brain dead when they wear their pants around their knees and try to run from the police. Don’t you think they would wise up and realize you are not going to get very far before your pants bring you down? Poor little fools.”
And others weren’t on board with it…
“I can see that if it was like a church. There are families there, you might have a problem with that, but this is a liquor store. I’ve seen worse at a liquor store.”
