OK, am I the only one out there who finds this offensive–I mean, in my face, at work?
I may be old enough to have grown children, but I’m definitely NOT a prude!
But, would you agree, unless you work somewhere that involves a pole for dancing, that this amount of cleavage is NOT appropriate for your line of work?
I work in a school system and I see a fair amount of skimpy, midriff-baring, cleavage-peaking blouses just about daily. . . and it’s not just the young, perky teachers and staff! Sometimes, it’s my contemporaries, and as my own children tell me when they’re hanging aroud our pool in the summertime, “Really, Mom, nobody wants to see that. . . put them away!”
What gets me in schools is, who exactly are these women dressing this way for? Colleagues don’t want to see this—and parents definitely DON’T want to see this, either! And, please, let’s protect the innocent children.
If anything, I find myself inspecting my necklines and questioning if I should add a T-shirt under tops and dresses, just so I don’t insult or embarrass anyone. On the other hand, if I’m going out for an evening and I’m not likely to run into any of my students–or their parents–that’s another story!
On another, related note . . .
Here’s a funny greeting card that I just couldn’t resist buying the other day. I’ll probably give it to my good friend, Pat, on her next birthday:
Two fifty- or sixty-something-year-old women friends at the beach in bathingsuits (not that we’re THAT old!):
Friend A (I’ll call her Patty): “The bad news about getting older is that we get flabby thighs.”
Friend B (Could be me!): “The good news is that our boobs cover them!”
Inside message: “Hope you’ve got a happy birthday covered!”
OK, there’s your laugh for the day . . . but if there’s something that you just have to get off your chest about all the cleavage out there, let ‘er rip . . . and leave a comment!
