So after at least two women have been scolded for their choice of dress by Southwest Airlines, I have to wonder…
Who exactly are these “employees”
And how is it that THEIR common sense can tell a woman what to wear?
I don’t have a problem with dress codes.
I understand that while at work we don’t wear mini skirts and cleavage tops.
I get that going from "beach-wear to restaurant-wear" may take a little planning (bikini-tinis are fine, but bikini-tops are not).
What I DO have a problem with is some random employee telling me what is appropriate based on their opinion of fashion when I may have an important flight I can’t miss.
I’d never wear the 3 inch mini-skirt anywhere… ever.
But then again I’m not 5’10 and 100lbs.
Regardless, I wouldn’t want “Keith” telling me I couldn’t.
If a company has “standards," of dress, then it should have a dress code that is followed by everyone… always…. rules are rules.
They shouldn’t be subject to one’s opinion.
Especially if that opinion revolves around someone else’s body.
"What really tops the whole story off is that Ebbert wore the same outfit on the return flight to San Diego later that day. A female flight attendant also took note of it, according to Ebbert.
“I was complimented by the stewardess on my return flight,” she said.
