Naked Coffee or the empress's Clothes

Yes re read this again please….I'm writing naked. Yes, really !.
Why? Because yesterday, I saw something at my local coffeeshop that disturbed me (other than people drinking coffee with cream).

One of the employees showed up for work wearing a very low hipster and flipflops ; but before he could say hi, the manager took him aside, pointed to his footwear, and told him to go home. I almost choked while drinking my “ristretto”
The man looked at him questioningly, and the man repeated himself: "Look at your clothes. Go home and change."

Usually I immensely enjoy this kind of confrontation, but today was different. The manager handed his employee a copy of the dress code and marched importantly to his office. The kid left the store without a word, his shame naked to the world. All I could do was stare at my boots.

Clothes are funny things. If I open my drapes right now, it would be an affront to society because I am not covered in fabric. If I were to walk outside, I could be arrested for indecent exposure... even if I had a good body! That's a powerful statement about how we feel about ourselves. On the bright side, it justified my not exercising: no matter how good I look, my body will always be indecent.

What if I went to the store in my nighties? There is no law against it, but I couldn't walk five paces without a sneer or a laugh. I'd be tarred and feathered (a good look for autumn get-togethers). Not all dress codes are written down, but make no mistake they are everywhere. It's "okay" to wear my nighties in front of the TV, but if God lifted my house and revealed me to the public, I would be subject to ridicule. Let's hope that doesn't happen. It would be freaky. If it does happen I will surely let you know by blogging bout this celestial event.

As we speak, there is a woman at some beach wearing dental floss, but it is overlooked because she is on the beach. It's a bathing suit. If she we were wearing, say, underwear, she would be subject to prosecution despite the face that her underwear covers three times the skin. So it goes.
Picture God looking down at Earth as we might a child's globe. She is holding a Barbie Doll wearing a thong bikini, and as she moves her to different locations, she becomes acceptable, unacceptable, acceptable, unacceptable. At the beach: okay. At the store, not okay. In Iran, burned at the stake. In Rio de Janeiro, overdressed.

Even if you have admissible clothes, they still have to match, which poses a major problem for most men. For a man, if the stripe on his white sport sock is the same colour as the logo on his shorts, that's a match! When he sees a well dressed man, he just figures that the man is gay. Why do you think men wear tuxedos to formal events easy…. No decisions to make.

So I sit here in the flesh thinking about that kid in the coffeeshop (that didn't sound good I know)
I long for the day when my little barista to be is allowed to wear whatever he pleases without being shamed by the boss. If you ever find yourself judging someone for the clothes they wear, remember my friend at the coffeeshop and the fact that really everyone is equally naked under their clothes.

Do you judge people by the clothes they are wearing ? How bout wearing a buhrka ?

Poor guy, I'm sure he would have sold a lot of coffee if he had been allowed to wear what he wanted

I once tried wearing only the clothes of my mind.. but I couldnt find anything that matched! Then the damn colors started to run and I couldnt even begin to figure out which temp to use on the washer,,

So I give up,, I wear a uniform of basic ugly suits that overly expensive and come with such trival bullshit like suspender buttons. Go figure,, but I have found that when I wear cowboy boots and a nice suit does make me think I can actually kick shit. Should have seen the look on the judges face in court when I told him I wore cowboy boots to celebrate my religion. Some people just have no sense of humor..lol

I understand the dresscode requiring shoes. This self-righteous manager was wrong in belittling the employee in public. His was the greater wrong. Basically, that manager is not a manager but an enforcer. A manager manages!!

I have a naked statue in my home which my sister finds "disgusting" . The women is recling fully nude nothing much going on , although looking at it now she looks as if her back was tight and she was stretching . Anywho we fought miserably about how acceptable it was for my 12 year old nephew to see this (she asked me to cover it when he visits) . Then a week ago she gets a huge bill in the mail for her son viewing porn on the net . Thanks Karma I owe ya one . LOL

Hi there
Now come on - stop it!
writing this in the buff?!?!.....it's November girl....(even in di Nederlands....)

As for a 'burka'.....no....i've been advised to wear one....but i refused....spoils the complexion....(as in - no sun ever gets to kiss your skin)

If i were being dead straight with you (and why not)....i think burkas are absolutely ridiculous....

(and i never want to see you in one either...)

CoffeeNoCream,

I have read the warnings and have decided that because I am immature in nature, I am able to handle painful truths (I shave this face every morning with the lights on), I am not currently pregnant, and I’m not sure I would recognize an eggplant if it hit me in the head while shaving with the lights on; I would let myself in. I hope you don't mind. The no cream in the coffee has my guard up, so I will stay alert and on my toes. Sugar, yes, but black balling cream …. That is just so wrong, on so many levels; I just won’t start on that issue today. Read this only once, I am writing fully clothed, yes, with all my clothes properly positioned. My briefs may be riding up a bit, but other than that, properly positioned.

About the dress code issue you brought to light; you appear to be a strong individual. And for that you should applauded. Dress codes in your world should simply not exist. HOWEVER, for those who are not as strong and open minded as you, for those who are weak, close minded and perhaps somewhat shallow, those dress codes may be a good idea. The guy dishing up food in the cafeteria; no dress code, naked, scratching his sweaty balls, and carefully placing my sandwich on my tray. I really don’t care how many clear plastic gloves he wears, I just don’t want to eat ‒ EVER. I scratch my balls. Most men do. Sometimes they don’t really itch, it just feels good. I never serve food after having scratched my sweaty balls while naked. Um, well ….O.K., poor example, moving on.

There are some things parents try to protect their children from; car accidents, bee stings, blood, gore and the like. I personally see nothing wrong with the human body. It should be viewed as an object of beauty, something to be desired and revered. Again, HOWEVER, the lady at the beach during our vacation to Florida, she knows, there is no dress code. There should have been! Her yellow and blue with orange flowered suit was certainly big enough, only not for her. There was nearly enough material there to completely tarp a 45 foot flat bed trailer! And still she hung out. Jiggling and shimmering in the sun, sweat glistening as she plodded along the water’s edge. I wanted to turn away, I wanted to protect my young son, but I was helpless and weak and I needed someone to give me strength, some protection with a dress code. She had to be at least 50 years old and pushing 450 pounds. Indecent exposure just doesn’t say it strongly enough. Proper beach dress code should have been observed and enforced.

I like to sun myself wearing only my sunglasses and a smile, HOWEVER, with young neighborhood children around, there is one area I am careful to keep covered. I don’t want some girl to grow up feeling deprived and short changed. I love kids too much. No matter where we are or where we go, there will always be the strong and the weak together. Measures have to be taken to protect those who are unable to protect themselves. Maybe in a perfect world, we WOULD all be equally naked under our clothes. Until that time, we can still remember not to judge, and if you should see me wearing only my sunglasses and a smile; please, don’t giggle and point. Remember, I am not as strong as you.

I am only "A Simple Man and His Thoughts"

I have to be honest and admit that I judge people from what they cover their body with. It is called "prejudice". But a pre-judgement is inevitable, i think: clothes are soaked with symbols, just like any other human thing, so it is normal to have some first impressions. It is important though to see those as a starting point, and not as an arrival.

But as for the real meaning of your question, that is "would you mind if a barista prepares you an espresso wearing a burkha" then the answer is "no, I don't mind".

Never argue with an idiot. He brings you down to his level then beats you with experience
