Came to work today and realised that my suit jacket didn't match my trousers. Granted both were dark colours. Still, one was dark blue and the other was deep black.
Ever the masochist, I pointed out the faux-pas to a colleague.
'You numpty,' he said, smirking.
'You wally,' said another, passing by. 'What is this - American-style?'
This contretemps points to several things:
- People on the train looking my way were not admiring me.
- I don't wear suits as often as I should.
- I should be a bit more organised in keeping suit jackets and trousers together.
- I should not dress in the dark. Even if the light wakes the wife up and subsequent life is less worth living.
