    BROOKSVILLE, Fla. - A Florida city is cleaning up with a new dress code that requires city workers to wear underwear and use deodorant.
    The city council in Brooksville north of Tampa recently approved a dress code that instructs employees to observe "strict personal hygiene."
    It also prohibits exposed underwear, clothing with foul language, "sexually provocative" clothes and piercings anywhere except the ears.

    Repeat offenders can be fired.
    The city council approved the dress code 4-1 as part of a wider effort to update existing policies and ordinances.
    The one vote in opposition came from Mayor Joe Bernadini. He said the underwear edict "takes away freedom of choice.":laugh2:

    I remember when I used to work at a bank in the Proof dept and there was this middle eastern guy who didn't wear deodorant. I realize this was probably related to his culture, but it was killing the rest of us.

    Everyone literally avoided him when they could. He wasn't a bad guy, just smelled pretty horrible.

    Enough people complained that the supervisor called him into her office and told him it was a problem. He overcompensated by piling on cologne, which was worse, but slightly more tolerable.

    I went to highschool with an Indian guy for a few months who believed "God cleans his body." Well he didn't, and he smelled horrible. I saw him a few years later at a hospital and he was fine.

    I guess he got the memo.
