Another joker of a "journalist" has joined the "lol learn to code" bread line after being fired from Deadspin. Taking great exception to being asked -- as a sports journalist -- to cover sports, she went on to complain to the Daily Beast that she (and her fellow employees) were given an employee handbook that had the nerve to insist people show up on time to work and dress like professionals:
Perhaps most bizarrely, the handbook also establishes an attendance policy and a dress code. Employees must arrive between 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., according to the handbook, and are required to wear “smart casual” attire. “Offensive” logos or “sweatpants, exercise pants, Bermuda shorts, short shorts, biker shorts, Mini-skirts, beach dresses, midriff tops, and halter tops” are all banned.
The article's author is an idiot. These policies aren't bizarre. They're standard. You show up to work on time, or your employer will find someone else who can. You dress professionally, so as not to embarrass your employer while you're working. Seriously -- why would anyone pay an employee to just sort of wander into the office whenever they feel like it or wear clothes that scream "up yours, people with money!" to anyone who takes a tour of the office?
Of course, the moron complaining about all these changes (read that full article if you think you can stomach endless whining by an overpaid blogger who can't do as she's told even for pay) is no better.
Learn to code, jackass.
