The TeddyJ powers that be are making optimistic plans to have us all back in the office in April. I think it's April. I didn't pay close attention because I will not be going back in the office, thank you, no. I'll change over to home-based; the pay is the same.
For those going in they are making one remarkable adjustment, the office dress code is dropping to business casual. (This after I got myself down to five suits that fit. Those five suits no longer fit, but by April they could.)
You ask why I care about the dress code if I am not going in to the office. Well: there is now a Zoom dress code for people working off-site. Two rules:
- no T-shirts
- no denim shirts
So, goodbye to 20% of my wardrobe right there. My denim shirt (the one I bought to allow for bra-free days) is now struck from the roll, bra or not.
I put it on immediately after I read the email. Perhaps I can wear it out at the seams by April. And I fully intend to protest by wearing nothing but underwear downstairs.
(I initially read downstairs as literal, and wanted to write a caution re: reaching out the front door to collect the mail in that garb, but then realized what you meant, and that is hilarious but laptops sometimes slip, so... maybe hilariously patterned hawaiian shorts every day? Or something...)

KC - I do have a tiara if I want to be sarcastically fancy.

Oh, good. Bet there's nothing in the dress code about tiaras... yet. ;-)
