The Time My Shopping Habits Were Critiqued

This one is actually out of a chassidish school (Bais Someone Else), not a Bais Yaakov. But it’s kinda awesome so I’m posting it anyway. 

I didn’t understand why I was being called to the principal. I’m a good student and follow the rules.

The principal asked me to sit down, and then delicately broached the topic. “Someone” had seen me on 13th Avenue on Sunday. I had been going into a lingerie shop.

So far so good.

But I went in with a friend.

“Shopping for undergarments is not a group activity,” my principal explained. “Tznius means privacy. Some things in life are necessary — undergarments certainly being one of them! — but they are still private. Not something that one does with friends for fun!”
