The Irritating Fad Du Jour Continues
Why, oh why do they do this to themselves? Walking around trying to hold up your pants isn't enough, I guess. The number of black male students on my campus who are wearing "grillz" (it pains me to even write the word), is increasing. Again, when I see a student of another race, ethnicity, or sex wearing... (wince)... grillz... I will let you know ASAP. Until then, so far it is only our black male students. Here is an interesting Fox News article that talks about the obvious fact that... (wretch)... grillz... can ruin a wearer's teeth due to the fact that saliva and bits of previous meals are trapped up against the wearer's teeth all day. Yuk!
I have a student who has defied me on numerous occasions regarding the wearing of his... (oh, the humanity!)... grillz... in my classroom. I have tried calling his mother (there is no father listed on the contact info), but she never returns my phone calls. This means that when I leave for work in about seven hours, I will take a little ziploc baggie with me. When this student walks into class tomorrow morning inevitably wearing his... (shudder)... grillz... I will have him remove them from his mouth and deposit them in said baggie. His mother may then pick them up herself from the office.
Good Day to You, Homie
