Subject: Interesting "Proper Lab Clothing"
In-Reply-To: <DA124317454AAA46BEA4D857E818BEC3063EF745**At_Symbol_Here**>

We have a strict policy about proper lab clothing, i.e., non-perforated shoes, leg coverings, etc…. the basics.

However, yesterday we ha d a new one!  One of the people in my office was doing general chemistry lab walkthrough, and found a fellow who duck (duct if you prefer, although tech nically it’s duck) taped his entire legs to not let any skin be showing.  ; Yes, his entire legs. 

He said that he forget a bout the rules and figured well, technically it would follow the rules.  Never had seen that one before.  And yes, there is a picture, fuzzy (cell phone) , but I really would hate to be him when he took that tape off.  Wonder how much hair was removed at the same time?
