Sweaty Grossness

DC has a lot to be proud of – awesome monuments, all the really-streamlined super-good domestic and international policy we generate (gag), and the like. But really, DC has interesting culture, intriguing towns and neighborhoods, a clean mass transit system, and good shopping. Basically, we have a lot to be thankful for and the list could go on.

We have been, however, given somewhat of an award of an odd kind: the 39th Sweatiest City in the U.S. Sure, Old Spice gave the award and they probably just want guys to think to use more of their manly-smelling deodorant. I do have to say that I’ve seen more sweat bombs walking around drenched from the few-block walk from the Metro to their office than in many other cities I’ve visited. Maybe it’s the rushing nature, maybe the level of stress the typically DC worker endures.

Regardless, get yer Old Spice and hit the street this hot sweaty summer…

    I think the worst of these are the old man sweats. The guy, who’s maybe 50 or so, in a three piece suit. Yeah, full on pit stains to his belt while he’s carrying his jacket in 90 degree weather.

    I really think anyone who wears a suit in the summer here either is completely insane or ought to get a medal or something.

    Tom, I did it for an interview once.

    Summers here suck, big time, and yet our businesses and agencies continue to insist on wearing business attire… Suits in 100 degree weather with 100% humidity do NOT mix well, I can personally attest to that fact. Never helps when the cab driver decides he’s going to experience the glorious heat for himself and decides to forego the use of air conditioning… ugh!
