A slattery also refuses to use CD's, declaring that tapes are the only true medium of playing music. They generally enjoy old-school rap as well, but to truly make a slattery happy you must play House of Pain's hit "Jump Around". They often carry with them a boombox, or wish that they were.
Either you are or you aren't a slattery, dressing in the style but using CD's alone will equate you to a poser.
A slattery is the epitome of cool. (since they live in the generation that invented that word)
Person 2: Yeah! Well yesterday I saw her walking around with her boombox, playing Jump Around!
Person 3: SO slattery.
They can be percieved as cool in one scenario, which usually leads them to be invited to parties; whereupon they are suddenly discovered to be lame.
The strangest phenomenon concerning these people is that once their position has been ascertained at the parties as 'lame', they can quickly revert back to coolness as soon as the following day.
"Well, she seemed cool at the movies the other day; but last night she turned out to be a slattery."
"Come on, don't embarrass me! Everyone will think you're just a slattery."
