    Wow, Cathy. You don’t need to wear sweatpants or eat all day. Nobody has made you do anything.
    And you are an executive?!??!? Wow, I’m shocked. :-)

    Good morning, nutty Cathy family! Stay safe with all of these storms!

    Since when are sweat pants considered causal work wear? I thought that meant khakis and such.

    I know I’ve been out of the workforce for 11 years now but I worked in a variety of offices for several years before then and at no point were we ever allowed to wear sweatsuits to work for any reason. And “dress-down Fridays”? There was no such thing. Everyone that worked in those offices were required to dress nicely every single day the business was open so that customers/clients would know they were dealing with serious professionals at ALL times.


    Hi, rgcviper!


    Hello and Happy Wednesday to all my nutty “Cathy” friends! Hope everyone’s been having a nice week so far.

    When I worked in a Risk Management office many, many years ago, our insurance department was constantly wooed by doctors and groups of doctors who wanted our business. This meant reps dropping off boxes of cookies, pastries, candies, and big buckets of various popcorn at the holidays and sometimes just sent as a token of their appreciation. I still remember when one of our newer claims examiners, a sweet young woman just engaged to be married a few months after being hired, came in to work one morning and wailed to the rest of us, “I can’t believe it! I’ve gained TEN pounds since I started working here a year ago!” It doesn’t taking pigging out on goodies every day, but just that few extra hundred calories a week here and there that will cause the pounds to creep up on you until you’re faced with the startling realization that you have to slip a rubberband through the buttonhole and around the skirt button in order to wear it because it’s “suddenly” become too snug! It works the same way when you’re not working too. Voice of experience. lol

    Hi Cathyites!! Cathy was svelt?!!? When??

    My students could never believe that when I started working (back before the wheel) women were not allowed to wear pants to work.

    Re the weather — yesterday I never made it out from in front of my house — backed the car out of the driveway and it just sat on top of the wet ice and refused to move at all. I couldn’t get out because I wouldn’t have been able to stand up. I finally got it to rock just enough to slide back into the driveway. Never made it to ballet. Then my husband came home with a gravel truck so I could get out and when I came home I tried to back the car into the driveway, forgot about the useless chimney that juts out from the house and hit it — only going about 5 mph, but some damage nevertheless — and the car is only 4 mos old. Not a good day. Good news — at least he 8 inch thick block of wet ice finally melted (after 2 days in the 50s).

    I think this one just might go BEYOND [eye-roll] territory.

    I think we’re getting close to needing a [face-palm].

    Just sayin’.
