Manners maketh the man, or so the saying goes. You could probably get by without them but, even if you were perfect in every other way, ill manners would mean you wouldn't get very far. I believe the same is true of accessories; they maketh the outfit.

Why should women waste their precious time putting on mascara and foundation and shaving their legs? Who has that kind of excess time? Personally, my goal is to get to work as quickly as possible in the morning and to start applying myself to the tasks at hand.
