Okay, I understand that some of our youth are not the best mannered. But what about all the old farts like me (71 yrs.). Were we not trained to take off our hats when indoors. Jeesh, I even see them in restaurants.
I can understand hiding baldness, skin cancer etc. But, the sun doesn't shine inside an eating establishment and most buildings.
Walk into any restaurant and you can see at least a dozen guys with baseball caps. Unbelievable!

We come from a different generation where manners mattered. I'm just
a couple of years younger than you but I was taught to remove my hat
when you go indoors. I still do. Yes, I have a bald head and I'm not
trying to hide it.
The trend of wearing the cap backwards seems to be on the wane though.
That was the most idiotic thing I've seen.
Oh, just as dumb looking are the knit pull over hats a lot of guys are
wearing. OK, they give good protection from the cold, but they look
really stupid while eating in a restaurant.

Maybe a little clarification is needed. Wearing at hat while in Home
Depot, McDonalds, or the line at the Post Office is not a big deal and
I'd not even notice. If I'm at a really nice restaurant, it would
show you are uncouth and lacking good manners.
I won't challenge your constitutional right to do so, but I may also
be forming a rather poor opinion of you. Don't show up in my office
the next day applying for a manager position because I'll pass right
over you. Apply for a job at the car wash, you may be considered.
Like it or not, that is the way our society works. You won't see
bankers, judges, doctors, wearing baseball caps while at work. We
form opinions and draw conclusions from first appearances.
Broad-brim hats (with sun glasses?) are rather goofy looking indoors.
My greatest peeves are tight shorts with suggestive sayings on them on
LITTLE GIRLS. After that, low rider jeans with fat gut hanging out.
As far as baseball hats go, there is really no handy place to park them
in a restaurant, although leaving it in a car would work. Don't bother
me at all, and three grandsons and one son go through a range of styles.
Good grooming makes the greatest difference, IMO.
Last week, went out for Chinese buffet, local restaurant. Technically
challenged old woman turned on her speaker phone, loud, to listen to her
messages. Forgiven, almost, due to advanced age.
