Simple Pleasure: An Observation

Imagine you are working in a typical office environment.  You hear someone answer "because all of my usual clothes are in the wash" and you look at the speakers.

If the respondent is male, he's generally dressed down for the office.  If the respondent is female, she's generally dressed up for the office.

Also, if it's a business casual office, if a female is dressed up, the most likely remark from a coworker would be "what's the occasion?" or "are you going out after work?" or something similar.

If a male is dressed up, the likely comment is "got a job interview today?"

  1. I agree with your observations. Being dual gendered we seem to pick up the ability to see how similar situations and circumstances can be perceived differently.


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
