Another GenX bash thread. Meanwhile, we'll be in our jeans, paying for your SS benefits for the next 35 years, so lay off.
On that subject...
"paying for your SS benefits for the next 35 years"
or maybe not... 8-)
Well, the office where I was the fanciest dressed woman on the floor (without trying, mind you) only has two or three people younger than 45 on it...it's not merely a gen X phenomenon, IMHO...Personally think it's an old hippie idea.
Hello! qam1 is a well-known "GenX" guy who runs the GenX ping.
I'm sitting here in my office in my standard everyday IT work garb, jeans and a silk Hawaii shirt, thinking to myself ... my SS kicks in in 5 years ..
Thanks for being there for me.
These trends tend to cycle in and out. LOL, you could well be in a suit and tie working off those SS benefits, and your grandkids will be wearing jeans to their interviews! I like the corporate casual, and even the dressing down, I hope it hangs around. Some jobs are just better handled in casual clothing. I remember at an office I worked at in a rural area, a decade ago when casual fridays were ramping up, wearing a suit was greeted with suspicion by the locals.
