    I see the legend in his own mind has taken down his pics.

    Oh I'm convinced, it's others who need convincing.

    Have you ever flown business class?

    That's totally irrelevant. You don't need to nitpick to try to stay afloat, just come to terms with the fact that you may need to tone it down a bit.

    +1 to what Balfour says, and also remember to never speak in the workplace to give yourself an air of stoicism, and if confronted about your demeanor or dress immediately burst into tears to trick others into thinking you're weak before attempting to roundhouse kick them. All the ladies will instantly notice your gentlemanly aura.

    I thought perhaps I should post some pics of me turned down a notch next week, to have before and after pics.

    Make sure you get the urinal in the pics. That's what really makes the WAYW look complete.

    Yes. I even went to Whole Foods once. And I have a Mont Blanc pen. And my apatment smells like rich mahogany. I'm clearly a BIG DEAL.


    el oh el. I mean, you're only 24 so I'll cut you some slack, but once you achieve anything near quasi-mini-baller status you'll realize that you don't need to give a fuck about what other people think.

    Seriously though, what have you achieved in life so far that makes you so convinced?

    Your colleagues aren't giving you a hard time. They are trying to gently tell you that your clothing choices are negatively affecting your image at work. You're lucky. In many industries you would have just been fired or written off completely. It is possible that will still happen to you (and likely that you've already put yourself in a pretty big hole). You seem to have a sense that you have a problem, but you don't know what it is. It isn't your clothing. Its that you don't get corporate culture. You don't understand why its important. I think you are likely to learn a hard lesson soon.

    I assume that you get equally upset when you meet young men who don't know their Homer and Virgil by heart (in the original Greek and Latin, obviously).

    Charles Bronson? Sounds more like Harvey Keitel's orientation talk in Reservoir Dogs.

    FWIW I've flown first since before I could walk.

    What was your point again? I couldn't hear you over sound of my seventh glass of pre-departure Dom being poured.
