I have friends who work in waste management.
Since it's Tuesday (a day I teach), I am wearing a tie. Specifically, I am wearing a black shirt, grey and black stripped pants, and a black tie with a tiny silver and white pattern. I like this outfit; Andre and Heidi gave it to me for Christmas. Yet, two people today have said I look "very mafioso." Does black shirt = Tony Soprano now?
Marshall said next time someone says I look like I am in the mafia, I should sneer and say "Do I look funny to you? Do I amuse you? Am I some sort of clown to you?". He also cautioned that I should avoid bludgeoning colleagues or students with the butt of a gun.
I'll get Sarah to take a photo when I get home so I can get some other feedback. Notice that all of the men in the photo above are wearing WHITE shirts.
