Mine has to go to the genius who deadheads in jeans and tennis shoes, gets called on it by the SCP and pulls out the:
"Are you the uniform police?" comeback.

Alder, my nomination goes to the former employee who was late for a show, when asked by her Chief Pilot if she was (name here), responded by saying' "what's it to ya?,...fat boy!."

Red face Ooops!

Old DAL story: A CP spots a couple pilots without hats or coats and launches a rant. Turns out that they work for Eastern.

True story. 2 USAF Lt's chatting in the squadron parking lot without hats on, a 40ish guy out jogging sees them, detours over and asks about the hat status. "Take a chill pill old man" came the status report. "You don't know who I am, do you?" he asked inquisitively with a smile. "Uh, no....sir?" "I'm your Wing Commander, and I want you, and your squadron commander, in my office in 30 minutes, in blues." Priceless....

Major, where it your hat?

It's in my pocket.

Why isn't it on your head?

Cause my head won't fit in my pocket.

Default More fun than looking like a dirt bag

On a short trip with extra room in the bag I sometimes deadhead in a nice suit, shined shoes and a fresh haircut. It really screws with some peoples minds and gets a few legitimate "Sirs" thrown my way. (Vs Subic "Sirrrrrrs") Besides: "O" would NEVER dream I worked for FDX and I can hide in plain sight. My vote for the "Award"? The drunk that informs the arresting officer where they work!

The most telling detail is we have guys who don't know what the SCP looks like. Talk about leading from the front.

Hey, I know the Captain in question and his response to "O" was appropriate. His name is Texas Ranger and if we wanted to hire panzies, we would have named him Dr Quinn or Medicine Man. He was probably jacked up on Mountain Dew in the first class lounge.

ACP: Z**, where's your hat?
ZM: It's in my suitcase
ACP: Why's it in your suitcase?
ZM: Because it's too small - it doesn't fit me.
ACP: Why don't you get a larger hat?
ZM: If I got a larger hat, it wouldn't fit in my suitcase.
ACP: Uncontrollable laughter.

This supposedly happened last year with O on the crew bus except it was a Mesaba Jumpseater with his tie off that was the subject of the rant. He (O) even asked the guy if he knew who he was and why he didnt read his FCIF's.
