Every sidewalk in San Miguel has these “Eye of the Needle” initiation poles. Perhaps you have walked through one or looked at one and decided it might be too narrow so you stepped around it. But you were being watched and your decision recorded.
The Classic Gang will let no one join if they did not walk through the Eye of the Needle. Anyone who sidesteps the Eye of the Needle has made that split second decision that they are TOO BIG to pass through. No further discussion is needed about TOO BIG. You are relegated to the lower level rung Rug and Tablecloth gangs where you will be able to find something to fit.
