    Next time I get on a plane and the pilot comes in in sweats, flip flops and t shirt loaded with food stains I’ll have a hard time remembering the way he is dressed doesn’t matter as I exit the plane

    Now you have hit a sore spot! I was in my 20’s and all the cool people were getting Tattoos. If I could still fit in my Western Clothes I would wear them, but my Carhart shorts fit much better. I still don’t wear my Flip Flops to work.

    We can make a difference but it's an uphill battle. Habib and Igor don't see it the same way.

    Btw I agree with you

    The whole reason I have my name on the door is so I can do wtf I want when. Granted do the wrong #### enough and you won’t continue to pay the bills. Point is Blair has paid to see his name on the door. Seems to be prospering so others thoughts be ###### about the image of this industry he has earned that right. Sure I get it, but there is a difference in casually professional and sloppy. I’m tell ya if you really really wanna make a difference need to get them bullhaulers in my opinion. Nasty sonsaguns had dried up cow pooey on his boot and tracked it into the bosselmans. One other day had his hat bill bent and it was crooked just terrible. And then he made a joke about it said it was bent that way from peepin in the mail box huntin that welfare check. Really I mean he is able to work why would he deserve welfare. For sure it’s those guys you need to be gettin on too

    I just started driving a truck like yesterday. I can assure you the general public doesn't know or care about how truck drivers dress. Poop bags, piss bottles, flip flops - they don't even know about that stuff. All they know is they're trying to get from A to B, and you're in the way. Wearing a tucked in shirt doesn't change that.
