    Sweats are more addictive than you think.

    Anyone else do other things while on Zoom meetings? I’ve knitted, kneaded bread dough, and started making a cheesecake during meetings. I’ve seen people play with their dogs and heard their children in the background. Of course, the obligatory kitty bums have to make an appearance because internet.

    My Employer has gone with MS Teams instead of Zoom. No matter to me since I am Old School (No Mobile Phone, no Webcam).

    I only wear my sweats when I’m in bed and goofing off on my days-off. Jeans or dress slacks are for when I’m going out in public.

    There was a recent news story about a plastic surgeon working on a patient while using Zoom to attend traffic court. Not kidding.

    Since when have you needed a pandemic to make sweats acceptable for going out in public? Since when is adhering to some unwritten dress code for dignity more important than being comfortable?

    Stage 4: Sweats being mandatory.

    By the way: How come the one guy not bald keeps his hair medium short? Is he violating the rules and visits a hairdresser? I’d expect that stage 4 includes mullets as acceptable hairdo with that attire in public (again)…

    I have 3 pairs of sweats that I love except for one detail – no pockets! So I don’t generally wear them outside of the house. Seriously, no pockets????

    Must have pockets. Where else does someone put a phone and keys. Hate the tiny pockets that don’t hold anything and stuff falls out when you sit down.

    Basic rule for Men #17: If you drop a sock on the floor and it breaks, it is past time to do your laundry (and buy one pair of replacement socks). Basic Rule 17(a): This also applies to briefs, sweats, tee shirts, and any other garment that can stand up unsupported by itself. (And by the way, it might also explain why you have no social life.)

    Sweats are only for those really cold days or nights around my house. Since I live in a warm climate, summer ( right now ) means tank tops, sports shorts, and flip-flops. Venturing out has become a PIA because it requires putting on jeans or cargo shorts, a shirt or tee-shirt, and sneakers or loafers.

    I don’t give a damn what I look like on Zoom.- I’m retired!
