So yes, I now work for a huge retail chain probably known to every human being on Earth. But, as it turns out, although they sell things to cater to alternative lifestyles, an associate is not really allowed to show any individualism. Whatsoever. After my first three weeks, the black pants that had been OK'ed by my district hire person were suddenly not okay. So, I relented and bought me some awful khaki pants. They aren't hideous..but I freaking hate khaki pants. And, then I was told that I can't wear my "extreme" makeup, i.e. really bright eye makeup/dark eye makeup and/or really bold lips. And on top of that, about three and a half weeks ago, I was told I can no longer wear colored undershirts. Only white..and possibly grey if I get it pre-approved. So, I bought some white shirts. Yep..you read that right. I don't buy white shirts. Ever. I do own white camisoles to wear underneath light or see thru shirts..but no white shirts. But, I'm getting somewhat shifty.. I'm not allowed to have piercings or tattoos, or really heavy jewelry, so I've taken to adding a piece of small fine jewelry a day. And today, I wore bright muted makeup; it's my small rebellion. But yeah, it went swell. I'll repeat the experiment tomorrow. All they can do is ask me to remove a necklace or take out the earrings. ..or lose a bracelet..or a ring.. yeah.
