No Shoes, No Shirt, …No Golfing?

November 10, 2010

In some circles, a man taking off his shirt during a sports game marks the height of really getting into the game.  But not in Saskatoon, Canada!  (and maybe not ever in golf…)  But in either case, a shirtless golfer prompted a dress code to be written for the local course.

“I think it’s just a matter of being courteous to people. There’s appropriate clothes to wear for all seasons. . . . Right now, because we don’t have a dress code, staff can’t do anything about it,” said City Council Member Bev Dubois.

I’ve never felt personally affronted by how some one else adorns their body.  (After all, they’re not dressing me.)  But while we’re making laws that forced people to be ‘courteous’ to each other, I have a few that offend me more than shirt-wearing:

  • holding the door for the person right behind you
  • washing hands after sneezing and covering coughs
  • letting someone know if you’re running late

…to name a few…
