Guest Post: Chocha Karma

I couldn't resist sharing this anecdote from my friend Ariel. It seems chocha karma does indeed exist:

So I was at the dollar tree getting notebooks and crayons, standing with my mom in the checkout. Up walks this 12-year old girl, wearing no pants. When I say no pants, I mean no pants. No skirt, just a shirt, and her underwear. She's chilling there, looking at sunglasses, and I cant help but notice, she's not wearing pants.

Let me reminds you, it's not a dress. It's a track t-shirt and underwear.

No pants. No shorts. A shirt. Not a dress.

So I think to myself "Hmmm...If I forgot to wear pants, wouldn't I want someone to tell me? Yes I would." So I say to this 12-year-old pantsless girl, "Hey, you aren't wearing pants." And she shrugs. She shrugs! What the heck? My mom got really embarrassed and dragged me from the store. When we got outside I was laughing and she was lecturing me: "You don't just go up to people and tell them they don't have pants on, it's rude!" I don't think it's rude. She didn't have pants on and she didn't care.

So then, at family home evening, we do the lesson, and I give the closing prayer. I sit down, and people disperse and someone leans forward from behind and says "Ummm, your shorts have a hole..." I look a little concerned and she says "No, I mean, a HOLE." Then someone else comes over and says, "Yeah, your whole butt is pretty much showing." I asked how bad it was and they described my underwear.

I looked later, and I could see underwear and butt. It was a huge tear, but it was still hilarious to me. And at least I had pants on in the first place.

I'm with Ariel. There are levels to pantslessness.

Methinks young girls need women to tell them that the chocha look is out.

I guess when stuff like this happens you've just gotta hope you're wearing nice underwear.

Advice!

soooo I just read this and then was on facebook instead of listening to my lecture and stumbled across a photo of my ex-next door neighbour WEARING ONLY A SWEATER. She is now 14, but I remember her as a wee 6 year old and thusly maybe I am more shocked than I should be . She wasn't in public after all...

Do I share this anecdote with her? Or simply take her aside and discuss the pros and cons (are there any?) of wearing pants next time I see her?

ps: good god I can't take this... the captcha is one letter away from being groin

Emma, how public is her Facebook account? It wouldn't be good if she kept posting pantless photos there and when she wants a job, her employers might see it.

About a year and a half ago I was in New York, and my best friend and I went to go see Rent, and for the entirety of Act One, the actress playing Mimi had a hole in the seat of her pants. I'm not sure if she was wearing underpants under there or not, but it could have been a major chochaster if it had been any bigger. We were coming back the next day, and so we agreed that if it was still there, we would catch her at stage door and let her know, but she wasn't on.
Another actress basically had her boobs falling out of her top, and we were sitting right in front of her, and it was super awkward. What a mess.
