I was wearing my red Onesie Stich while waiting for the light to change when a old woman in a car next to me rolled down her window, smiled at me, and said, "Nanu, nanu!"

Made me laugh, we flew into Houston TX for lunch, kid behind the counter asked what we all did (we were wearing flight suits, clearly marked US Coast Guard)......so we told him that we were in the USCG, and that we were heading back to Mobile Alabama after lunch....said it was about an hour or so to get back home, then after an uncomfortable pause and a blank stare, he asked "Dude, what kind of boat are you guys on?"

Years ago I was in a very small town parked in front of the old Courthouse----like all small towns have-----standing there admiring the old building ---next to my R100GSPD------in my stitch.

A car full of really cute high school girls pulls up with the windows down and very cutely---with some British accent----- and says......

"Pardon me sir-----But would you happen to have a bit of Grey Poupon"

And they sped off-----laughing their ass off.
That's when I finally realized------------I'm old.

I know most of us 'Stich wearers hear the "fire dept" comments all the time.

I am a volunteer fireman. Have been for 20 years/
I ride every day...every where...
My full time job is IT work at a bank.

Every day I wear my hi-viz onesy to work and hang it on my cube wall during the day. Last week the bank's CEO made his yearly walk-through and mingle with the underlings visit...

He gets to my desk, I politely stand up and greet him.
He ask while starring at my suit on the cube wall...

"Are you a fireman?"

"Why yes I am"

crickets...
crickets...
crickets...
crickets...
crickets...
crickets...
crickets...I mean at least 8 or 10 seconds of him looking at me and then back at the suit.

"Nice to see you today. Keep up the good work"

Maybe it's because I live in Maine, but everyone seems to think I'm wearing a snowmobile suit. Usually it's something like "kind of hot for the snowmobile suit, isn't it?"

The best was on a chilly day last November when I was walking from the office to the parking garage and a very drunk bum staggered up and said "Hey, give me your snow suit, I'm homeless!"

I always get....

...."are you a space man?" and "are you a pilot?". All The Time.

When I get the, "are you hot in that thing?", I tell them its "air conditioned" and they ask, "Where do you plug the air conditioner in?"

I love watching people freak out about my 'stich one piece Roadcrafter.

Strange. I thought you said yours was better. Where's the funny part?
