questions of the day

1) how strict/stupid can people really get? about this much.

2) from the above-linked article:

"Under the policy, students are required to wear collared or polo shirts that must be tucked in. The shirts must be in a solid color of white, gray, green, pink or khaki. The shirts must be 3 inches below the waist, which is school board policy." (emphasis mine).
so... how exactly are you supposed to tell whether or not a shirt is 3 inches below the waist if it's tucked in? do they make students untuck their shirts to prove the length, then tuck it back in? do they have a series of stretches that would cause any shirt that did not meet the required length to come untucked? or am i just missing something here?
