I could not tell you the last time I put myself into a pair of jorts, also known as jean shorts. However, I feel as though it has been so long.
I can’t even remember if I ever wore cutoff jean shorts with the little white frilly strings hanging out from the bottom, but, I hope I did. I hope that’s something I have experienced.
Well, I did once at the Old Brewery Tavern in Bethlehem about three years ago when an Australian man accidentally ripped off the front of one of my ripped jean pant legs when we were playing darts or something. Can’t quite remember. I then, since it was a nice drunken Saturday, decided to rip from the pocket down on the other leg so that I had a sweet pair of jeans that had no fronts, but backs and a top.
Why a picture of this doesn’t exist, I will never know.
But I do remember losing my wallet that night and some lady calling me and telling me she had it but all the money in it was totally not there when she found it. Whatever, finder’s fee, I guess.
Public Works Director Greg Drake told counil on Mondaythat workers are showing up in cutoff shorts and shirts with torn sleeves torn out or neckline cut out.
Drake said the result is loose fabric that can get caught up in equipment operated by the workers, such as paving machines and wood chippers.
“It’s dangerous,” Drake said.
At Drake’s suggestion, council approved a dress-code policy for borough public works employees. They now must wear long pants and are not permitted to wear loose or torn clothing. SOURCE: The Morning Call
Where there really people coming to work in cut-off jean shorts while they worked around wood chippers?
Is Wilson Borough the set of an Awesome 1980s movie that was never made? It sure sounds like it.
This new dress-code is only sad if Wilson Borough had an inordinate amount of good looking young women who kept showing up to work every day in cut off jean shorts.
But, if that was the case, I’m not sure why they would be complaining. So, I think it was the guys who were probably also wearing work boots.
