Tacky Day At The Local High School
I was minus a photographer today....be quiet!
Today, I spoke to two other high schools in my area about starting a small business and succeeding in today's tough economic climate. The first school was a private school, and it is a stuffy one by worldly standards. The students have to wear sport coats or sweaters (vest or pull over), shirt and school tie. The event was enjoyable, and there were no comments made about my apparel. That being said, this is a good time to share my ensemble:
BB Camel Hair Sport Coat
BB Wool Tartan Trousers
Polo Knit Tie
BB White Pocket Square
After leaving the private school, I arrived at my second destination, the public school. Immediately upon entering, I was greeted by awkward smiles and giggles. One kid ran up to me and said, "how did you know today was tacky day". I responded with, "tacky day"! "Yeah", he said, "We are having spirit week for homecoming". Even the staff looked at me with perplexed looks. The speech went well, but what is so strange is teachers that were wearing non matching shoes and black wigs looked at me as if I was dressed inappropriately because of tartan trousers. Wow, public schools, and their discriminating attitudes.......I shouldn't be surprised.....I did attend one.
Thus, what the fuss was all about today!
