Q: I’m a young man in the corporate world, blessed with athletic, all-American good looks. My office allows casual Fridays. I have a very hairy chest, and quite frankly, I enjoy putting it on display on Fridays, when I wear a nice dress shirt or polo shirt. I unfasten one button (two at the most), but that’s ample space to reveal quite a bit of chest fur. Several of the employees have complained! Am I out of line?
A: You are an evolutionary throwback, sir. I suggest you remain buttoned up until Saturday, when you can go down to the monkey house at the zoo and unbutton as far as the guards will allow. If this country becomes even slightly more litigious, you too might wind up behind bars.
