Why Don't You Wear Pantyhose Anymore?

    Pantyhose make your legs look so much better than those bare legs. I know the doctors love them because I constantly get long looks at mine. I work it, and anything that can give me a leg up (no pun intended) is fine with me. I see only one other rep wearing them in the territory and she seems popular as well. I know it isn't the "Sex in the City" skank look, but I still like to look professional. I'm 28 and look great so I'm not a old lady just a refined one. I see a lot of other reps with terrible looking bare legs so I just don't get it.

    Why do you bother? It's just one more thing you have to take off when it comes time to whore your body out to the doc for the script.

    Wow. Wears something to impress docs. Honey, they don't care. If you are at that point, all you have to do is open your mouth to unimpress them (unless you are blowing them).

    My lady wears thigh-highs when she knows she going to visit. That and the thongs she wears makes for very easy access. She's gotten to the point now that sometimes even when we're in bed, with lots of time, and can do anything we want, she'll keep her panties on and ask me to do her while she wears them.

    Look Homo man or old lady: No one wears pantyhose anymore. Maybe in the dead cold of winter, but not a damn woman wears these ridiculous looking things otherwise.

    If its summer and you see pantyhose, you can bet the wearer is at least 60 years old or a cross dressing man.

    This is interesting...lately I've been thinking about returning to nylons, heels and more formal attire...I think you are treated more professionally...I know I treat men in suits and cuffs differently...

    Let me guess you are one of those ugly sex in the city wannabes? I am a "damn woman" and I wear them everyday to work. I am also neither a "homo or old lady". I am 32 years old with a killer body and great legs that i love to accentuate. You on the other hand must be one of those fat guy reps they are talking about on another thread? The new fall fashion is a more refined professional look with pantyhose so you better get used to it. They make my legs look great and make people like you jealous.

    You are obviously ugly. Or at least your legs are or you wouldn't wear hose. The true fashion is leaning towards beautiful but BARE legs.

    Sorry for you, nappy-legged-ho!

    I'd say it's obviously a male manager.

    Check your calendars fellas, professional women haven't been wearing hose in the summer since the mid 90s. It's not more professional -- hose is frumpy, hot, impractical, and completely out of style. Furthermore, in a, um, shall we say, non-recrational use, well it's just flat out ugly.

    The real question is ... why on earth does pharma management continue to promote this assanine expectation?! Seriously? Somebody in management tell me ... why? Isn't there something, anything, more important you can and should be focused upon?

    Well, we would love to focus on sales but, since you don't actually sell anything....

    Cute. So tell me ... assuming that's true ... just how is that sad fact not a greater reflection on pharma's piss poor and absolutely worthless management?

    I appreciate you for illustrating my point, of pharma management's manddenly antiquated 1950's approach to all things, but I'd rather you answer my original question, so I'll repeat it.

    What's up with the OCD about (of all things) pantyfrickinghose? Get over it already.

    Right, it is all management's fault. Come on, have you ever done anything but pharma? Pretty much everyone in every industry thinks their boss\management sucks.

    I didn't say anything was "management's fault," do you have a serious reading comprehension problem?

    I asked a simple question about pharma's bizarre expectation about wearing "pantyhose," and suggested that IF the previous claim that reps don't sell anything was true, it begs the question: what is pharma management managing? And how well can they possibly be doing it? It's not my contention that pharma managment stinks, it's the reality that your own question posed. Get it now?

    Yes, I have been outside of pharma and have a place to land after pharma. I may be a rep, but suprisingly, I'm not an idiot.

    So, please, somebody in management, tell me, I'm begging you ... what's up with the desperate attempt to turn back time whole decades by continuing to promote this completely assinine expectation? I really wonder how people can become relatively successful in business and remain so completely focused on trivial crap like this.

    So, tell me, you ever been out of pharma? For your sake, I hope so.

    First of all, it doesn't "beg the question"; I believe the phrase you were looking for was "it raises the question". Begging the question refers to a particular logical fallacy where one attempts to prove an assertion using circular logic. Now, I know what you meant, and normally I wouldn't say anything; I only point it out so that in the future, if you choose to comment on a poster's reading skills, you might be able to avoid looking like an idiot while doing so.

    Secondly, perhaps you are correct, it was somewhat of an overreaction on my part regarding management. It's just that it gets so old hearing over and over on here about how pharma management is so bad, as if pharma management somehow has some sort of exclusive rights to incompetence, or that or that no one in any other industry doesn't also think the same thing of their management.

    In any case though, what does management even have to do with it? The OP mentioned wearing hose as a personal choice, and every post after that (up until yours of course), considered this a personal choice. Are you claiming that your manager requires you to wear it? If the answer is no, then what the hell does management have to do with this discussion? If the answer is yes, then just wear the fucking thing and shut up. Or show up in jeans and a teeshirt, whatever. Is it really so much to ask that you look professional? Companies choose to portray a particular image. If you work at Best Buy, that happens to be a blue shirt with a yellow sticker on it. If you work in pharma, you have to dress up a little more.

    Yes, it's required. It's one of a hundred absurd and uninforced rules.

    And since it's uninforced, I'll continue not to wear them. The question, again, is why so many companies and managers trying to enforce an outdated dress code?

    So, you call me out on "begs the question," and you actually thing pantyhose makes a damn bit of difference in sales. Hmm. Again, I'll beg you to check your calendar, and to try, if you can, to focus on more meaningful things. You might become a more effective manager that way.

    You're welcome.

    What you just said makes no sense. First you say that it is an uninforced rule, and because of that you don't wear them. Then you ask why companies and managers enforce (or try to enforce) the rule. Either it is an enforced rule at your company or it isn't. Again though, what does this have to do with the OP's personal choice to wear them?

    Do I think pantyhose makes a "damn bit of difference in sales"? No. As long as my reps look professional, I don't care one way or the other. In fact, to be perfectly honest, as long as they are meeting their numbers, I don't care at ALL what they wear. Shit, if you tell me your docs like shorts and a teeshirt, I might be skeptical, but if your numbers back up that assertion, well okay. Don't let HO find out, but I don't care. With that being said, if you have a company rule, and it actually is enforced, AND you choose to ignore it, you are being foolish. If you can present a reasonable explanation to your manager, in a diplomatic way, why you should be exempt from a particular rule, AND you have the numbers to back it up, no reasonable manager is going to argue with you. After all, we don't get paid based on dress code compliance. If however you simply choose to thumb your nose at authority, well, you aren't going to get very far. That isn't a pharma thing, that is a corporate America thing.

    I think the OP is a trolling male manager. No woman who's 28 is wearing hose in the summer voluntarily. If she exists, more power to her and her idol Angela Lansbury.

    Glad you're sounding reasonable here, but your fear of the HO "finding out" illustrates the absurdity that I'm railing about.

    I still haven't gotten a single answer as to why this outdated and unenforceable expectation is so widely promoted. Let .... it ... go ....
