Mr Pinkley: Yesterday was humiliating. The client was casual and hip... and we looked like overdressed, out-of-touch geezers. Today I've reinstated a more relaxed dress code, acknowledging that our clients are simply the more creative, cutting-edge types! Cathy: Except, of course, the ones with whom we have a meeting this morning. Man: Are you the cleaning crew, or do we have the wrong office?

    I’m not sure I’ll do this every day, but for those who can’t see the writing:

    Panel 1: Yesterday was humiliating. The client was casual and hip… and we looked like overdressed, out-of-touch geezers.

    2: Today I’ve reinstated a more relaxed dress code, acknowledging that our clients are simply more creative, cutting-edge types!

    3: Except, of course, the ones with whom we have a meeting this morning.Are you the cleaning crew, or do we have the wrong office?

    I’d much rather be over-dressed than under-dressed any day of the week — no matter what the occasion. And when it comes to working in a professional office setting, I think this is especially important. I’d much rather the casual hipsters think I’m an “out-of-touch geezer” than have the more conservative clients look at me and ask me if I’m part of the cleaning crew. Ouch!

    I always dressed professionally whenever I represented the company I worked for – even if casual dress was the norm in the office. Hmmm – I even dressed professionally at the office when casual dress was the norm. Just the way I was taught I guess. It just did not feel right showing up for work in jeans and a t-shirt.

    Like Mom said, I hope everyone had a really nice day today.
