I always feel for the folks that are behind the counter at the local drug store. They are required to wear medical attire, which for them is the white lab coats that you see each and every one of them wearing each and every day. The same old, same old day in and day out.
Now there are pros and cons for everything and of course the pro for this issue is that you don’t have to use your imagination nor do you need to have your thinking cap on and in working order so that you can keep up with the dress code and the latest fashions. You don’t have to spend a lot of money for work clothes, which is always a plus. Clothes are never cheap enough and it takes a lot of time shopping, comparing, matching and everything else that goes along with that task.
Anyway, I just wish that these good people were able to wear some of the more fashionable scrub sets that you see more and more folks in the medical field wearing, which I think is just great. I’ve seen some pretty neat medical uniforms (scrubs) in the doctor’s and dentist’s offices that I frequent through out the year. The pediatricians have a great selection to choose from and I really think that by wearing these less intimidating clothing items makes a bit of a difference for a good amount of kids that spend so much time at doctors. And anything that makes that trip any easier is a good thing, wouldn’t you agree?
