Then I get a female instructor approach me. 'Excuse me, you cannot be here dressed like that'. 'Oh? I've been dressed like this every time I've been here'. 'Maybe so, but the rules...' I was dressed in normal clothing, black jeans etc. I had been told that it would be 'better' to wear something loose, but I hadn't been told thus far that it was forbidden to be dressed in any other than leisurewear. Oh, yuk, if you know me even a little you will know how I feel about 'leisurewear and how I responded now that I had been enjoying their sweet R'n'B trash pop at full volume for an hour. I said send the manager, I want to have a word with him about your policies. She sent a security and I repeated the same thing so they sent a manager. A junior one. Sorry, sir, it is company policy. No, sir, we cannot admit you in future dressed in any other than leisurewear. Yes, sir, we have no control over the music which is programmed and sent to us centrally.
I turned around to look for the telescreens and the Ingsoc banners. I think I may have spotted one or two.
