Dads, the next time your heading to a get-together with your wife and you’re not sure if it is a dress up event or more casual, try this. One of you dress casually and the other person dress more formally. That way –

1. At least one of you will be dressed appropriately.

2. When the other people see how you’ve dressed they’ll smile and think “Oh, that’s Scott! He’s always dressed up.”

At the worst they’ll think you’re a rebel. And being perceived as a rebel is better than being perceived as ignorant, right?
