Elegant night on Carnival Splendour last year.  Daughter took a nice photo of me, then she looked closer at the table behind me…6D4FBDBF-36F5-4183-BD7D-7C0ED9688389.thumb.jpeg.cf6ed5d1cf413facf9e0bd3c519d4318.jpeg

 

 

You need that editing software that finds the best image and adds stilettos.

lady behind you looks like she is wearing a nice dress - my guess is she had slip on or slide on type shoes and had just slid them off under the table while she is sitting down (Ive been know to do that )- not that she wasnt wearing any.

??? I don't see a lady or a dress.

It is a bit hard to tell but looking at the clothes, they look like a shirt with shorts, and legs and feet look male to me. However, they may have had scuffs or thongs on that have been slipped off, there seems to be something under the table.

I consider the Cabin to be my home, the corridor the street and the rest of the ship public areas, shopping mall, restaurants, public pool, casino, etc.

Therefore, I generally treat most of the ship as being out in public. I can never understand how some people don't and also allow young kids to be unsupervised throughtout, especially late at night. they wouldn't do it at home and allow their kids to wander the streets and bars? or would they?

Not a lady.  A male and I edited so his face is not seen.

My pet hate was a dude who wore a cowboy hat to dinner in the main dining room on Grand Princess each night last month.  Never took it off.  Not sure where he tied his horse up.  His lady wore normal clothes.

In fact I don't like seeing men keeping their hats on at dinner at all especially the ones who wear baseball caps backwards.  Guess I am old fashioned.

Or come to think of it why people are wearing parkas on formal nights in the dining rooms.

He would have tied it up along side the ship. Good thing it was a Seahorse.

When I see a guy with a hat inside, I just presume that the rug is lifting and it is to save embarrassment. Just a bit of empathy 😉

Ok, a man then.

 

But my point is the same, probably had slip on type shoes he just slid off under the table while sitting down.  

I don't see an issue with that, nobody is looking under the table at your feet.

 Or could be they have skin cancers or something on their head. 

 

If someone is wearing a hat all the time, I give benifit of the doubt that they have a personal reason for doing so.

My pop wore a hat to cover (and protect) his bald patch. It left his head the moment he walked inside, let alone waiting for a venue that requires hats/caps to be removed.  Anything is possible, but for most I have met, it is purely about modesty.

My golf club ..Catalina has gone to the pack, baseball caps allowed front or rear facing. However the good old Rissole , soldiers club bans hats and caps, bit of decorum in the forum.

25 years ago I walked into a club and I forgot to take it off. A staff member approached me and asked to take it off, which I did. They were shocked, 10 minutes later the manager asked me to put my hat back on. Lol.

 

P.s I had lost my hair and colour due to chemo, it was a bit freaky.

Looking at the latest crime statistics involving teens it seems some parents have little interest or control over their children.

Regardless of most, my point was we never know anyone's personal story so best to give benifit of doubt. Like you said, anything is possible

 

Like Miccanberra above who had lost hair from chemo.

My dad, the public servant, wore that as his summer uniform for years - although more of a long socks and sandles kind of person.

Yes the shorts and long socks were quite the thing in the 70s and 80s. It was more the short socks and sandals with shorts which was not a good look.

I agree. Short socks and sandals a no, no. Long socks, tailored shorts and leather shoes looked good back then.
