A note from the woman who was training you at work yesterday:
Tights are not pants -- even if they have no feet.
Tights are especially not pants at work -- even in a factory.
Tights are triply not pants if you buy such a small size that not only are your buttocks tightly outlined by the wedgie to end all wedgies but you also have pubic mound cleavage.
And its highly doubtful that even your husband/lover/random hook-up for the day wanted to know that in hot weather your crack sweats enough to leave a visible mark on the tights you're pretending are pants.
Words can't really express the impact that this misguided "fashion statement" had on female observers.

OMG - have you been walking around campus with me? I thought about posting about this.
I am seeing this trend at the community college I attend. Suddenly too many women are wearing footless tights as pants with a normal waist length t-shirt or top.
Where are Clinton and Stacy when I need them?
This is why so many companies decide to have dress codes or uniforms. When people don't understand what is appropriate to wear, wow.

I am surprised this story didn't continue with the person being sent home to change their attire.
I live in Las Vegas and I am offended sometime by the attire that I see tourist showing off, I am sure some of these people would not wear that at their home in front of their family and neighbors so have a little respect for the locals and don't bring that attire here. We already know what "Showgirls" look like and where we can go to see them when we want to see them.
Sorry for the rant, hope everyone has a wonderful day.
