Good point. I sit at a desk all day so really the only hazards are pens, coffee spills, or snags on my chair/desk. I did rip open a pair of DH jeans the first time I wore them on a filing cabinet one time. That said, I think of it as I don't care as much about what I wear to work as apposed to when I go out.Realistically, I have ruined many more pieces out at bars than I have at work. I usually just care less when it happens when I'm out because I'm usually drunk.
