You know, I'm the one who said that and I wear a company t-shirt to work. Actually, it beats spilling acids and reagents on my own clothes. I started buying the Faded Glory jeans at Walmart for $8 a pair because it doesn't bother me when I put holes in them after a couple of months. Ironically, they are the only jeans I buy anymore.
When I worked for Dominos Pizza (5 years?!?!), everyone had to wear blue pants. It was the main requirement for being hired. We had such a hard time getting drivers that one of the stores that I worked at (Garland, TX) was across the street from a Goodwill. He would give a new driver $4, tell them to go get a pair of blue pants and that they could pay him back at the end of the night out of their tips. It was actually a fun job: robberies, muggings, drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex, ect. The hours were long, though. Put my ass back into college, that's for sure.
