It’s an epidemic. The latest outbreak is coming out of the Houston, TX area, at Woodlands High School.
The emailer who notified us provides some pretty solid commentary — as he typed this up instead of doing his physics homework — so we’ll let him take it from here.
I am a high school student at The Woodlands High School just north of Houston. I am wrapping up my junior year and just received my yearbook when I notice something, quite frankly shocking.
There is a section talking about styles that are in and in my HIGH SCHOOL YEAR BOOK EVIDENTLY PEOPLE ARE FRATTY. I hear people call one another “geeds” and “pledge” despite the fact that the are currently GDIs and in fact aspire to pledge. It is an epidemic on the rise. While I am admitting in the recent months I may have displayed some attributes of a HSFS and a try hard (given that I caught myself wearing a vineyard vines vest in some boat shoes and not owning a pair of shorts that are longer that mid quad) but this is too much.
It’s gotten to the point where a yearbook states a student is “fratty.” Also he’s wearing a watch from JC Penny and a shirt from Marshall’s, how is that “fratty”? Regardless as I angrily type this on my iPhone instead doing physics I just thought who else but the writers and editors of TFM would enjoy that photo of the ultimate high school frat star.
Sincerely, ******* ******
