It sounds like I am "ahead of the curve" after all! I haven't worn a watch (or any unnecessary nonsense like rings etc.) for more years than I care to remember. Why would anyone need to? (... the watch kept stopping, and the ring caught - painfully - on stuff when my hands were groping around inside bits of kit). And, as for for long sleeves, and ties ... well, don't even ask!

Sorry Joe, but it sounds like you've got problems there, Mate. Do you need me to visit to do a bit of mentoring before things get too far out of hand? If you must wear lab coats, I would go for blue. We are not clinical staff, and it is misleading (unethical?) to suggest otherwise. Unprofessional, in fact. smile

If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
