Must I turn up at work forgetting a change of shirt?
Heh! I have done that. It looks a bit odd wearing black work trousers with a muti coloured pro-team cycling jersey... good thing I didn't have a meeting that day!
I always try to keep a spare set of most clothing items in the office for just such days. It can still fail though when taking them home to wash and forgetting to replace!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have forgot my shirt many times. Many years ago i turned up to work and it soon became apparent that i had left my shoes at home, my boss was not sympathetic and in no uncertain terms told me to go home, take the day off without pay i turned around unsimpathetic and told him to wind his neck in and that i will just wear my socks as i would be tied to my desk that day. He said no you wont this is a health and safety environment so i looked down at his slippers and said so you want to make an issue out of this. He stormed off and didn't speak to me for almost a week.
Fortunately everyone here seems to wear the same size as me, so if I were to forget my company polo shirt I'd just grab another from the uniform box
I haven't done this for a long time ago... and just checked - yep still have my emergency shirt under my desk It's one of those shirts that should have been retired many years ago, but it'll do in an emergency....
I'm lucky, quite a few people walk around in socks or bare feet at my workplace and nobody seems to mind. I have spare shoes under my desk but I rarely wear them. I leave my trousers at work and take a spare top to wear, although sometimes I forget to take them home, so I'm building up a bit of a collection
Just don't forget to take spare underpants if it's raining, I did that once, and never again
Could be worse - you could be female and have left your bra at home ...
You need to stockpile your shirts at work. Along with socks, pants, etc.
I'm a chef, work cleans all my clothes. All I need to turn up with is myself as I keep my shoes in my locker.
i clean my clothes in the onsite laundrettes
Today I purchased a new suit, it will be ready for collection at 10am on Monday morning, so no need to take a suit in to work Monday (after having a few too many ales on Thursday and travelling home in my suit). I'm fortunate Spinningfields seems to cater to people who forget their clothing.
Although i need to carry underwear as i cycle in. My other chef job os slightly different wash my own clothes and leave in the locker
Not since those nights when I didn't get home..... but that now seems like a lifetime away
Just go comando. It gets hot in the kitchen anyway.
