But that's not important. What is important is the way the man looked. First of all, he was carrying a dog under his arm. It was a white fluffy dog, not exactly a rat dog, but a terrier of some sort. Okay. Next, he was shirtless. Yes, without a shirt. Then, he was wearing shorts that were pulled down almost to his crotch, exposing his Family Guy boxer shorts. Yes, the television show. Completing the ensemble were his long white socks and black slippers.
What, if you'll pardon the vulgarity, the fuck? First of all, does 7-11 no longer have a "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Service" policy? Second, this dude was kind of buff and he was wearing some nice sunglasses, plus the dog looked well-groomed, so he wasn't a crazy bum and the clerk felt bad for him. He also drove off in a ratty but working automobile. I have no idea what was going on, but I was just saddened that this man figured he could go out in public and walk into 7-11 and nobody would bat an eye. Good Lord.
Yes, I'm a snob. I don't care. The slobbification of the country is getting WAY out of hand. WE MUST MAKE A STAND!!!!
