Today, I aspire to a job in an environment in which a comment on my attire is not the standard way to open a conversation.

The first conversation I had this morning went like this: 

Me: "Good morning, [Professor X]."

Prof X, disapproving: "Hello, Lauren.  You look very school-marm-ish today."

Me, cheerfully: "Oh!  In a good way, I hope!"

Prof X, doubtfully: "Well I don't know... I'm really not sure about those shoes."

For Pete's sake.

  1. L, I really think you should delicately point out how inappropriate it is for a professor to comment on your physical appearance. They'll never learn if they aren't made aware of just how inappropriate it is.


Please comment! And please be nice. We'd prefer if you'd use your first name, but understand if you'd rather not.
