What happened to your neck, Blog Guy?
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?
At first you think, oh, I can get used to this, but after a few hours it bothers you so much you get scissors and try to cut the label off. You stab your jugular with the scissors and have to put on a pressure bandage and hope the spurting blood doesn’t get into your keyboard.
By lunchtime you’re like damn, I need to turn this t-shirt around, but first, a nap! That’s the kind of thing that bothers me on the job.
That’s WAY more than I wanted to know, Blog Guy. I’ll make this simple. Monday through Friday, while you’re blogging from home, what do you wear?
Oh. I see. I’ve got my Lucky Dog Animal Rescue shirt, my plaid boxer shorts and my mismatched green and blue socks. Monday through Friday, that’s it.
That’s very interesting. So you have five identical work outfits, huh?
No, just the one.
