Uniform to Work Day 2010 (ABN 32/10)

#1
Good morning ladies and gents,

I thought I would kick off the (judging from reading last year's topic) highly polarising discussion on this year's "Uniform to Work Day", the Army Briefing Note for which is available in the news section on the front page of Armynet and should hopefully have made it into your unit's part one orders as well. I'd be interested to see if consensus has changed from last year?

All the best,

Fluff_eei

I dont see what it achieves, do we really want binmen dressing up for the day in S95 gear and it looking as if the A Team is on a mission ?

I'd rather stand in the town centre for a day handing out leaflets to disinterested crustys whilst trying to entice them to take a look at all our up to date kit.

Our boss is doing her best to create some enthusiasm. Bless.

I'm going to do it, because I'm really looking forward to saying one thousand times:
"No I'm not in the fcuking TA, I'm in the fcuking Air Force. No I don't fly a fcuking plane or a fcuking helicopter. Yes I'm really looking forward to killing babies in Afghan. Yes I love being shouted at whilst doing pressups in a puddle. No I don't actually live off bully beef and pond water. Yes the SLR was a much better rifle. Yes that bloke off the Office is exactly what all the others in the TA are like (ha!). No you don't take your fcuking Uzi home on a Sunday night. No I couldn't just tell 'the Generals' to fcuk off because it's an unjust war when I'm called up. Why yes I do look rather handsome in green, my phone number is....."

But mostly because I'm a walty b'stard.

Personally, I'd rather go in naked. It would be much easier to explain...

Did it last year, got loads of bone questions and the office homosexuals and office dolly's saying "I love a man in uniform"........ I looked like a bag of shit as always. I'll be skipping it this year.

Well there's no way I could wear CS95s to work and as a trooper I don't have any other appropriate uniform I could wear to my day job. It's already a non starter.
And that is the key limitation. C95 is protective dress for the field, not office wear.

The Army is the only organisation that I can think of that thinks it normal to wear coveralls and safety boots to work in an office.

The two TA blokes in the building collared me yesterday. One's a monkey and the other a drop-short, but otherwise they're quite normal.

They're doing it - explaining that it was an ideal opportunity to get the Help for Heroes buckets out. Last year they raised just short of £200. Also, matey-boy from the RA managed to get his leg over.

I've now had second thoughts and am definitely going to do it.
For the charidee, obviously.
