Casual Day

A brief history of Casual Day:
MEMO 1 to Employees: Effective immediately, the company is adopting Fridays as Casual Day, so that employees may express their diversity.

MEMO 2: Spandex and leather micro-miniskirts are not appropriate attire for Casual Day. Neither are string ties, rodeo belt buckles or moccasins.

MEMO 3: Casual Day refers to dress only, not attitude. When planning Friday's wardrobe, remember image is a key to our success.

MEMO 4: A seminar on how to dress for Casual Day will be held at 4 p.m. Friday in the cafeteria. Fashion show to follow. Attendance is mandatory.

MEMO 5: As an outgrowth of Friday's seminar, a 14-member Casual Day Task Force has been appointed to prepare guidelines for proper dress.

MEMO 6: The Casual Day Task Force has completed a 30-page manual. A copy of "Relaxing Dress Without Relaxing Company Standards" has been mailed to each employee. Please review the chapter "You Are What You Wear," and consult the "home casual" versus "business casual" checklist before leaving for work each Friday. If you have doubts about the appropriateness of an item of clothing, contact your CDTF representative before 7 a.m. on Friday.

MEMO 7: Because of lack of participation, Casual Day has been discontinued, effective immediately.

Thanx  Mike M.
