I couldn’t find an official press release, but the rumor is that Michael’s Craft Store will soon be implementing a uniform for it’s employees. Now, with Michael’s being a hub of creativity (yeah, right!), wouldn’t you expect something kind of jazzy? Well, not to be, my friends. The uniform will consist of a black shirt and khaki pants. Creative expression aside, let me speak up here for the wide of hip like myself. You couldn’t PUT me a more unflattering pair of pants than khakis. I mean, not even if you got the dorky guy with the weird haircut from Design Star to make me sumthin’. Just….ewwwww! So, to my sistas who work in the trenches of retail craftdom that is Mike’s, God Bless ya. Now, some message boarders are finding this a welcome concept, as they are tired of seeing all manner of skin, tattoos, and general unprofessional-ness by Mike’s employees. Read all about those and other issues HERE and HERE. Well, I have to say, I’ve never paid attention to what my Mike’s gals are wearing. Guess I’m more worried about what percentage my coupon is, or how much cash I have in my wallet to cover the rad clearance item I just found. I hope they don’t do away with the red aprons, though. Now, THOSE are jazzy!
