Average attractiveness

The very first thought on my mind when I woke up today was wondering if we have some sort of social imperative to make ourselves as physically attractive as the average of our peers, since they're the ones who have to see us, and they've already gone to the effort. To be less attractive would therefore be impolite in the same way that not showering is. I think I was arguing about that in a dream. I don't know which side I was on.

You put more effort than your peers do at making yourself look good. Sorry, but I've unfortunately seen, and in some very unfortunately cases smelled, some of your peers at Microsoft. I don't want to physically get sick when you are near (can't say that about other people!)
