Anybody remember the Bob Newhart Show? Been watching old episodes on Hulu with the lady (don't ask why). For those unfamiliar, his neighbor is a "navigator on the big jets". That guy is ALWAYS in his uniform! Watched one episode the other night where he goes on a double date with Bob and his wife and he shows up at the restaurant IN UNIFORM! "Sorry im late. Just got in from Guam." C'mon man!

Seriously? I don't care what anyone thinks of me in my uniform. I've stopped by many stores and restaurants both to and from work. Most people are oblivious and don't notice, and the ones who do are usually nice and sometimes just curious.

I usually get "Thank You for your service" in a fast food drive thru on my way home.

I did career day at my kids' middle school years ago. Showed up in uniform, complete with hat. First kid I talked to asks "how many people have you shot?"

Ha! Gotten that one... also got the police officer discount one time, to which I said "no, I just fly airliners for Delta..." They refused to remove the discount and thanked me for my humility.

Calling out light chop and asking for wind checks is pretty risky work, I suppose.

Never-ever stand in front of a Ritz- Carlton in uniform. Tips ain't bad though.
