And to defend the tie in business casual, I was also told that when dressing biz cas you start as if you were dressing formal and remove what you need to in order to look casual but be ready to go at a moments notice if you need formal. I've always worn a tie during biz casual and assumed thats how the world worked, my bad.


Because nothing you posted was potentially outing or sensitive in any way whatsoever. It was a benign statement; that's not what the anon function is for.

Also lolling at a tie with no jacket. That's bar mitzvah after-party status

you can't cognitive dissonance your way to this. it's more expensive working at a formal firm and it sucks balls putting on a tie everyday, wearing your top button buttoned, and wearing a coat in summer heat. there's no worry about what to do first day - either suit or no suit is fine at biz cash.


You should still be wearing a tie at a biz casual firm though.


lol. Maybe at top-bank-tellers.com

It makes sense this anon would want to avoid associating himself with wearing a tie with no jacket

This is the type of stuff I'm interested in. Ark- would you mind elaborating on this? I like strong, black coffee. KCups are non-starters. Please fully detail your coffee sitch.

Checking in...

My firm has a formal event in a few weeks where dates are encouraged to attend. My girlfriend is in a different city. Would it be wise to try and find a date on tinder or even hire an escort service for the purposes of this function? I want to make a good impression.

I'm a bit concerned because it may seem trashy. I wouldn't tell anyone it was an escort, but if the lady shows up looking all skanky then the jig will be up. What I'd really like to know is if there are LEGITIMATE escort services for this type of situation?

Obviously, this is the most important thing about an office.

There are definitely good K Cups, you just have to find them. If you like dark, bold coffee, true Van Houtte Eclipse Blend. That being said, there is definitely WAY better coffee out there.

you shouldn't have to pay someone to attend an open bar event with a BL SA unless you are either insufferable or fugly as fuck. use grindr or tinder and do what needs to be done.

Anybody else in this thread take caffeine pills rather than coffee? I'm a true believer in caffeine + theanine. Maybe I'll pop pills in seclusion, since popping pills in the office is prob frowned upon

If terrible movies have taught me anything, there are definitely such services. God speed brother.

If girlfriend is unavailable, then professional escort + shirt & tie is TCR.

lol at the shit SAs/NYC care about.

in SF no one wears a tie absent court/first meeting with potential client, and plenty of folks (gasp) wear coats w/o ties. tbf tho, the true SF look is no tie + fleece vest, so wearing a coat is already mad formal

if i can bestow one piece of advice on you all, it is this:

if you think you are in the clear to break wind in your office, i can guarantee that an associate/partner will walk in no later than 30 seconds after said relief. just go to the effing bathroom.

How do I assert dominance over my fellow summer classmates on my first day? Is it TCR to compare LSAT scores

Show your fellow summers pics of your hot girlfriend, who may or may not be a paid escort.

How much should I pay for my escort? All out balls out because $$$ummer? Also, should said escort be oriental ethnic or WASP?
