Threat Level Jeansnight

Happy first Thursday of March!
This week’s Jeans Day Weekly is sponsored in part by your local HR department…

Remember the episode of The Office called “Casual Friday”?  What, do you live under a rock?!  Get on that.  Anyway, it’s hilarious, but they have to deal with most of the office taking the “casual” part a little too far and end up revoking casual Fridays altogether.   *gasp!*

One online resources says “while it may be okay to dress down in jeans and sneakers, that doesn’t mean you should be sloppy. Remember that this is still a place where business is conducted, and in order to maintain your professionalism at all times, avoid the urge to dress like you’ve just stepped away from your lawnmower.”  I mean, that seems fair.  So let’s examine what The Office didn’t do so well on, in our own attempt to make sure we keep Jeans Days alive at our office.

Holy heck, I love me some lounge wear, but it is best reserved for times when the opportunity for either napping or light sporting activities are higher.  ie. weekends!  😀 😀

While dressing like an “amorphous blob of khaki” is not technically against office dress codes, the shorts and hoodie might be.

Never have I ever envied HR less than in situations like this.  WHAT AND HOW AND WHY?!

Hopefully you are doing better at your office compared to The Office, so good work, you big ol’ amorphous blobs of khaki.
