So yesterday before I left work my principal came to talk to me. He said the board met recently and one of the things they talked about was that some of them don't feel that I am dressing professionally. He said that I've been wearing "dresses that show cleavage." Those were his words. So I rack my brain, trying to remember when the last time I wore a dress to work was, let alone a dress that showed anything. And I said that I honestly couldn't remember when I did. And he said yesterday (Thursday). My first thought: I didn't wear a dress on Thursday. I wore a skirt and a tank top with a sheer black collared shirt over it. Frankly, I thought I looked awful cute, although I guess sometimes the tank top slipped down. The funny part is that I've been trying to buy more camis and tank tops so that I don't show anything. And then my second thought was, "Doesn't the board meet on Tuesdays?" Either they met on Tuesday, and he just happened to notice on Thursday, or they met on Thursday after I wore my breasty outfit. Sigh. So, I guess I have to watch that. I'll be leaning over every morning before I leave to see if anything shows.

He also said that I have been wearing flip flops. Well, that can be explained. I told him that when I was recovering from my leg, I couldn't wear any of my dress shoes because they had heels. But now I can, and the flip flops had sort of become habit, but I wouldn't wear them anymore.

And then he says, "They also said, 'We don't really like her hair either. It's not natural.' " And here Glen said that he told them "you can't really mean that" or something along those lines. He basically told them it was natural and there wasn't anything they could do about it. I told him that it was really odd that they thought it wasn't natural when I have had quite a few people tell me that it looked very natural on me.

So now I'm a little bit down, I was really down last night, but I was thinking about it a little bit earlier, and now I'm down again. Sigh. I don't know.

Edit: I'm waiting to see if I get told that my shirts are too tight as well. If they do say that, I'm going to tell them that I gained weight, and I can't go buy a whole new wardrobe. I have to buy groceries today on a credit card because we're broke. If they want to give me a raise, I'll gladly go buy new stuff.

Sigh. Again.
