    Male employee: What is the dress code for the boat trip?
    Male manager: It’s not my call, but my policy would be no shorts. Or no wife-beaters, no crotch-grabbers, no tube tops. Unless you’re hot. Which no one here is. And definitely no Sublime t-shirts with 4/16, the stoners’ holiday, printed in big letters. And no shirts that say Tool on them, none whatsoever. I will not have anyone here showing up to a corporate event high on marijuana and drugs with Tool shirts again.
