Men in Hats

Well, I am making a New Year's resolution (better late than never) to try to post at least one thing every week that isn't fanfiction.      

There was an article in our local paper today that commented on one of my pet-peeves - men leaving their baseball caps on in restaurants. The article prompted my favorite talk radio host to do a segment on the topic. 

 

I don’t know the original reasoning behind doffing your hat, but it has to do with manners and respect. Back in the old days, when gentlemen (and I use that term very loosely today) came indoors, they would take their hats off because a hat, like a coat, was meant to protect you from the environment. And it would seem insulting to your host if you were implying that they couldn’t keep the weather off of you in their home or place of business.   

 

The newspaper columnist thinks that it must be a generational thing, to which I agree. My 21-year-old niece wears her ball cap almost everywhere, including sometimes in the house, and she leaves it on unless I tell her to take it off. This pisses me off no end. Or as my mom says, ‘I hate that worse than anything.’ [I use that phrase for lots of things!] 

 

The radio host (he’s about 45) admitted to wearing a cap in restaurants, and he couldn’t understand what the fuss was about. He saw no logical reason NOT to wear one. None of the callers could give him a good reason either.  Unfortunately, many of the guidelines for good manners have not been passed on. And that is just too bad. 

      

Whether it be Mickey D’s or the fancy place downtown, I HATE to see caps being worn inside. It shows a lack of manners and just seems low class.
