Incredible arrogance, one poor guy who in his normal life wears a cap, and if I am correct removed it when asked. He took the hint…..BIG CLUE

So what happens next, having accepted his wrong doing he is now so embarrassed that he does not feel he can come back to that table or be part of that dining room crowd.... again.

Yeah….. great victory, he may have actually been a really nice, honest person. But driven away through embarrassment of that night. Think about it.

Nice one folks, no victory there

Obviously the guy felt embarrassed & didn't want to come back.
Or his lack of re-appearance suggests he only planned on coming into the dining room one night. Oh, but that would be an assumtion, wouldn't it?

You are right!

This thing started with a person wearing a cap into the dining room and evolved into NASCAR.

David is an excellent driver.

Default Wearing a baseball hat at table

Wearing a hat to the dining room shows the person has no manners, as for having a medical condition, even though he had lost all his hair to cancer treatments my husband did not wear a hat to the dining room at any meal. Yes he was bald but so were a couple of very famous film stars.
On a HAL very long cruise earlier this year, I saw the ultimate in bad manners. It was formal night, she wore a heavily beaded gown, he wore a regular tux and a Very Battered Dirty Baseball cap! There was hair stiicking out from under it so he did have hair. Only wish the Maitre D had done something.

I was looking at the grade 12 catalouge of formal wear for Grad 2006 (I am a teacher) and I came across a very interesting design it was a western cut tux with jacket, vest, formal shirt and a modified western tie that are to be worn with blue jeans. Would that meet the dress code?

My personal view of this is I have better things to do on a cruise than worry about what other people are wearing nor do I really care. I rent my tux I look good thats all that matters to me.

Maybe it's just me, but I did not assume the OP's final comment (it was a wonderful cruise) was necessarily related to the gentleman not returning to the table.

As for ladies' hats, I'm known at our church as "the hat lady" because of my proclivity for wearing hats - love 'em. I don't cruise with them because it's too bulky and since I always do all carry on it just won't work.
But it is a societal norm that ladies are permitted to wear hats indoors. Small consolation for all that we gave up in the name of equality!

Let's see, it is appropriate for women to wear hats indoors, but not men.
It is also appropriate for men to put the seat back down after using the you know what.

Would it be considerate for women to raise the seat after using
the same apparatus.

Oh, my goodness!!!!!

If Paul B. put the time into dressing that he puts into defending people's make-believe "right" to be ill-mannered slobs, he'd probably look pretty sharp.

Paul B, Do you like people coming into you house and looking in your toilet. When you are finished it should be CLOSED! Simple, don't take brains for that one!

I dress as I dress, and I am happy with it.

We don't allow people to come into our house and look at our toilet.

You have to keep the lid down, so the snakes that get into the sewer system don't come up and into your bathroom!

Maybe it's time for men to demand equality and be allowed to wear hats while dining! If it's OK for women, it's OK for men too.
Then we'll move to a debate about the swimming pool. If men don't have to wear tops, then women shouldn't have to.

As far as a person with a "medical condition," if that were the case, the person owes no one an explanation. It's a private matter.

Wouldn't the entire dress problem be solved if we just all went naked ?

I do take exception to dining naked on formal nights. Men should wear a tie and women a hat on such nghts.

Haaa--- but even with everyone dining naked in order to avoid dress codes fuss, would those with scars be denied entry, as some scars would, no doubt, be offensive to some. Hairy chested people, especially ladies with hairy chests, might be considered offensive to some as they slurp their soup.

Maybe dining naked isn't the answer after all !!

Do you want everyone to go blind? As much as I enjoyed my dinner companions, I sooooo don't want to see them naked.
