Summer casual, not by choice
I remember interviewing the general counsel of IBM/Latin America some years ago, a mother of three. She told me a story about hurting her leg over the weekend, getting caught up in getting her kids to school Monday morning, then limping onto a flight for work. When she finally sat down on the plane, she realized it wasn't her leg that was the problem. Beneath her pin-striped slacks, she had one high-heel and one flat. In this balancing act of work and family, mistakes happen to the best of us, right?
