I’ve been doing a bit of traveling recently. What stuck in my craw is the picture of what people consider appropriate travel attire. When I was little, we travelled for the gummint. (Long story, another time.) I remember specifically getting “dressed” to travel. And the stewardesses wore hats and gloves.
Nowadays, more and more people are flying looking like Son of Swamp People. Pajama pants, plumbers’ pants, and other scruffiness seems to rule the air. Same thing applies to some of the gate staff. Just spotted a young man with his uniform pants strapped somewhere below his hipbones, shirttail sagging, and tie half un-done. I can only assume that his boss was nowhere nearby.
Whatever happened to pride in appearance? This is what a lady should look like!
