I'm Just Too Popular

This summer I'm teaching a M/W class and a T/R class, both evening classes, and one student told me last night (my first night) that she's in BOTH my classes.

I was super-annoyed about this because it means I can't repeat outfits -- it's not like I'm getting dressed to lecture until right before I go, and I was TOTALLY planning on repeats.

Just tell her on the first day that you have an overnight dry cleaner on retainer. ;)

Tell you were raised European. All of my relatives often wear outfits two or three days in a row. It is considered wasteful to wash clothes that don't really need it. The first time I was in Europe, they found it unbelievable that Americans only wore clothes once before washing them. Maybe you could work that into the class lectures??

OK - too early for commenting.

"Tell HER you were . . . ."

Hmmm....you could just invest in a couple of extremely unique accessories... maybe a feather boa? one of those hats topped with fake fruit? And rotate those, then no one will even notice the rest of your outfit is the same.

That certainly is a dilemma no man would face.

Yeah, we men are such clothes horses - we sometimes wear more than one outfit in a single day!

It's a summer class. T-shirts it is.

Tell her you were just taking a que from your students. Or, tell her you are going "green" and trying to save on putting synthetic petrochemicals that are hard on the environment. Conventional bleaches are made from chlorine, a known carcinogen according to the US Environmental Protection Agency.
