Whew, I bet you have a tough time driving through forested areas and
residential neighborhoods where there are lawns! I guess I wouldn't want
to work for a person/company if the color of my clothes is perceived to
be a qualification. (I look TERRIBLE in gray, so I'd rather risk the
position than show up looking like I have a terminal illness.)
I would hope that most people at least have a "strike zone" rather than
hard-and-fast rules. Mine is clean, neat, conservative (meaning not too
tight, loose, cut up to here or down to there), and respectful (no
potentially offensive t-shirts).
Anyone want to push for legislation? "...race, color, religion, age, sex,
national origin ... or fashion sense."
