What Was I Thinking?

I know that it is my turn to post today, so why did I spend the afternoon with a friend and then dinner with another one, allowing me no time to write. So, 10.30 pm here and no idea what to write about.

I must say that Chris’s post yesterday horrified me. Particularly the photo of the school teacher who thinks it acceptable to turn up to school in a totally inappropriate form of dress.

I thought about all the outcry around much of the world in 2011 about the young woman who had to adhere to the dress code of Harrods or risk losing her job. The part of the code about which she was arguing was the need to wear makeup at all times at work. Read about it here.

So if a young woman is either sacked or forced to leave her chosen place of business because of an item in the dress code to which she cannot or will not adhere, how come then a teacher, in charge of a mixed class of children, teenagers perhaps, is allowed to appear at school in this ridiculous, and embarrassing to young women, attire.

I think I have said enough. I share Chris’s embarrassment and trust that the Halton District School Board works quickly to right this very obvious wrong happening right now. Perhaps the Board and the teacher should dwell upon the quote from Loretta Young –

“Wearing the correct dress for any occasion
is a matter of good manners.”
Loretta Young. American actress, 1913-2000

And the booby prize goes to..

Canada. Again.

THINGS HAVE GONE TOO FAR.

The other day it was our Prime Minister of questionable intelligence yet again, singing Bohemian Rhapsody, in a bar, in London England, the night before Queen’s funeral. He does us so unproud so often.

Now, companies and institutions have policies for a reason. In this case it is The Dress Code. It determines the public face – and sets the standard for professionalism. And this isinglass particular

We now have a situation – with more than one idiot – that demonstrates we have surrendered all standards, and probably ethics and morals.

This is the headline:

This is about the male teacher at the center of a controversy –that shouldn’t exist.

Enter Idiot #2

This is the direction that regardless of poor taste or stupidity, it appears the School Board, is about to deep six standards in the excuse of the above≥

I support it all BUT THERE STILL MUST BE SOME KIND OF STANDARD. A decent one.

Regardless of every parent complaining and marching, no one seems to be thinking about the kids. The girls who are embarrassed and nervous about their own body development, and the boys who are snickering and sharing dirty grins. None of these children are gong to be learning.

And by the way – what you are about to see is a prosthetic so its not like its the guy’s real or fabricated through surgery body

Yup, this is what the idiot wears to school.

I believe every teacher who works in that school should wear clown suits and makeup.

I have so much to say but I AM SOOOO MAD.

I must wish you all well from North of 43 and I not putting a signature photo of me here.

Shame shame shame
