I have a dilema of sorts. Coming up shortly is our school's year 10 formal, and I don't know whether I should go. it costs $45 just to go, then another hundred to hire a suit or whatever. My parents won't pay for it.

I think it's pretty lame, and I can't be bothered spending heaps of money so I can get dressed up like a tosser, listen to stupid b*tches talk about how great they all look in expensive dresses they'll never wear again, then sit at a table with some losers listening to them complain how big a showoff everyone is.

On the other hand, I don't really want to look like a loser for not going, although the more I think about that the weaker that excuse sounds.

Anyway UG, advice?

advise? go. it's a good night. if you don't go you'll be talked about for being an anti-social noob, or at least, that's what happened to one of our friends who didn't go.

Hi. I'm from England so I have no idea what you're talking about. Oh well...

(The guy who mentioned the after-party was onto something).
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

just borrow the suit from someone in your family or get one from an op shop, thats what I did I just used my brothers suit, belt, shoes haha all I needed was a tie which I spent $20 on and then found a nicer better one in an op shop for $2 and took the other back haha and didn't get a limo there or anything, talk about poor.

Still no clue. No schools around here do that. But anyway I go to an all-guys school so that'd be pretty gay. When you're having a "ball" we'll probably be having a house party (way better I think).

Yeah I guess, but I don't think I'll be able to find anything in time unless I go to an actual store, that and I'm short...well not short just not man-size.
#10
Hire the suit from a store for cheap. My year 10 ball was a few weeks ago. Guess what i did? Skipped it and went to the after party! Thats the only way to do it without spending a lot of money.

i went to a skool in liphook in the uk i dunno if u no where that is but they had like a prom thing but i didnt go i think its just dressin up for the nite then goin 2 the after party and gettin realy drunk
#13
Don't bother with a suit. I wasn't going to wear one for our formal but it didn't matter because it was left up to the class to organise it and it never happened.
#14
Yeah I don't want to go to the afterparty though, my grade has too many fagets. And I was gunna hire, it just costs heaps, that's the cost I said above...anyway I guess I'll try and find something
#15
$45? wow ours is $85 this year..

well my advice is that only go if you feel like it... if u think you think youre gonna have a sh.t time then theres no point in going.

personally i'd say you should go.. but im only saying that cos im organising it and thinks its gonna be heaps fun.

jeesus, mines on saturday.

Ours cost at least half a grand, including dancing lessons, suit hire and the limousine. Everyone else who has done it says its really fun. Only fun I've had so far is groping girls at dancing lessons. My partner seemed to object to my pinching of her bum for some reason, her boyfriend doesn't seem to like me much either anymore. Still fun though.

Somebody is spoilt and goes to a rich school.


To TS
I'm in the same situation except mine costs more than yours. I'm not a party person, so it does not interest me in the slightest. I told a few friends and they are already chanting 'dog'. But I have no idea whether to go. Seems like a waste of money.

I don't think I would regret not going. But I would probably regret going. It's only year 10 at the end of the day. I'll go to the year 12 one.

I didn't go to mine it was like £50 or something and it's like why bother? I believe I stayed home and played Final Fantasy because that's how cool I am.

But that was the Year 11 prom.. sounded pretty turd though. They had a disco and a chocolate fountain.

Step 1 - Go to Op Shop
Step 2 - Find $10 suit
Step 3 - Pay the $45 you stingy bastard
Step 4 - Go to your formal, preferably bring a date.
Step 5 - Go to your after party, get drunk and get laid.
Step 6 - Thank UG that we talked you out of being a miserable bastard.
