The Bas Yisroel store

I love that they have tznius rulers (to make sure your skirt is within official tznius regulations)

    the supplies for the cleaning lady are more troubling…..

    Pitifully, it’s crap like that’s keeping me from being more careful about tznius, how can I respect the rules of a group that makes their cleaning lady wear a duster ( I’m assuming they mean a duster that is a housecoat kind of thing) to work in their house. A ruler for tznius? Give me a break. Worse is they look at me funny when my neckline shows, and they should just be happy my boobs aren’t hanging out. I see how my daughter has to keep up appearances when she’s out of school, so that she doesn’t get thrown out, and we’re in an out of town community where things are little more relaxed. If I hear one more person tell me I have to wear socks because it’s minhag hamokom I’ll scream. Pardon my rant. .. many years of baggage weighing down on me.

    I’ve seen the cleaning lady coverups advertised in the past, and they bother me too. On the one hand… there’s no law against requiring hired help to wear certain items – many jobs require uniforms. On the other hand, I’d like to see every cleaning lady in Monsey show up at the door in short shorts and bikini tops.

    In addition to requiring dusters, the frum community doesn’t treat its domestic help especially well. Frum people don’t seem to understand that if you cancel your help because you decide at the last minute to go out of town, you should still pay. If you agree on a wage, you should not try to “Jew them down” after they start. It’s not polite to pay your help with the ShopRite scrip that your school requires you to buy. (Most people expect to be paid in actual American dollars) etc etc

    Rant rant, I could go on all day.

      I don’t think there’s any need for anti-Semitic language.

    What the heck are “Dickeys”? doesn’t sound like something to find in a Beis Yaakov store.

    Haha I recognize my thumb in that picture. For the record, there has since been an addition to the merchandise: an anti-clicker for shoes. So that when we women walk, the men “vus kikt nisht” whose last resort for a good turn-on is just the sound of a woman’s footsteps, will no longer sin. Baruch Hashem for innovative minds.

    It seems relatively untzniut to have a girl walk in to a store and have to ask for a Dickey. If she has a big nexk, does she ask for a “big Dickey?’ If she wants it to match her tights, does she ask for a “big black Dickey?”

    What is a cordless headband????

    could someone please translate the Yiddish

    • chanah May 8, 2012, 2:22 PM

      my attempt at the yiddish translation… it’s been a long time since last using yiddish

      socks to get out of bed
      tznius ruler
      wirtshoft ermel (?) (sleeves to put on for house work?)

  • Rebetzin Nitza Getleid May 7, 2012, 7:58 PM

    The first line is “socks with which to get out of bed”

    Gotta watch those cleaning ladies. A few years ago, my next door neighbours hired a newly arrived immigrant from Eastern Europe. She took her up to her summer home on a “Jewish” lake, gave her a list of chores. To her horror, she walked out to see her in the water, washing some clothes, all she was wearing was her bikini bottom as customary in Europe when at the beach.

      *shrug*
      Let’s hope these nice people never go to Japan or Scandinavia. Sauna and Japanese bath customs would probably give the heart attacks.

    Damn, all this talk of Japanese customs… I am in the mood right now to go to an Asian Spa for a rub a tug…
