“Just to confirm…”
Never the best start to an email.
It was 12:30 and we were mid way through a busy lunch service in the middle of summer. A beautiful day to be stood anywhere but the mouth of a 500º oven. I was wearing shorts.
“… no shorts will be permitted onsite”
A building site.
I’d been chasing for a viewing for months, our allotted slot fell between a lunch and dinner service but the dress code caught me by surprise. A building site with a dress code.
As the last lunch order hit the spike I headed to the viewing, charity shop on route and I was the proud owner of some M&S Blue Harbour trousers several sizes too big, £4.50 including the tissue in the pocket.
I made the viewing and we’ve placed an offer. If all goes to plan the trousers are going on the wall.
We’ll have no dress code.
