But no spandex! (And that's probably good)

June 26, 2009

It’s all gonna go to hell at over at Focus on the Family. They’ve changed their dress code and that’s gonna lead to nothing but trouble:

Focus on the Family has a new look – or at least its employees do.

Beginning today, men who work at Focus no longer have to wear mandatory business attire, including tie, and women employees don’t have to stick with just dresses or skirts and hosiery. Men can now come to work donning an open collar shirt – but no spandex – and women can arrive decked in dress pants and pantsuits.

In a related note, when I tried to tag this post “pants,” wordpress suggested I used the tag “squirrel underpants” instead. That says something about my blogging habits that I don’t wish to contemplate on a Friday evening.

I first saw the Focus on the Family story at Spare Candy. You should go read her funny post about the Hottest Girls iphone app.

When I was pregnant with my oldest, my mil gave me a childcare book published by Focus on the Family. At the time I had no idea what FoF was, but I was appalled when one section of the book recommended that I take a few minutes before my husband came home from work to put on clean clothes and freshen my hair and make-up. The reason was that “he’d appreciate the effort and I’d feel better for it.”

Ya know, I really think a “no spandex” policy is a good thing for most places of work.

And thanks for the link. :)

I had no idea what Focus on the Family was all about so I got a sampler here – http://johnfullerblog.com/2009/06/29/guns-in-church/

I was so wrong in thinking I knew where that post was going.
