Pocketless dress shirts

Had an Epiphany today about expectations. Generally I wear button down dress shirts and Slacks to work, or when I go out at night. Sometimes I mix in an occasional short sleeved pullover shirt with a collar on it, like in the style of an Izod, but usually its a long sleeved button down dress shirt.

Today was a long sleeved button down dress shirt day, except this particular shirt did not have a front pocket, so I had to put my pen on the button up part, and I was bummed that this shirt did not come with pockets. This was when the epiphany occurred. I could care less about not having a shirt pocket when I am wearing a polo or Nike pullover shirt but because this was the dress shirt, I felt cheated by the absence of the pocket and in this realization I found the pocket is not needed after all. Let go of your need for pockets on shirts and admire the simplicity of a dress shirt without pockets.
