we've got this campaign thingie at work right now and I absolutely hate hate hate hate HATE the t-shirts we have to wear during it!! (luckily it ends on the 15th)

the shirts are bright bright yellow and have a black picture of a hand (the kind you might find with the word "stop" near them) on the stomach area.

also, you have to wear some other shirt underneath it cause otherwise people can see your bra. yes, even if it's white or "skin colour". :rolleyes:



argh!!


the shirt(s) I usually wear are pretty cool. t-shirt is black with the store's name in the front and Battery written in the back (it's an energy drink). and long sleeved shirt is black and yellow with Miami Vice written in the back. :D




do other people have to wear ugly clothes to work?

  • The people that work at "Hot Dog on a Stick" have the worst uniforms ever. It could always be worse.

    Doesn't sound as bad as me! I'm currently working for a large baker's company (in the offices). But.. as my office in within the production area (smells lovely all day!), I have to wear the white coat, steel toe boots/shoes and.... blue hairnet (a bit like this one http://www.scobiesdirect.com/scobiesdirectimages/Thumbnails/tbhairnets.gif).

    I thought I would die laughing the first day I wore it :)

  • I have to wear sweater sets.

    I just got a part-time seasonal retail job, and where I'll be working has a dress code for women of a skirt or a dress, or, if you wear pants you have to wear a jacket or a sweater set. Because there's no FREAKING way I'm going to run around in a suit jacket or a skirt during the busy holiday season, I will be wearing sweater sets...

    So...it's not horrible, but it's a bit conservative. I think I'll top it off with a strand of pearls. ;):p:D

    Then today my uniform consists of a green disease t-shirt. :D

    Used to have to wear shirt and tie though, which isn't too bad in an office, but running round a busy restaurant in the middle of summer in a tie is a form of torture.

    eek! haha. that's so not.. you.. :D

    well, maybe the boots. ;) but the other stuff..

    at least you've got lovely smells though. it only ever smells like candy over here (not all the time though) and you get sick of it very easily.

    My student nurse uniform is hideous...:(
    A pale grey striped zip up tunic, with burgundy epaulettes!
    With silver coloured tapered trousers!!!!!

    I tell you, Kate Moss couldn't make it look good!!!

    It's the most foul outfit I've ever seen, and, when I qualify I plan on a little bonfire, and those bloody trousers are the first thing to go!

    My gf asked me if I,as a kid, ever used to watch the HDOS girls making lemonade like all the guys did where she grew up. I had no idea what she was talking about. But let me say this. If you are near a mall with a HDOS and they're making lemonade, stay for the show. ;):D

    I always thought HDOS was a Southern California phenomenon, but it appears as if they are slowly taking over the world. Man that cheese on a stick is fucking good but you might as well inject fat right into your arteries.

    I only saw them on malls in Northern California.
