Why such a hate for the pants?

So it might be the "spring forward" this morning, but I seem to have my cranky (long) pants on today.

Surfing the boards lately and see, yet again, posts wanting to find loopholes for the dress code for a la carte restaurants.

"Oh but they're 'dressy' shorts", or longer shorts, or shorter longs, you get the idea.

Guys - its an HOUR maybe hour and a half. Put some pants on.

Would you go to a nice restaurant in your home town in shorts for that special night? Right...

Make an evening of it! Come up from the beach or pool, have a shower, a nap, maybe a snuggle get DRESSED for dinner.

Reservation for 730 or 800? PERFECT! Head down to the lobby bar, have a mojito, or a glass of bubbly. Tell your partner, wife, pookie-bear he/she looks AMAZING in that outfit with a bit of a tan.

Its an HOUR...

A pair of Dockers (khakis) in your bag won't take up much room, and you can wear them with sandals if you like.

Put some effort into the evening. Make a special evening out of your special dinner. She's worth it, no?

If its really going to shorten your life if you have to wear pants to dinner, hit the buffet.

Thanks for your time...now go put some pants on for crying out loud.

Geez, you want them to not wear their muscle shirts AND their short pants? What are you, some type of troublemaker?

Why such a hate for the shorts?

I agree that if there is a dress code for the ala cartes, you should follow it. But not everybody wants to get all gussied up every night. I'm glad I have a wife that likes to be comfortable and likes me the same way.

My sentiments entirely ................... In fact I just can't understand why people would NOT want to dress for dinner. I love getting all 'dolled up' (even if we are just going to eat in the buffet) and my husband wears long trousers every evening, regardless of which restaurant we are visiting.

For us it is all part of the holiday.

Enjoy !!

Amen to that.

Someone will be along shortly to say it's not their fault the resort does not enforce their rules.
