Wow, there are some amazing comments from both sides of the issue. I'm throwing my comments on the side of the employee who attempted to educate this person on her very inappropriate attire. God bless him or her.
I don't know about Kyla Ebbert's upbringing, but frankly I didn't need anyone telling me that when out in public, you don't display yourself like a freak show. I was very heartened to read that someone was trying to improve public perceptions of what is or is not acceptable. Yes, we have the freedom to dress as we want to. But the problem is, society is bursting with pathetic, attention-starved individuals who keep pushing the envelope and getting away with it. Women who dress like her and boys walking around with their pants hanging around their hips as opposed to around their waist and we have to be subjected to that? And the rest of us have to just shake our head in bemusement because "it's none of your business to tell me how to dress", "you're not the boss of me", "there's no fashion gestapo", and so on and so forth. Why on God's green earth would you not like to wear a nice skirt (or pants) and blouse or in the case of men, a polo shirt and dockers?
What's really sad is this bimbo probably won't even learn from this and apparently wasn't so badly embarrassed and humiliated that she didn't go parading herself on national TV.
I fail to understand why anyone would want to exhibit themselves in something I wouldn't put on my dog. It's ridiculous. So I'm glad your employee stepped up and attempted to do something and hope that there was no reprimand.
And I also hate that you felt that an apology was in order. I like the fact that someone at your organization tried to make a stand for the betterment of everyone's traveling conditions at the risk of hurting one person's feelings. Maybe the next time she flies, she'll think twice about what she walks out of the house wearing. Oh, wait ... no, she won't. She already got away with it and got her 15 minutes of fame.
