No longer required

The boss of a company I volunteer for has just declared that pants are no longer required for company business. I am amused.

Let me give the exact quote:
Per El Cheapo: Again, no decision has been made on the pants issue. We are looking into several options here including one somewhat unpopular solution that involves outsourcing our pants-wearing to China. It is a little known fact that 75% of the pants worn in the United States are actually worn in China. The pants I wear to Origins and Gen Con may in fact be Chinese-worn, which will leave my legs cold but save me up to 15%, including freight.

So for them, every day is No Pants Day.

It would seem so
But considering that the company in question is in Seattle, it's really hard to say what would be abnormal. Them Seattleites is weird. Even the transplanted Seattleites.

No argument here.

I may be weird, but at least I'm wearing pants. After all, nothing better shows my taste than what I wear below my waist.

Re: It would seem so
Well, the last pants I saw you in were tuxedo pants, and that does show taste. However, the pants I most commonly see you in are jeans, which are usually not a fashion statement when worn by men.

Have you asked about kilts? Perhaps he's Scottish (or has just seen Braveheart), and desires to mandate those. Then again, perhaps he's just seen "To Wan Foo, Thanks For Everything", and wants to mandate skirts.

The big question is: Do you have the legs for it. We'll just have to ask Karen.

I think the only LJers who have seen me in a kilt are ralphmelton and indigodove. Halloween in Pittsburgh is sometimes hard on the legs, man.

He's not Scottish. He's weird.

I can't argue about the Water of Life. I can, however, say one thing about blood: I'm O+.

Our Company has no pants.
Our company needs no pants.

PS - I LOVE that Icon.

Re: Our Company has no pants.
You mean that you own a business, or do you mean "gathering of people" when you say "company"?

Yep, it's a nifty icon. It's from a picture taken at a halloween party at caryabend's and psujedi's. I wore my jester's cap, tie-dyed lab coat, and my Men-In-Black tshirt. Flying the freak flag, so to speak. The icon used in my reply to morganminstrel, above, was also taken at the same party.

No pants, okay, but can you wear that awesome hat??
Feb. 28th, 2006 12:24 am (UTC)
I am allowed to wear the awesome hat. There isn't much of a dresscode for a company whose first official demoer tshirt was a 3" pin that said "Official Cheapass Demo Monkey". 8^)

That is so great! [laughing]
