Hello,

Can you please define "curb appeal" in this circumstance? That is, what would be the employer's ideal "look" for the job description?

Never mind about your gender. I don't really need to know. Here's the deal:

If your "sex appeal" was the reason for your being denied employment, then that would be discrimination based upon sex, and you can complain to the Florida Commission on Human Rights (FCHR).

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
