I despise this simple fact.> There is age discrimination, weight discrimination, and ugly discrimination. and those particular discriminations also apply to men, but to women even more. If the 'other offenders' are younger, prettier, or skinnier, it is a plain and simple fact that they will get by with things an older, not so perfectly skinny, not so 'hot' woman will not. Fact of life. This is a hard time for jobs. If you need yours, I would ask my boss if my clothing was inappropriate. If he/she says yes, then find something else to wear. If they say it is okay, ask that they clarify that with the other TMs. But I wouldn't say anything about the other girls. That is just immature---unless you are a 'union job' with specific dresscode. If not, then it just boils down to "life ain't fair."

I wouldn't want to lose a job over a pair of capris. And flip-flops are flippity-flops no matter whether they are plastic, leather, or diamonds. And in all honesty, should NEVER be worn anywhere other than the beach. These have somehow become 'shoes', when in fact they are not. When my daughter started college, she was told there was no dress code other than NOT being allowed to wear flip flops. The reason---too many injuries, turned ankles, etc.

Wearing them to work is tacky for a teen-ager and ridiculous for a grownup (and I am not meaning to be rude). Yes, it sounds like yours were a nice pair of sandals, but in reality, they are really just a nice pair of flip-flops. You are already lucky if they don't have a strict dress code on shoes. Every job my daughters have had since high school has required that you buy a particular pair of shoes.


TOTALLY and inequivocally untrue. I guess if you've never been young and hot you might not know so let me explain. Once when I was young and hot I was spoken by a manager who said even though it looks SO awesome how you wear your uniform with no pantyhose, and they are silly to be worn with something so revealing and with tennis shoes and socks, they ARE the dress code and you MUST wear them or be written up. Another time I was told at a totally different kind of job, even though those shoes are incredibly wonderful to look at and your pedicure with the different color toes is extremely fun to watch those shoes are outside our dress code as being "open toe" and so you must comply with dress code by tomorrow or be in violation and I will have to write you up.

Both male bosses. Both clearly impressed with my looks/attractiveness. Both to the point and by the book. Young and hot has nothing to do with it. If you're ugly, that's your problem.

Excuse ME -- THAT was rather RUde AND UNnecessary. And, excuse me, I WAS once young and Very Hot. I worked in Corporate America. I SAW the 'cutesy, flirty' girls get by with painint their nails at their desk and the boss stopping to chat about their color choice.' While I sat next to them quitely digging thru a stack of work. I had no lack of male attention---I just didn't seek it at my jobplace. So, it DOES happen even if you are young and hot. I can't wait until you are not so young. Even if you are older and hot, you are still older.

Apparently, you aren't old enough to recognize that attitude changes when you pass a certain age. Of course, NOt AT EVERY WORKPLACE...and I did not say that. Apparently, you had good bosses who did not let your hotness interfere with what they thought was appropriate.

And 'ugly' can be deeper than skin deep. and your response was Not HOT. Have a cup of coffee and chill out. The rudeness was UNnecessary.

Absolutely. Years ago (when I was a straight stick), a girl in my math class was sent to the principal's office for wearing a short skirt to school. Before she stormed out, she pointed to me (and my tiny skirt) and asked why I wasn't in trouble too. The teacher calmly answered "Well, she doesn't have any curves. It's not offensive". Short-skirt girl was furious and I was humiliated.

The above response by another to my observation about Discrimination totally caught me by surprise. And since it may no longer serve the purpose of the OP, I started a New TOPIC:

Discrimination--Weight/Age/Hotness/Not-s0-Hotness??

Please come on over and let me know your Discrimination Issues---or not. Thanks.
