Overheard At Work: Colors

I work in a typical office, surrounded by many other workers in cubicles. Although I'm grateful to have a job I like, sometimes the vocal din from the surrounding coworkers is a bit overwhelming. Not to mention odd. Thank the gods old and new for headphones and Pandora.

The following is a 100% true actual conversation I Overheard At Work:
Woman (to other woman): "Do you know how jealous I am of you that you can wear chartreuse and I can't?"
I have to assume the person who said this meant that they can't wear that particular color because it doesn't go well with their skin tone or hair color or some such hooey, and not that chartreuse is outlawed by their church, synagogue or Home Owner's Association.

I can say with absolute surety that at no point in my life have I ever once given a second's thought as to whether or not I could "wear" a particular color. I ain't got time to worry about my personal color palette.
