Shorts at the Office: An Appraisal
A Kempt contributor who shall remain nameless (hint: not me, and not Caitlin) had the audacity to wear shorts to the office yesterday.
Finally, at precisely 5:07pm, I mentioned it to him. I asked if I was the first to do so. I was. Was I the first to notice them? I can assure you not. Was this practice acceptable?
Yes and no. The pros and cons:
We don’t work in a bank, a law office or the military.
We don’t work as guitarists for AC/DC.
It’s motherfucking hot out there.
We work indoors, and have spared no expense on a state-of-the-art air-conditioning system.
The guy’s got nice legs.
I just wrote “The guy’s got nice legs.”
Let’s just say he wasn’t fired… yet.
