is it OK to wear my ball cap in a restaurant ?
I always remove my "cover" when indoors. Oh, the last time I wore my cap backwards was when I was a catcher in middle league baseball. That was about a couple of thousand years ago.
Yeah, I do too--to do otherwise just doesn't sit well with either my military background or my upbringing.
Not too many of them left--gentlemen that is---it seems like most of the hats (mostly baseball caps) are glued to the heads and don't even get me started on middle aged men with their caps turned sideways or backwards----
Oh come on----get "started on "middle-aged" men with hats on sideways!
Did you get to see those idiotic English women's hats at the gross show-off wedding? There are hungry people in London right now!
Time for those sorry, lazy, in-bred, royal bums to disappear. It is the 21st century.
We have a few here in Fayette who would love to be involved with such foolishness!
scientists to get into that brain of yours. Your's certainly functions differently from the majority. How you could turn a statement about baseball caps into a diatribe about English royalty is a prime example. No wonder people who aren't used to reading your blogs are sure you are on mind altering drugs. Your 'stream of conscienceness' always amazes me. As for that gross show-off royal wedding--bet you were glued to your telly. If not, how do you know about the outlandish hats? So, there are hungry people in London right now you say. Are you suggesting they eat those hats??
The money to make those $100,000 hats would have fed the people awhile!
I saw them on the evening news! I was not "glued" like you.
There are no mind-altering drugs. I may not agree with the majority here on many things, yes.
Nero fiddled while Rome burned and Antoinette said, "let them eat cake," when they had no bread, and they died quickly.
refresh your memory. Marie had no use for hats of any kind after her capture--the guillotine will do that to you--suddenly you lose all desire for any time of headdress! She and ole' Louie 15 met their demise at the hands of those "cake eaters' who didn't die. The English royals wore extravagant hats to the nuptials of their prince--and just what does this have to do with men in the US wearing or not wearing their caps in public--just how does that connect--that is unles you are Roundie and then it makes perfect sense, doesn't it? Oops, you better run--almost time for the FOX Fillies--wouldn't want you to miss them, now, would we? So, take a chill pill, push back that easy chair and look at all those cuties and dream, dream, dream.
Well you certainly won't be the lone ranger with a cap on in a restaurant. Times have changed I guess. Manners, many more significant than caps, are no longer what they were. Thing I find odd is that it's not only youngsters with their caps on at the table. Many are old enought to remember when it was considered to be bad form. Unlike the cyclist I never have worn my cap backward because I pitched and played first. Never wore one that covered my ears either.
It is better than a shower cap or a rag!
If one doesn't wash their hair very often, I don't want to see it while eating.
Don't the Jewish people put one on to eat?
I think maybe we just don't like crooked hats and consider them a sign of vandals!
thanks for all the perspective
Being raised both in a home where manners and courtesy were considered essential plus having a military experience, not removing your hat indoors and especially while seated in a restaurant is just plain rudeness. It is an insult, albeit a slight one, both to the proprietor and other diners. Restaurants should have special tables screened from view and adjacent to the kitchen door for these people.
Who are these ill-mannered, rude, and insulting people who will sit behind a screen near the kitchen MADE JUST FOR "THESE PEOPLE?"
DOES "PANTS ON THE GROUND" ALSO COUNT?
Do girls with breast bucket blouses count? How about panties showing through the thin outer pants or skirts?
