Re: Am I the only one thinking that HP *should* have a dress code?
HP does have a dress code - several in fact. There isn't a global one, but each site has one.
Funny that. At the site where I worked, most of the work we did was for the Ministry of Defence. They would regularly visit. The civil servants wore suits, and the military personnel turned up in uniform. Now if you're paying millions to a company, you don't want to find a bunch of hairy arsed blokes who look like rejects from a Linux convention.
If you're a bin man, you wear overalls. If you're a pilot, you wear a pilot's uniform. If you work in a fucking office, you wear a shirt and tie. Is that too difficult to understand? There's a time and a place to wear certain things. You wouldn't turn up to your sister's funeral in cowboy boots, a deer stalker and a bow tie, so stop fucking whinging about not being allowed to wear your crappy heavy metal t-shirt and Birkenstocks to work, okay?
