@Max, and where do you keep these items, on the floor?

@Etmax: Did you know that some of our news presenters wear a jacket & tie but shorts below the table line :-)

So long as they keep their shorts on, I think we're safe :-)

@Etmax: ...was too cheap to hire one for the 5 occasions I've needed one.

My 19-year-old son is in the JROTC -- they had their "Military Ball" last weekend -- I had to hire a tux -- the price made my eyes water -- fortunately, the only other time I think I'll need to wear a suit is when he gets married (hopefully not for a while) -- as far as I'm concerned, that should do me for the rest of my life :-)

@MeasurmentBlues: ...when are you going to learn that your shelf brackets need to be attached to studs in the wall?

It's no longer a problem -- I have simplified my life -- I now own two pairs of sneakers, one pair each of brown and black shoes (in case of an emergency), one pair of hiking boots, four pairs of shorts for summer, three pairs of yeans for winter, about 10 T-Shirts and about 20 Hawaiian shirts (plus socks, handkerchiefs, etc.)

I own one suit reserved for weddings and funerals. It replaces another that I grew out of.

I didn't like the idea of marrying my daughters off while wearing a T-shirt :-) and was too cheap to hire one for the 5 occasions I've needed one.

@Max, when are you going to learn that your shelf brackets need to be attached to studs in the wall?

I once heard a story from someone who bought a house and the cabinets where not attached to the studs, just screwed into the plaster. They came crashing down one night after being loaded with dishes. Someone did the kitchen remodel either just on the cheap to make it looks good for sale or the installer  was really dumb.

@Aeroengineer: I am glad that you clarified the point that you wear more than just a Hawaiian shirt.

Well, I only wear one at a time, you understand. The first thing I do after my morning shower is to decide upon the "shirt du jour" -- so by the time I leave the house I'm already in a happy mood :-)

@eBum: There's an easy way to get more Hawaiian shirts at EE Live: hold it in Hawaii.

That would certainly have my vote.

@Etmax: It would help exclude all the boring types in shirt & tie :-)

I no longer own any suits, non-Hawaiian shirts, or ties -- and my life is so much happier :-)

@Etmax: Why not make it the official garb?


If you have to force someone to wear a Hawaiian shirt -- they aren't worthy LOL

It doesn't seem all that long ago when I was a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed young engineer. Now I feel like an old fool, but where are we going to find one at this time of the day (LOL)?
