Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expressions in bold in the following sentences?
After I finished sweeping, I grabbed my check, went to the locker room, and doffed the monkey suit, slipped into my jeans, sneakers and T-shirt and broke camp.
doff = remove, to rid oneself of= To take off or lift (one's hat) in salutation
break camp = leave a place, move out. The meaning is OK but its use does not sound idiomatic.
This clause needs to be tailored to the particular circumstances of the employer.
