    No one asked the guy to wear makeup on a daily basis. He was asked to have it applied during training in order to understand how it feels during application and wear. It's not an unreasonable request.

    Disagree, Matt. If he's not going to wear it on a daily basis, and their reasoning is that he's supposed to know how it feels -- how's he supposed to remember how it feels six months from the time they had him do it? Not to mention, cosmetics are constantly changing; six months from the time he was in the training, he may not even be using the same cosmetics they wanted him to wear.

    It served no purpose in furthering his training.

    We can agree to disagree on that point then.

    However, I believe that if he was not willing to meet the jobs demands, then he should find another place of employment. Just like I don't expect a business to meet the demands of any customer (read the homosexual wedding cases), I also don't expect business to have to cater to the demands of its employees.

    When I was about 8 years old I put a metal butter knife in an electrical outlet. Likewise, I think that if I put on false eyelashes, lipstick, and blush I would probably remember how it felt for the rest of my life.
