THE EDITOR: When I passed the SEA, I had to make some adjustments to my mode of dress.
I had to wear shoes. I had to wear a tie.
I leaked on my tie many a time because I was wearing it too long. I had to have a proper haircut and beard.
For me the change was challenging but I quickly adapted.
I knew my new environment had rules and regulations. I wanted to be there.
There was a dress code in effect. Discipline solves everything.
I could stay home dress how I wanted and not be be properly schooled. When I go to to the bank to withdraw my money I have to remove my cap. When I go to a Hindu temple I have to remove my shoes.
I lost a good Pony in India this way.
This is not personal. This is about following relevant rules and regulations.
You always have a choice in life. I say conform and comply then complain.
