...one of the (many) reasons I prefer to be self employed is that I can set the dress code: jeans and a shirt is fine.
And most of my customers are the same: I can visit them in jeans, they can visit me.

But today I am sitting here in a suit, tie, and dress shoes instead of comfy ones (I have to go to a funeral in half an hour or so) and I'd forgotten just how stupid ties are.

What do they usefully do, other than try to strangle you?
