Peter, who fucking cares if he wears a hat indoors? That's some 
old-timey shit!

Can you even explain exactly why it's such a "basic human courtesy"? 
Other than, "Because we've always done it that way........".

And to broadcast this for the entire mailing list...WTF MATE??

Welcome to 2018. His head, his rules!

#FreeTheHat #HatNazi #NoHatForYou!
