Pants hanging off the butt fiasco is it OK to laugh?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (21973 points ) July 3rd, 2010

You are riding a bus and it is about to pull away from the bus stop some young man in those “hang-off-your-butt” droopy pants is trying to run and catch it but his pants falls down around his ankles and he does a face plant and misses the bus anyhow. Do you feel sorry for him, get off the bus quick to go help him, or bust a gut laughing because he tripped his own self up with his choice of dress?

I laugh but quietly. He might be carrying a gun in there.

Bust a gut, serves him right. When I see them dressed like that I feel like pulling them off in public! Never seen anything more ridiculous in all my life!

You have to exercise caution as @worriedguy suggests, so on the outside I’m all cool.
Inside, however, I’m laughing hysterically and calling the guy a fucking fool.

It would be a crime to not laugh;)

I’d help him. I might not agree with his fashion choices, but I don’t like laughing at others’ misfortunes.

I’d help if I could. But on the inside, I’d laugh, of course.

I’d laugh my safely secured pants off.

@Val123 Don’t yopu wish some fashion trends would die like bell bottoms and polyester leisure suits?

@Hypocrisy_Central Bring back bell bottoms!!! Have you noticed that they really are coming back in style? Well, the 70’s bell bottoms anyway. Where the leg is really tight until it flares below the knee. And the pants are too long and the hem drags on the ground! They haven’t figured out to put patches all over their pants yet, tho…..too bad.

Oh, this question is so over, but—

My uncle is a policeman. He loves sagging when it’s by the person he’s chasing down. Has so many stories. Doesn’t even have to run after them, just walks faster than their waddling.
