A TEENAGER thinks he looks the business despite sporting the kind of outfit his mum would expect her own father to wear to do the garden.
When Josh Hudson went off to meet friends for a bubble tea wearing Crocs and white socks, a T-shirt tucked into his joggers and carrying his valuables in a bum bag, mum Sarah confirmed she felt embarrassed on his behalf.
Sarah said: “How did it become cool to go out dressed like a pensioner spending the weekend at their static caravan? When I was Josh’s age, none of the lads would tuck their school shirt in unless a teacher told them to, never mind a T-shirt.
“And he’s got a mullet. On his way out he stopped at the mirror to lovingly fluff out the ‘party at the back’. I asked him if it’s ironic and he laughed and said ‘No cap, ma’, which I think is Gen Z slang but really I’m none the wiser.
“His girlfriend turned up the other day wearing pleated wide-leg jeans and a vintage Sweater Shop jumper. I’d think they purposely dressed like this to give me horrible flashbacks to my youth if they weren’t so pathologically uninterested in me.”
When approached for comment, Josh rolled his eyes and slouched off with his Crocs making farting noises.
