It was 92 degrees when I went into work today. I am required to wear black or khaki dress pants to work as part of dress code, as well as a collared shirt or polo. I was baking on the walk in, and was grateful that I'd kept extra anti-perspirant in my travel bag. All the women at my work were wearing skirts, some even above thigh height. Why is this acceptable, but not knee-length shorts for men?

Well, I don't know men in shorts kinda gives off the too casual vacation vibe not very work-like. Whereas pencil skirts still say work. Also in a hospital setting hairy man legs seem I don't know less clean for some reason. What would you think if your DR. or something came in with Bermuda shorts on, I would think he wasn't taking his job seriously, esp since I like most people are nervous enough in the hospital. Plus isn't it usually cool inside?0
