I was eating breakfast this morning at a restaurant and there were many customers eating in their professional uniforms. Four nurses in scrubs with ID lanyards displayed. A couple of truck drivers in their company uniforms with company logo and multiple customers wearing company logo shirts with their IDs still around their necks.

If any one of them happened to be an airline pilot and any of YOU happened to see them at this restaurant, can you imagine the schitt storm that would have ensued on this message board about how "toolish" and unprofessional this behavior would have been? You guys would have given the poor pilot loads of crap for not disrobing before going into a public establishment to eat.

The bottom line is that nobody cares except you, and you don't matter.

Do you realize you are arguing with yourself? I have never seen a post on FlightInfo that called pilots "unprofessional" for eating in uniform.

Agreed. If I'm on the way home from a trip and have to stop at the grocery, I just wear my uniform like everybody else in a service business does. If somebody has a problem with that, too bad. (Ooops. This is FI. I meant 'to bad.')

What can Brown do for me? He can continue to post things I agree with. Who cares about such things aside from the Bozos on this regional forum. Now back to your regular flame please Mr. Brown, it's very entertaining.

the reason ppl complain and poke fun is becaue it takes one to know one. the only one obscessing about the uniform is the person so angry to see someone else wear theirs outside the terminal. you see, the uniform is SO important to some, that it has become sacred inside thier minds. no one notices or car4es. they thinnk people are so impressed with their uniform that if a pilot wears his, it is ONLY because he thinks so highly of it and that it will garner some immortal respect. ridiculous. basic psychology, i think. okay... some more red wine.... =O)

I wore my uniform into Food4Less last week after getting in from work.. I got a lot of weird stares, not sure if it was because I was a pilot and probably the only white customer in the store, or maybe they thought I was la migra... Unfortunately I can't afford the expensive grocery stores ;-)

When I saw the thread title of:

TOOL SIGHTING

Then I noticed our intrepid hero- BROWNTOTHEBONE was the author,

I was certain I was about to read an intriguing narrative by Mr. Browntothebone breathlessly relating to us in his faultless prose his discovery of the proper usage of a mirror.

The first thing I do after finishing a trip is lose the stripes and tie on the bus to the employee lot. I can't figure out why some one thinks it's cool to drive home in full uniform. The funny thing is these nurses and truck drivers make more then us and their home every night. They have nothing to prove. Hard working blue collard workers.
