Working life

Grown women should be able to wear whatever they choose to work, provided they are not breaking any laws.

There are few enough perks working in an office as it is, without this sort of nonsensical ruling.

Inappropriate fishnets always make my day on those rather rare occasions when they hove into view.

My limited experience is that like much like smokers (another group unfairly coerced by their employers), the women I know who wear fishnets to work are orders of magnitude more fun to hang around with.

What do others think?

More appropriate work clothes: knickers and a thong.

And I'd say "I'll be back in five minutes" except that the ankles in the photo are a wee bit heavy.

in the song "Built for Speed", viz,

When I reach that final destination
I will drive your car and leave you compensation
With a little reeling and a lot of rockin'
You're my hot rod mama in your fish net stockings
You're a hot rocking mama and you're really built for speed, You're built for speed.

Buy my books, dammit!

It's political correctness gone mad!
