Blog Guy, I read a Reuters story about proper attire for the office, and it's kind of confusing. Like whether your boss lets you wear shorts and flip-flops, and stuff like that. Can you tell us about the dress code for your office?
Well, I write my blog from my own home, so that's very different. If my boss were to walk through my door on a surprise visit here I could just shoot him with a taser, no questions asked.
Yikes! I hope he keeps that in mind. But you still must have office standards, right? Little things that are important to you as far as appropriate attire is concerned?
You bet. You know how sometimes you accidentally put a T-shirt on backwards, so the little label tickles your throat?
Remember a couple of years ago, when it was discovered that an executive used his corporate American Express card to pay for $241,000 worth of "services" at a New York-based "gentleman's club" then tried to stiff AmEx on paying the bill?
How might someone explain a $241,000 charge on his or her statement, to his or her boss (or his or her spouse, for that matter)when it gets sent to the home office -- or worse, the home -- at the end of the month?
