Overheard At Work...

Dry-humored Salesguy (talking to friend at the counter): "You have to understand how the whole 'black clothes' thing is with Goths. Nothing is really all black. You have your 'red blacks' and your 'blue blacks' and you really don't want to mix those two, or you'll look like a twink. Then, (of course,) you have your really 'black blacks' you save for special occasions. If any white lint from the dryer gets on those, a dedicated Goth kid has to burn them. Goths even have their own special laundry detergent now..."

Alston (voice wafting out from office): "What's it called? Dark Tide® Of The Soul?"

Heh.

We used to call people like this (Goth kids) "Pee Eye Bees", for "People in Black" :)

Your post made me think of Molly Ringwold movies.

I'm having "Goth Talk" flashbacks.

I knew a goth chick once, she stank because she didn't wash her clothes. I guess because she didn't want her black clothes to fade. Had to sit next to her in history class. Cute but stinky...

Going Goth is the first step towards becoming a Mime.

Not true, in fact many goths eat mimes if they can find them. They refuse to be likened to a bunch of idiots walking around in pancake makeup and wear black who refuse to whine about how gloomy life is. So they kill and eat them to erase the evidence.

personally, I use Cheer Dark on my (mostly) black clothes. it keeps them black, and I enjoy the oxymoronic name. :)

I was informed by a self proclaimed "goather?" that they dress like that to be "different"
Appartently the defination of different was lost to him , since there was about a dozen just like him with a 50 yd radius
