There are two women where I work that dress in either loose-fitting revealing clothing or skin-tight shit. They're both pretty hot, but goddamnit it makes it hard to do my job. :p

Not complaining, just a mere observation.

They had obviously just been to the beach, but don't you think its appropriate to put on shorts or something? It literally looks like they are just walking around in their panties.

Sorry, no pics (yes I fail), they are already sitting down.
Bah, it's Panera...it's a glorified MacDonalds. We're not talking about a fine dining establishment here.

This is hardly post worthy...especially without pics.

Isn't that why cameras are so popular in the Asian culture? :laugh:

I've seen girls walking around in shirts and bikini bottoms, quite often around here. The difference here is that the shirt covers really only their top, what's it called, a 'cutoff shirt' or something. It really not covering much of anything :) Usually the shirt covers at least their belly and SOME of their bottoms. These shirts barely cover their knockers.

And yes, the view was indeed great, I just found it funny that they would walk around wearing it. :beer:
ok so long as you are withdrawing your complaint...we pronounce you AT hero of the day for having such a luxurious lifestyle where seeing bikini clad women during lunch is a regular occurence! :beer: indeed.
I don't! I wanna kick his ass, take his job, and sit in Panera eating a !@#$%y sammich and watching hot bikini clad women come off the beach!!


:beer:

Considering OP is in Florida, somewhere near a beach, I think flip-flops + bikini + shirt is perfectly appropriate attire for a non-service restaurant. Sure, they'd get strange looks here in Denver, but it's just not the same environment.

Dude, you live in FL? So do I. I grew up around Clearwater which is a beach town like so many others in this state. What you just described is considered very appropriate in towns like that because of how common it is. That kind of thing has been happening in these towns for over 50 years now. Get over it.

Let them be, they're comfortable and enjoying the weather. Where is this, exactly? If it's a warm/tropics area, I'd be even more understanding.

Man, you'd "love" living in a country where nudity is commonplace at the beach...

Those proper attire signs are just to prevent the umm.. unhealthy-looking folks from coming in half naked.

what if the person was male at 250 pounds, not wearing a t-shirt, with a bottom that is half covered by his gut?

How would you have felt about two guys in speedos?

I don't have any problem watching teh hotties in bikinis walk around beach towns...after all, they are BEACH TOWNS. As others have said, it might be inappropriate in downtown NYC or Chicago, but not someplace that attracts tourists for the beaches...

I guess I'm old school, because I'm CONSTANTLY amazed at how the youngers are dressing to go to college. Maybe you don't need to be "dressed up" for school, hell, when it's warm enough, I wear <gasp> jean shorts, t-shirt, and sandals or flip-flops, but it seems like 1/3 of the young folks I see are wearing what could easily be considered pajamas, another 1/3 wear the odd-ball "goth" garb, while the remaining 1/2 (thanks Yogi Berra :D ) wear a mix of more normal attire...

WTF makes people think school is a place where you go dressed like a pig or like you just crawled out of bed?
