I actually watched this guy unbuckle his belt, lower his pants to below his butt cheeks, and re-buckle his belt.
NOW he’s ready to cross those tracks. I waited to see if he could still keep his pants up while he crossed the tracks, and they did manage to stay up while I drove by.
I really did think this must be on the way out by now, but the mid-west is the last place for old trends to disappear and for new ones to take their place. It boggles the mind to imagine what might be next, though.
Seen in Olathe, Kansas, early November, 2013.
