Web Watch was chatting with a friend the other day who happens to run their business from home.
Part of their job involves meeting with clients, often at their homes at various times of day. Hey, not everyone has an office job, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not a job.
So they said that one thing that often happens to them — and they stressed the word “often” — was that their clients would take the meeting in their underwear. Or their spouse would walk into the room in their tighty-whiteys.
They’d always act casual about it, but the sheer number of examples that were provided as part of this conversation leads Web Watch to believe that CASUAL UNDERWEAR MEETINGS are more common in everyday life than we’ve been led to believe.
Perhaps CASUAL FRIDAY in the workplace needs to be more casual?
We bring this up as we’ve since run across THIS STUDY ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN FOOTBALL AND UNDERWEAR:
It ends up that business meetings, in general, are fairly boring. So when meeting attendees’ minds drift away from the meeting topic at hand, what are the THREE THINGS THAT PEOPLE THINK ABOUT THE MOST?
- Football (nearly 50% of the men)
- Food (nearly 20% of all participants)
- Underwear of their colleagues (primarily men)
- The fashion choices of their colleagues (primarily women)
Hate to break this to you — but now that you have these three F’s in your head (Food, Football, Fashion), we know that you’re going to be thinking about NOT thinking about underwear when you go into your next three-hour marathon discussion.
Just try not to think about underpants during that meeting. Let us know how that works out for you.
