While working in an antiquated shelter, this man had to continually change up his daily attire.
U/Sucessful-Medicine9 writes that he works at a shelter that hasn’t been updated much in about three decades. He writes that people still take notes on paper kept in binders, and that they have panels labelled with cards with typewriter ink on them. That’s some impressively outdated technology. Despite all this clunky old tech, the OP’s boss knew exactly what needed to be updated first: the dress code.
Dress codes that are very nitpicky tend to annoy every employee. When you dress yourself for work, you dress in the manner you believe is acceptable. So it’s understandably frustrating when you think you look presentable, but because your shirt doesn’t have the proper amount of buttons on it, you could be written up for your attire. And especially at the OP’s job, where their clothing style actually matters a lot while conversing with clients, assigning a strict dress code seems like it would just hinder the employees.
