    It's even being dictated what color our undershirts are supposed to be.
    That's a little extreme, imo.

    I reckon most places I've worked at would have deemed flip flops unsafe. As someone mentioned upthread, they're not exactly protective footwear. I know when I worked at an engineering firm, it was pretty relaxed overall, but there were certain requirements for footwear if out on the shop floor (and lab coats for the clean room obviously) as well as a slightly different set of guidelines for meeting with clients. But it was the kind of place where if you were just sitting down at your desk or in the lunch room, you could kick off your shoes, wear short sleeves or sleeveless (for keeping cool), etc. and just dress it up a bit when you went to conduct actual business.

    I don't want to look at nor smell anyone's stank feet. So I am anti office flip-flops.

    They tell you what colour your underwear is? Unless you're something like a nurse or something that wears a pale coloured uniform...

    Hahaha! I can't believe that someone agreed with me. Obviously some can but the attire on work bbqs made it obvious that they weren't being satorial, shorts with dangly bits hanging out at family picnics... Need I say more?

    You think the enlisteds are not too bright? Really?
    As a rule, I guess officers are smarter, but the Coast Guard enlisted personnel are better educated, on the average, than their counterparts in other branches. They tend to stay at duty stations longer, and can stay at one college to finish a degree I guess.

    But to be honest, Novice, I've met a couple of rockheads already.

    I work in a grocery store bakery. We're also not allowed to drink anything at work unless we're at break. Which is a lot of fun during this heatwave.

    Get here now! I've seen your photos and there is no need to drop 50 lbs. Just get your fine ass on the plane to the city of Brotherly Love (which does not mean that all the men are gay!) and Bitter and I will show you a great time!

    If I'm guessing right about which grocery store....I LOVE their white cake. Delish! (And I'm a tremendous cake snob.)
