My department has some pretty annoying dress code rules. I mean, I get that some are needed because they don't want their employees showing up to work dressed like fucking hobos but some I could definitely do without.
The major one one being...NO blue jeans.
I know, wtf is up with this rule? Don't they know they're holding back my creative fashionable ways by not allowing me to wear the only item of clothing that I have more of than anything?
Insanity, I tell you.
Yesterday we got a memo stating they had removed two items from the dress code.
- "Casual Day" because it no longer exists.
- The need to wear hosiery with dresses, skirts or skorts. (Yes, they just put hosiery & skorts in one sentence.)
Needless to say, I was pretty happy to see both these moron rules stricken from the dress code cause who the hell even wears pantyhose anymore besides jewel thief's? But one sentence in the entire boring memo stuck out like a ray of sunshine -
"Colored jeans are acceptable at any time provided they are not faded or torn"
Jeans? Colored? Yes! *throws arms up in the air in happiness*
Except...it didn't last too long because I continued to read -
"Blue jeans, knit pants which are form fitting or designed for casual wear are not acceptable"
Wait...what kind of tom foolery is this? Blue jeans are technically colored jeans, they're freakin' blue! But according to my 'still dresses like it's the 1980's' department head, they are not.
I guess I must be color blind cause I could have sworn they were.
