The rules on what is and is not acceptable for men to wear to work in extremely hot weather MUST be bent just a bit. It is supposed to be anywhere between 95 and 100 degrees today, with a heat index that will surely me much much higher. So far this morning, I have seen women with skimpy, borderline professional attire, and they think just because they bring a sweater from home(in case they get cold or their nipples are high powered) that it is all good. Meanwhile, the men around here have to just suck on it and like it, by wearing either suits or a regular button down shirt with the sleeves rolled up which looks ok, but just isn't comfortable. I occasionally rock the polo shirt with the slacks, but even then I feel guilty and I get funny looks for not necessarily falling in line under the business casual/professional umbrella ella ella ay ay. The only other option is to attempt to come to work with a short sleeve button up shirt and slack, which would leave me looking like a used car/insurance salesman as shown here. That just look terrible. So I propose that men be allowed to wear shorts or maybe even a kilt, when the temperatures are 95 degrees and above. This will level the playing field I believe.

I'm back here in the office, and already my intern is irking me, but not being on time. It also doesn't seem like a hell of a lot of work was accomplished in my absence. And behavior like THIS is why i'm hot...so to speak.

I'm in SC so y'all know it's CRAZY. I've given up wearing pants and every open-toed shoe I own has made it's way to that office. At some point it's just too hot for protocol.
