How about this; Free Labor!

I guess this is a form of indetured servitude for getting a Carolina Skiff. He has to wax my boat whenever I ask.

Obviously not! I am always after him about that.

I think a few more people should rag on him for it so I can show this thread to him and say "Look, its not just me that thinks you look like an idiot"

Congrats! Low pants or not - looks like you have a great fishing buddy there! Mine has grown up, married and is now becoming a Naval Aviator - I sure miss him being with me as we head out to get the decks bloody!

I am not a teenager anymore and married and grown. That is still how I earn my rides. I guess until I have the $$ thats how it will be. Soak it up for all it's worth. I know I tell my wife all the time how she better hope we have boys because I don't want to end up having my daughter scrub the boat for me.

FM,

The funny part is I have a 10 year old daughter. When we come in she starts to beg "can I wash the boat?". All she asks is that I fill the bucket and put it in the boat for her, she does the rest.

I am screwed when they move out!

Tell him I said that I hope he likes minimum wage because if you present yourself as an idiot you'll be paid accordingly!

In my practice I teach hiring techniques to corporations, if he's competing for a job position, he just lost it getting out of the car.

But it's great to see him working for his skiff, sounds like he's developing a work ethic, now go give him a weggie.

I hear you Tom. I am in software sales so I know what first impressions mean. Of course when I was his age (16) I had long hair and worked for minimum wage. It will probably dawn on him as well; wear a belt get more money..... hmmmmm.

If you want him to keep his pants up. Just tell him about the orientation of "sagging" pants

It started in prison. The inmates sag to show off there azz cleavage. It is used to turn on the other inmates. Unfortunately the habit made its way out of the prisons.

Tell him you got some of that new life insurance. They give you the money now and when you die, he has to pay it back!

You'll find him taking really good care of you!

You guys are pretty old, and I'm just a hair too old to wear my pants like that. But both my wife's younger brother and my younger brother wear their pants like that all the time. I'm an engineer and most of the guys I work with under 30 wear their pants like that outside of work.

beber,

My high school days were the early 80's, I'm 42, but let me tell you if your underwear showed then... you got a weggie! We all knew what was coming to us and it was fair game. That was a rule when I was a teenager and the rule still applies today in my house.

"You guys are pretty old". I always say:

You can only be young once, but you can be immature forever!

Tom

I'd just like to know what your secret is that enables you to get a teenager to help do ANYTHING! Whatever your secret may be, please spread it around.

Guys, those are swimmers for God's sake.

Stop being such old farts, and let the young guy live whatever way he wants.

Jaysus, you guys would have been telling Elvis to stop with the pelvis!

That just means your younger brothers and your colleagues all look like idiots. White guys trying to look "urban", now that's funny stuff.

My twin boys will be 13 this Fall, from my observation it appears as though the boxers showing fad has played itself out among teenage boys in suburban Boston.
