Dear Hive Brain

Poll #16656 Skinned Knees and Skirts?
Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 10

Dear hive brain, I skinned my knee and it looks kind of nasty. Is wearing an above-the-knee skirt to work okay with a skinned knee, or should I wear pants for a couple of weeks?

Wear pants for a couple of weeks to hide it.

Skirts are fine, it's a badge of honor.

I have a different answer which I will clarify in the comments.

[Clarification: I use liquid bandaids, so it'll be covered, but I'm wondering if it'll look disgusting to co-workers.]

If you want to wear skirts but you're worried about blemishes and it isn't too hot you could also wear tights or something?

I've never used liquid bandaids, so I don't really have a clue what it'd look like... Personally I'd prefer skirt, unless it really does look somehow disgusting even to me. Then again, I'd probably not want to cover it with extra cloth.

It'll heal faster not rubbing against fabric, I think.

I think skirts would be fine as far as acceptability, but I also think people will be inclined to curiously ask what happened and does it still hurt and etc. because they'll be concerned you have an injury, if it's really obvious or angry looking. So if you're okay with dealing with that the first day, go ahead, but if you think it'd annoy you maybe do the pants thing?
