Not about the Draft. Really.
I just want to put this out here. It’s a story about a man in a post office who’s been told he can’t wear loud ties to work.
Now, I have an aversion to ties to begin with, so I hate having to wear 'em for any reason. But, when I can’t avoid them, I wear the loudest ties I can find, because I like making others share my pain. (In a relatively harmless way, of course.) I can understand that a tie is a part of the bureaucrat uniform. But this still seems pretty damned petty. To say the least.
Besides, wouldn’t it be better to have happy Postal workers, even if they’re in loud ties, than to risk them becoming disgruntled?
