Violated Social Norm My social norm was a day at work for me. I currently work at Verizon Wireless as sales consultants. We have a dress code which is, dress shoes, either black or dark blue, casual button down shirt with a tie, name badge which you wear on your left said. Today I decided to do things a little different instead of the black or brown dress shoes I decided to wear my new pair of nike Foamposite which wear pink and black, that came out the day before which wear now sold out ,A pair of black Levi jeans with a black polo shirt with no tie. I also did not bring my work badge. My hypothesis was that majority of the people around my age 16-25 in-group would think I’m stylish and would think I dressed nice because the shoes I have on is one of the hottest shoes on the market. I also predicted that my two-coworker will like them which is Indian the other is a cushion girl name Liz .The younger women around 20 to mid-twenty will improve of my dress code and the older women ages 50 and older my not. The teenage girls will like it because the style is in and because my shoes are pink and that normal one of women favorite color. The older customers my consider the shoes to be ugly or out of style because they came out along time ago different color know they came back out. I predicted my manager will flip out and probably send me home. My manager is around forty years of age almost my dad age, he may consider my dress code un professional and not acceptable. Also what he consider is fashionable is different from fashion today. So as I arrived to the store, the store was busy it was just me and my Indian coworker it was on a Monday around 11:00 am. My shift was from 11-9 that day. Monday are normally slow we don’t get that much traffic just repeated customers and a lot of bill paying. Traffic does start coming in until about 3 then it slows down picks back up until 6 people start getting off work eight maybe one customer at the most. Today it was three people working today me, my manger(Marcus ), vik(India co-worker) and Liz female coworker age 25.My manger doesn’t get it until about one. So it was just me and my India co-worker until 1. As soon as I walked in my co-worker acknowledge me shook my hands said nice shoes ,that Is a nice color but you know our manager not going to agree with that. MY coworker then ask me where did I get them from so he can possible get a pair. So as time went on we had couple customer come in two young men maybe in the twelve grade in high-school came in the store as soon as they came in before I could greet them and ask what brought them in they both look down at my shoes and ask me to left up my pants leg so they can see my shoes. As I left up my pants leg they both where amused and said they were about to get them but they wear sold out .Then ask me did I want to sell them. After that conversation I finally help them out with what they where in the store for which was to get cases for their phone. Next , their was two couples come in older cacashion couple around earlier sixties. They came in to pay their their bill. They have been in a few times but Liz normally always assist them. As I assisted them with a payment I overheard the men ask his wife why am I wearing tennis shoes at work and everybody else have a dress shoe it always black people who do ignorant stuff ,that another reason I hate black people. Before even knowing me the men stereotyping and also was prejudice towards me. In chapter 15 we talk about prejudice which is any negative attitude towards a certain race or ethnicity. Then after the couple left came along a young lady with her boyfriend which was around 23 -24 and her boyfriend who was around 35. She came in the store to upgrade her device, while she was upgrade she looked down at my shoes and said those are cute. Her boyfriend comment and said I’m sorry I just can’t wear any pick shoes. Then the girl comment said, right “they would only be cute on…
required? Some parents say yes but students say no. the reason why parents say yes is because sometimes the children get pick on a lot about how they wear they clothes and what they should wear. Others believe that kids should have the freedom to dress however they want. After strongly believe that uniforms should not be required in school.
Some parents think it’s a great thing for children to wear uniform because now no one would have to be picking on or laugh at about what they wear. Without…

they may not be able to wear them at their school. Public schools have begun to crack down on the dress code, causing students to have to ditch half their wardrobe. The public school dress code is questionable in that is the wardrobe of students really affecting the way they learn and act, are they fair, and are some of the codes really necessary.
School officials believe that the way students dress affect their demeanor in class. However, if a girl is sitting at her desk taking notes on her teachers…

We start off the new school year with a new dress code, every year they change it and no big deal it gets changed, but this time they went to far. Our children go to school and these people watch them and for every little violation they are taken from class and sent to the office until someone brings them a change of clothes. They cannot return until up to code. For exsample a girl came to school and her shirt had a little white stipe on the arm she got in school suspension same with my child, she…
Dress Code Change
I would not like to have the new dress code change about if we should wear Uniforms to school. First of all if we do change the dress code and have to wear uniforms through K-8 grade would cost more money to buy the uniforms and get it in right sizes. You would be thinking we could just buy them our self, but if we do buy it by our self we wouldn’t know how it is suppose to look like or where could we get it. Second of all if you dice to change the dress code and make us wear uniforms…
