    Why is it that if you like walk into a shop they automatically assume you're there to cause trouble or parents assume the worst when something happens. Like last night when i was sick....my dad accused me of being on Eccies :eek: and my mum asked me if i was pregnant when all it was, was a bug. I dont think its fair that just cos i'm a certain age i should get treated like a criminal, junkie, slut or anything else bad.

    No!
    My mums paranoid about me having sex with my bf though so shes constantly asking me stuff like that.
    One night, i got drunk (but her and my dad never knew) and i had fell on my ass on the wet grass...when i went home my mum wanted to know why my pants were wet (obviously thinking of something else) ....i had to stand for 20 minutes trying to persuade her it was nothing as i obviously couldn't say i'd fell or she'd know i had been drinking.

    we used to trick the guards...a group of us would go in, look a bit suspect, but not touch anything. the guards would hang about us. then we'd go to leave and then just suddently SPRINT it while shouting "cr4p, hes spotted you"

    they would be too shocked/unsure of what to do and end up standing there.

    The more designer labels you wear, the more chav-like you look, therefore the more suspicion you will incur.

    A lot of shop lifters wear designer lables, Nike, Henri Lloyd etc. Quite often they are fakes as well. Security guards know a profile of people who are likely to shop lift and what they wear. So if you go in with designer trackies you are more likely to be followed. You will also find its much harder to get into pubs and clubs.

    Well...ok my bf and my mates are neds (or chavs) but i can understand them following me then cos my bf seriously looks like a stereotypical ned with his high-raised hat, Peter Storm jacket, Trackies tucked into the sock and the swagger.
    But i dont look particularly like a ned but i still get treated like this on my own or with my best mate who also doesn't look neddish.

    You are judged on who you hang around with. I may be wrong, but I do not think that a dingle one of my friends are a chav and I most certaily do dress like a chav, thus I don't get tailed by security guards.

    Lol in Manchester city centre you can't get in anywhere decent with base balls cap on. In the subrubs most places don't have dress codes. In the city centre everywhere does. A couple of years back you couldn't even get in wetherspoons with trainers on, but they realised that was mistake and they let you in now.

    In the indie clubs/bars the dress code is trainers, jeans and a t-shirt usualy of your favourite bands. Although you can wear what you want as longs as its not trackies.

    teehee even though the guards are only doing their jobs, I do get irritated when they look at me for too long...Dunno if I'd bother to go that far though :rolleyes:
