"Barefoot, tank tops and shorts.  I wear a shirt so I don't gross out my 10 yr old daughter.  If o had a son I'd go shirtless.   An elegant yet modern way to dress would be a preppy polo shirt, nice shorts or kahkis and some…"

"My thoughts exactly. I tend to dress more businesslike if I really have to get over that hangover and DO things. "

"So another question is if dress affects your state of mind and mood.  If it does use it.  If it does not don't worry about it."

The Dutch Dastard replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"Exactly. Do you dress for yourself, or do you dress for others? Especially in you own house, you can do what you like. Sometimes that's sweats with at T-shirt, sometimes that's something completely extravagant. "

Larry Parker replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"I grew up in the 50's and don't remember anyone dressing at home in a suit, etc. Maybe they did in NYC but not in Virginia. I will say it was probably a little less casual than today. But anything goes for me; I'm at home, that's…"

Jirby replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"If you're just hanging out around the house, what's wrong with sweats and a T shirt? Some of the Mad Men style is cool, but come on. You're hanging out at home. No need to get fancy. Plus, those guys are probably always…"

"I'm not sure I agree with rich people always had great heating.  Castles and such are cold and drafty places."

The Dutch Dastard replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"Tell that to the people who should be fixing my heating! Funny thing is that wealthy families never had a real worry about heating. It was only about the beginning of the twentieth century (higher taxes and depleting fortunes) most people living in…"

Joseph R. replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"For me I usually wear the under layer of whatever I wore that day. In the summer it's usually a t-shirt/button down/polo and jeans, in the winter it's usually corduroy pants/jeans and a sweater of some kind. I really don't…"

David F. replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"And then in the 1950's we got central air conditioning! That really caused the drop of in the use of indoor jackets.  When the house is not freezing you don't need the extra layer."

The Dutch Dastard replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"Ahaah! I often wear one out of bed until I feel like showering in the weekend. In the summer only with boxers under them, in winters with an old button down shirt and soft and flimsy pants. The robe is scarlet corduroy, and was made for my (sort of)…"

Rick Shelton replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"I don't know if anyone would call me a gentleman and certainly never "elegant" but I usually wear jeans and a colored t-shirt around the house.  If I have company coming over I may put on a polo with nice jeans. …"

Mike replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"Interesting. I know guys used to wear robes around the house (from the 1800s through to the 1950s), however now a days they've kinda gone out of fashion. I've even heard people describe house robes as being "gay", which is kinda…"

StaggerLee replied to Mike's discussion What do you wear around the house?
"My day consists of a wide variety of chores, some dirty work and some out-and-about. So I wear things that are functional in both because I haven't the temperament to change cloths three or four times a day.  That means jeans and a decent…"

Is this negligence?

I've been working in a department store (Belk) inside of a mall for almost three years now. I've never had any security problems and I've always felt safe up until last Friday. I departed from school around 2:20 and I arrived at work at 2:40pm for my 3 o'clock shift. Belk employees have to park on the third floor of the parking deck which I've been doing. On this particular day, the deck was a bit fuller than usual due to the Easter weekend so I parked in the very back of the deck against the…See More
