If you are looking for a job in Florida, there are some new requirements in the municipality of Brooksville.
City workers are required to use deodorant before coming to work. It does not appear there will be any spot checks, though.
Skip the foul language and sexually provocative clothes too. Plus, that piercing youâ€™ve been thinking about on your tongue? Well, that is out too. Piercings are only for the ears.
The city council approved the new dress code by a 4-1 vote with the warning that repeat offenders can be fired. The lone vote against the dress code came from Mayor Joe Bernadini. He thought that the ban on going without underwear infringed on personal choice.
â€œThey said you had to wear undergarments, but whoâ€™s going to be the judge of that? Sometimes when it comes to certain people going bra-less, itâ€™s obvious. But whoâ€™s staring to see if that person doesnâ€™t have underwear on?â€ Bernadini said.
It looks like Brooksville needs some underwear police to enforce the ban. They should have good noses too, so that they can sniff out the BO.
City Manager Jennene Norman-Vacha said no one has been sent home because of the dress code violation, and she doesnâ€™t expect it to happen. Of course, that brings up the real question. Why pass an unenforceable law if no one is expected to violate it anyway?
