The Campaign Starts Here! No More Ties
Ok, so I haven't worn a tie for quite a while now, but I feel it is my duty to spearhead a campaign to consign this outdated item of clothing to the dustbin of history.
Seriously, what is the point of this strip of cloth other than to make you feel uncomfortable and dull.
I am not suggesting we let all hell break loose in the area of workplace clothing. However, why do male workers have to put up with such a nonsensical item of clothing when our female counterparts don't have to accomodate any equivalent.
So take up the call – no to ties!
Edit – I have retracted certain statements regarding business shorts. As John Dale points out – why not go the whole hog and go for business shorts as well. Let's make the work place a comfort place!

Welcome to the club. I don't think I've worn a tie at work, er, ever…:–)

I only wear ties during term time, except for towards the end of the summer term, when I tend to get a bit bored of them…
The summer holidays is strictly tshirt and shorts :o)

I vaguely resent your dismissal of my shorts. If you think it's smart to wear clothes on the basis of comfort rather than convention, why wouldn't you wear shorts when it's as hot as it was today?

But on reflection I retract the statement and purge it from the entry – no ties and shorts for all!

Well I am going to wear a vest–top and a floaty skirt and really big sunglasses.

I like ties but only when I know it's my own choice to wear one. They can look quite cool.
Completely agree about not being made to wear them though.
