Let's all be unethical!

Because of Holly's inability to provide even the slightest modicum of productivity at work yesterday due to her tremendous hangover, it is imperative that today we discuss ethical standards. What on earth are ethics and why do we have them? Well, the good folks at Miriam Webster define ethic as the following:

1plural but sing or plural in constr : the discipline dealing with what is good and bad and with moral duty and obligation2 a: a set of moral principles : a theory or system of moral values —often used in plural but singular or plural in construction bplural but sing or plural in constr : the principles of conduct governing an individual or a group c: a guiding philosophy d: a consciousness of moral importance 3plural : a set of moral issues or aspects (as rightness)

To us, it seems that ethics are just a way to prevent us from living our lives the way we want to live them. They’re frequently cited by those who possess more than you or by those who are afraid that you might be squeezing more enjoyment from the fruit of life than they are.

We at tresvite say, go ahead. Be unethical. Embrace your unethicalness. Slack off at work. Take that calculator home with you. Sleep with your coworker. Get too drunk and make someone else pay for it. Our stance is if it would only hurt someone if they find out, well, make sure they don’t find out!

generally if you think you should stay home from work, you probably should.

OH MY LORD. I AM QUITE HUNGOVER. And severely regretting my decision to come in this morning. It ranks up there with other massively bad life decisions such as a) majoring in liberal arts and b) pretty much the years of 2005-early 2007. I am definitely wearing a plaid skirt, with tights and I did have on doc martens before I switched to heels- um, 1997 called, it needs its outfit back.
