Fridays, Casual

Your library's "Casual Friday" dress code does not give you the license to wear sweatpants to work.

not even if they include words like 'juicy' or other lovely adjectives? what if glitter is involved?

You would not BELIEVE the number of professional, educated teachers who would wear sloppy sweat pants and sweat shirts to school on our casual Fridays, until our principal finally put her foot down. It was ridiculous.

One of my pet peeves is the professionals that wear pajama pants to work. I do not care if they are a tartan, clouds and rainbows, or your favourite NFL team’s logo – pajama pants at work (or in the general public) are inappropriate.

Not even if they have writing on the butt? Darn.

what if the writing on the butt says "READ" how about then?

Word of caution:

Hiking boots do not "dress up" sweatpants (nor do they make them appropriate for work, the grocery store, or a walk down your slippery driveway to your mailbox).

Also, putting a skirt over sweatpants does not render them invisible.

Who said anything about "casual Fridays"? My academic library colleagues wear sweatpants regardless of season or day-of-the-week.

I wear fleece pants rather than sweat pants. I do draw the line at low-waisted pants. People have to pay to see the finest butt in the known universe.

We have the advantage of not knowing what day it is anyway.

I guess that also applies to tank tops?

I find baseball caps worn all day, every day to be most unprofessional. So what if you're bald?? Save the cap for the game.

What about slippers?

Absolutly. Casual Fridays are days to wear your oldest pair of blue jeans, preferably ones with holes that show things that are barely legal, and flannel shirts over worn t-shirts stained with a)dirt, b)baby gunk, or c)the ever popular 'I don't know what that is.". *headdesk*

what if instead of "juicy" they said "organized"? (most librarians have enough room back there for quite a bit of lettering on the butt of their sweatpants.)

Kevin Musgrove said...

Librarians?

Organised?

Pfah! That'll be why our office looks like the San Fransisco parcel office the day after the earthquake.

Is this blog closed now? No comments since February? What is going on?

we have no dress code, which is great...personally i'm greatful to my pj-pants-every-day-of-the-week colleague because, no matter what i'm wearing, i'm still more dressed up than her!
