Mike Byers Help: Wearing hats or caps ; Manners? (108* d) RE: Help: Wearing hats or caps ; Manners? 26 Jun 01

Here in Indiana many men seem to be born with "gimme hats" firmly attached to their heads; they never take 'em off and as far as I know are buried with 'em. If they're going to a fancy restaurant (one where most men wear a coat and tie) they'll usually wear a clean one, though. My group played for a wedding a few weeks ago and, sure enough, the "gimme hat" crew was in evidence, and evidently the clean hat rule doesn't apply to weddings. So I suppose what in my youth was considered bad manners is now considered entirely acceptable. Things change, I know, but I'd feel better if they'd at least wear a dark-colored "gimme hat" at funerals.
