As many of you know, the love of my life–J is a lawyer. He works at a small boutique firm with three other attorneys. Yesterday one of the attorneys–“Bob” complimented him on his tie. J usually takes his tie off before he leaves work and so he frequently leaves his ties on his desk, forgetting to take them home.
This morning when J got to work he noticed that Bob was wearing his tie. He had to decide whether to mention it. J called him out on it and Bob asked IF HE COULD WEAR IT FOR THE REST OF THE DAY. Weird? Yes! Why? For at least two reasons:
- It means Bob went into J’s office and found the tie. No one enjoys knowing that your colleagues are snooping around.
- HE IS WEARING SOMEONE ELSE’S TIE! Now, I’m not a man but I would equate wearing another person’s tie with wearing another person’s underwear. Ties are personal. This is not high school and I don’t know of any grown men who borrow other men’s clothes. Strange…
The question remains: should we ask Bob to dry clean the tie?
