There is a vast difference between how one dresses at the beginning of their job versus, say, six months later when all the novelty of getting a paycheck has worn off. You feel, at this point, you’ve made enough of an effort to put your best face forward, and now, they’re ready to see who you really are.
As you slowly unravel the layers of your true personality and aesthetic, you might elicit a few looks from those who are either in management or still underneath the six-month mark of employment. But if you look around the rest of the gulag, you’ll suddenly realize that it appears to be a homeless shelter, what with everyone dressed in near sweatpants and shirts with flagrant food stains on them. It’s then you know, your job is your comfortable old shoe of a relationship.
