My First Tie

Ever heard the famous saying “dress for the job you want”? Yep, that’s me; I’m a firm believer of that saying, so much in fact that if I had wanted to be a pornstar, I’d walk around butt-naked.

Anyway, I’ve decided it’s about time I go corporate, Lord knows I’ve had a qualification for about four years now and not applied it even once, instead I am packing stock in a Walmart stockroom and feeling proud to work as a “strong man” is supposed to, but the sad thing about strong men and their work is their bank balances don’t always match their work ethics.

So today I decided to buy a tie, I have no occasion for it but I just figured there was no harm in being “prepared”, right?
I’ve never been so proud of myself, and when I reached the till point the cashier asked me if I was going to a wedding? And as I awkwardly muttered “I am planning to change careers soon so I’m preparing my clothing for my prospective career path” I also figured she must have gathered that potential career I was referring to is wedding planning.

But anyway, when I finally got home I looked at it for about a million times, kissed it, tried it on and thought to myself; “I can’t wait to wear this damn tie”, and not for a wedding, ideally.

Dress for the job you want, every profession has a certain dress code exclusive to its practitioners, and if you have no idea what professionals in your prospective career wear you’re in trouble, or you just need to do some more research about your prospective career.

God Bless.
