#17 Tucked in Shirt, No Belt

“Come on everyone, we’re going to be late! Let’s get this show on the road!” Dad yells as you stumble up the stairs. Midway up the stairwell, you look up and witness Dad’s outfit. You’ve seen it a thousand times, and each time it makes you shake your head. The tucked in shirt and no belt.

Younger guys wear belts to hold their pants up as well as making a statement about status with their belt buckle. Girls wear belts for fashion and to cover up that one stain that just won’t come out. Dad on the other hand won’t wear a belt.

What’s the point? His belly hangs out enough to hold the pants up. It’s an added barrier for when Dad has to go to the bathroom for the third time in the past hour. Belts really don’t serve a purpose for Dad. Without the belt, Dad has more mobility. He can also stick his thumbs forcefully into the belt loops.

You can accept no belt, but why must the shirt be tucked in order to reveal the lack of a belt. Dad’s no slob here. An untucked shirt is simply sloppy and unprofessional. Dad sleeps with tucked in pajamas. You really think Dad would go out in public with an untucked shirt? Just for thinking that, Dad is adding his cell phone clip holder to his pants and wearing his Bluetooth when he picks you up from school. You’re welcome.
