Wow -- how rude


Every morning on my way into the building I have to pass a security check point. It isn't all that exciting, just a rent-a-cop looking at badges to make sure you belong.

This morning a lady security guard says to me in a condescending tone:

"Ummm... don't you guys have a dress code?"

I looked at her like she had two heads and could only croak out a "Yes". I was dazed as I made my way to my floor.


I have on nice khaki pants, a red dress shirt and nice sandals. Why the eff is she saying that to me?

I'm hoping someone else had passed her a few minutes eariler wearing something inappropriate and she just felt comfortable asking me the question. After all, I see her almost every day.

It took me an hour or so to calm down... and when my female coworkers got in I told them. Which riled me up again. We sounded like a bunch of hens clucking... all in disbelief.

Her comment was totally, completely, and 100% uncalled for. OOOOhhhhh, I'm getting riled up again just thinking about it.

No kidding!

I would have said "And if you had my job, you could choose to ignore it as well"

but, that is just me. And I can be a punk. You are much nicer than I.

You are much nicer than I am, too.
I try to remember that maybe that rude is having a bad day, and that I really don't know what is going with that persons life...Maybe they have a reason for being a bitch.
Then, I think that they have no idea what I may be going thru, and it didn't stop them being an ass hat.
Then, I get angry again.
