[ExI] A fly on the wall

In 1968 I had my first teaching job at a small liberal arts college.  About
halfway through the year the dean called me in and told me that a student
had complained about me. Oops.  Not a good start to my first job.

Problem:  I did not wear a tie. The Dean said wear one.  He smiled just a
tiny bit.  I did for several months and then never again.  Can you imagine
a student now complaining about it?  Nobody complained that I filled the
room with smoke.

Wearing black nylon socks worn up nearly to the knee with shorts is a
fashion statement in Florida retirement communities.
