Unemployed...so either I'm very comfortable at home or not at all. Jury is still out on that.

I usually wear shorts and a t-shirt. Sometimes I'll wear something with buttons on it but not very often. So, pretty comfortable. The only way I could be more comfortable is if I could just stay home and lounge around on the couch.

I can wear just about anything to work (except flip flops or pj's), but mainly wear jeans or capris and a tshirt. I listen to my ipod all day long, and read on my tablet when I am between assignments and projects (most of the time). I am mostly very bored with my job and spend way too much money shopping. Now all we need is a place to nap, but that has been vetoed by the guy in the corner office.

After the boss leaves is when I get my real work done. I take off my shoes turn on my sub, and turn on Chronix. http://www.chronixradio.com/ (blocked by policy but there are ways around that). Category: Streaming Media/MP3
Most of the day is Chronix and sub off, shoes on. They do not mind it, I just feel it is inappropriate.

It's not too bad since we had a successful departmental mutiny to take ties off the dress code.

I am in a uniform part of the day, polo or button shirt and dress pants. It saves on buying work clothes and choosing what to wear. Part of the day I generally wear a sweatshirt and the same pants and then switch shirts when I am waiting on customers. Overall not to bad clothing wise. I would like a recliner and entertainment system for breaks but that is not going to happen. I bring my own entertanment and sit in a office chair for breaks or go out of office.

@coreyking: I is looking....have been since June. Put in some apps and have found myself in the "we hired someone else" category.

Oh well...

Appreciate the thought!

Wear a uniform, so that is comfy. Boss is ALWAYS cold, has even entered the dishroom (far from her) to turn off fan. Had to finally tell her hands off unless she plans on washing the pans.

Business casual, relatively strict but somewhat loosened in the last couple of years. No music, headsets, etc. In theory no web-surfing, but in practice that's fairly loose provided one uses common sense and avoids sites which may be hinky. (I stick to news and financial sites.) Having a cell phone turned on is literally a walked-out-the-door offense. Until a few years ago the dress code specified that all employees are expected to wear appropriate underwear; I always wondered whose job it was to check on it.

As for making it more comfortable, it would be nice to be able to use personal heaters or fans. Just like every other worksite in the world, it's always either too hot or too cold, and we're prohibited from bringing in anything that needs to be plugged in.

@magic cave: That always throws me about Florida....heaters? Seriously? I know that it gets cool there but it's not the picture that my mind paints. :) Back on topic, I wear a t-shirt, jeans and tennis shoes. It's about as casual as you can get.

Our dress code is casual business. So while we can't wear jeans or t-shirts, we are able to wear polos, casual slacks and skirts. It could be more comfortable, or more uncomfortable. It is almost always too cold for me in my office, but I am allowed to have a little heater so that's good. I am allowed to eat or drink anything I want in my office. We can listen to music if we wish, I am able to close my door to shut out other people's music as I prefer a quiet work environment. I have an enormous office with one wall all windows, so I am able to keep the HATED overhead lights off and work by natural light. All that's about to change though as they are tearing down our building and cramming us two to a cubicle in a rat-infested building. So my comfort level at the office is about to plummet dramatically.

@jsimsace: You're probably thinking of South Florida: palm trees, South Beach, Miami Vice, teeny bikinis on TV shows, etc.

I'm in North Florida, which is more or less like South Georgia. Going to be about 35 tonight, with frost in the morning. My office building's thermostat will not be set right, so it'll be about 68 when I get there tomorrow. We occasionally consider building bonfires under our desks to keep warm. Some of my co-workers wear scarves and fingerless gloves, with fleece blankies across their laps. I manage with just a light-weight jacket.
