I agree with you 150%.  Since when did it become acceptable to be a filthy slob in a nice restaurant?  Men/boys should NOT wear hats indoors.  One exception - if they want to wear the baseball caps in a restaurant, save it for McDonalds.  I am disgusted with the disrespectful, "it's all about me" attitudes in this country. 


@Tiki Mommy   So then would it be all about you?

 

Referring to other people as filthy slobs kind of implies you expect the world to rotate around your perception of how it should be.

 

Just sayin'.

I wear hats frequently, and generally do not remove them simply to dine.  Does it matter what kind of hat?  I don't wear ball caps (they are not flattering on me).

Re: It's A Small Thing But So Annoying

Accepting people who are all different, who act different, dress different, I'm all onboard.

Heck, is it ok to just prefer not to see hats?

I'm ok with that too. Or not if it doesn't bother you.

Saying people are a certain way cause theyd prefer no hats in restaurants is just as ridiculous as anything else that's judgemental.

We''re just talking about dang hats!

It's ok to express an opinion either way.

I like how my father was and that's why i feel the same. But I'm used to seeing hats on and I'm not going to judge the person under it either! I just think its nice when they remove them, that's all.

Re: It's A Small Thing But So Annoying

I'm wondering what classy restuarant the OP is talking about that caters to baseball cap wearing crowd?  Is all the time or one time?  I reside in a large metropolitan area and the better restuarants I've been in- I've not seen the phenomenon.

@Sweetbay magnolia  men and women who have cancer or other medical issues are permitted to wear a hat anywhere, anytime.  The following applies to all others.

Re: It's A Small Thing But So Annoying

When I go out to eat at a nice restaurant, my FOCUS is on the atmosphere, the people I'm dining with, the food, and the service, NOT on what other people are wearing.

 

I could care less if men are wearing hats while dining.

Casual restaurants and diners hats being worn is perfectly fine.  But in a fine dining establishment with table cloths and such, NO.  Just no! Some of the nicer restaurants have dress codes.  Time and place for everything and I say no hats worn in finer restaurants.

Re: It's A Small Thing But So Annoying

Funny, I was raised in a religion that hats were required to be worn by women in church, but men were forbidden to.  Now that's all been done away with.

 

We do live in a much more casual world today and as long as a person is clean, neat and polite in a social situation, I don't give a hoot what they wear.

 

Now if someone comes out in public wearing pants on their heads, I might give it an extra look.

Re: It's A Small Thing But So Annoying

I think what was respectable years ago is changing and it's about time. My husband wears his hat while dining, we both wear casual attire to church, weddings, etc. There is so many other more important things to complain about and this isn't one of them.

Re: It's A Small Thing But So Annoying

Just that is the way it is, I understand to take a hat off but we live in a different world.
