    that people think attire, lack of attire, long hair, weird hair, no hair.....baggy pants, high pants, no panties...blah, blah, an indicator of a person's worth or character.  Americans just love to lump and label.  It's a large part of culture's increasing desire for everyone to be part of Stepford.  Human nature says we want to be viewed as individuals, but more and more those with a big voice want everyone to get with the program...scary times.

      Just try to hire a person and not make your judgement on how that person looks and talks.  If you want a job, you don't get to go on a five day camping trip with the head of Human Resouces so they can get to know your true soul.

        How many young men wear saggy pants with underwear showing to job interviews? I've hired many people and have yet to encounter one who did.

        but I mentioned nothing about their speaking voices.  I can assess intelligence by interviewing someone for an hour or whatever, but that's always a crap shoot.  Wearing a suit to that interview would mean nothing to me.  I don't assess people by a newly purchased suit, one borrowed from a cousin, or one picked off the rack at Goodwill.  It means zippo.  George Zimmerman wore a suit at trial, Wall Street dolls itself up with suits, politicians wear suits on a daily basis.   A suit for an interview is a prop....nothing's not a gauge of anything....not even respect...BECAUSE it's a HAVE TO....not a want to.  It's forced by a society that is trained to view it as a sign of respect or seriousness when it translates to neither.  

    •  Scary times??? (0+ / 0-)

      Ever see photos and films of people and how they dressed in the early 1900's?  Men in suit coats/ties/hats were the norm.  Much more casual today.....but....oh, so SCARY.
