Back to my 3rd-favorite pastime: making fun of Nick.

I hired Nick to his first job out of college, and we sometimes have a laugh at his "hire me suit" that he wore. He never wears formal clothes and it showed, he looked like a geek wearing a suit. Anyway, being the good sport that he is, he shared a link to his old resume page fresh out of college where I found this:

Yeah, I laughed too (if you know Nick you have to laugh, he's laid back and looks like he's visibly uncomfortable in that outfit). Programmers don't have to dress that way but Nick didn't know that and was rocking the nerd uniform hardcore.

@Robert Gentel,
The best part about it is that it is a .gif!

(sorry Nick, that has to hurt the nerd manhood)

Don't fret, Nick. It could have been a lot worse!

@Butrflynet,
Yeah, I could have had an actual picture of the hire-me suit.

@Robert Gentel,
Ok, someone has to do it.

What are the first two favourite occupations?


Nick....you are going to be very grateful for that slim build in future days...

Making fun of the things Nick likes, corn/Nebraska jokes.... I dunno, just didn't want him to think he was important enough to be number one I guess.

Imbeciles will believe you.

Most won't.

@Nick Ashley,
You should probably wear a suit...

That pocket looks dangerously unprotected.

Check out the creases.
He took it right out of the wrappings, unpinned it, and put it on.

@Nick Ashley,
Depends on the year. Some years, that tie is in the right place, maybe even most years.

Please don't invest in a Thom Browne suit, Nick. (He's the one with all the tighty wear.)

We like Nick for being Nick, of course. May he be well and prosper.

So, Nick, what do you usually wear?



Editing, I looked up some recent Thom Browne stuff. Eh, he's moving back to not putting men into shrimpified suits, the ones where horizontal creases were somehow meaningful and the verticals were shorted. (yawn). EhBeth will know of what I speak.
