Look me up and down like that again, fool. I dare you.

“I’m sorry Miss, this airline lounge only accepts business casual attire,” the man working the lounge at the Brisbane International Airport said.

I gave him that same once over that he had just given me.

“I own a gym. I have been traveling for the past 30 hours to get here. How would you like me to dress?”

And then I smiled sweetly, “Are women still supposed to wear dress suits with shoulder pads? If I’m wearing yoga pants but I’m someone’s wife, does that make it OK? I know I look like I’m 12 but, I have the same airline status as that guy just walked in here.”

He stuttered an apology and handed me my free drink voucher.

That’s what I thought. Bloody Mary’s at 6:45am. Who’s laughing now?
