Assuming you are not an on-site customer service kind of geek...I'm 
not saying that it *should* matter ('cause I don't think it should).
But in reality, it *does* matter, since the world is not a perfect place 
that we geeks get to run (more's the pity).

Since reality is there, you have to cope with it.  *Especially* now with
the current job market.</geek hat>

Because I don't know what every customers will tolerate in my store, I
have to worry about my employees' (and my) appearance.  Better safe
than lose a sale.</biz owner hat>

Audience analysis, pure and simple.  Tailor your message to those you
are talking to.
