As Hensley continued to explain the shorts ban, though, his words then took an unexpected turn. “I know boys, you’re thinking, ‘I don’t understand why, it’s not fair, athletic shorts go past your knees. I didn’t make the rules. Well, I kinda did. But that’s the rules.”
After revealing the extent of the punishment for those who violated the dress code, Hensley continued, “So, just don’t wear them. And if you really want someone to blame, blame the girls. Because they pretty much ruin everything.” The vice-principal didn’t stop there, though.
“They ruined the dress code,” Hensley said. “They ruined… well, ask Adam. Look at Eve. That’s really all you really gotta get to, okay. You can really go back to the beginning of time,” he added. “So, it’ll be like that the rest of your life. Get used to it. Keep your mouth shut, suck it up [and] follow the rules.”
