I was asked over the weekend "When did Carhartt start making overalls like that?"
Best thing I ever heard ABOUT someone in a stich suit was outside an IMS in DC about 10 years ago. From a sportbike rider.
"He's wearing a H-Viz Stich..............let's kick his ass!"
"Look Daddy! It's an astronaut"
Overheard from a small kid in a rest area on I95.
In line at the grocery store the other day:
Older lady: Excuse me, what do you do for a living?
Me: Nuke test at EB (the submarine builder in town)
OL: Ah. So the suit is for protection from radiation?
M: Something like that.
Harley dudes in a rural bar, Wisconsin, middle of hot summer, them laughing:
" Hey, you come in on your snowmobile?" More laughing.
Made me laugh too! (actually not in a stich suit, but darien jacket and pants,,, but funny enough to share)
At a fuel stop getting a drink.
"Are you working on the road down there? What's taking so long with that?"
10 year old Mexican kid with limited English skills:
"I like your swim suit".
I assume he was thinking "wet suit".
Co-workers always give me shit...I see you wore your ghostbuster costume today!
Happened to a friend of mine while having his safety inspection done on his GS at a HD stealer.
Walking out after paying for the inspection past a small group of HD hangers on in his red stich.
One said "man aren't you HOT" my friend stop turns to the group and said " I never thought of my self like that, but thanks for noticing !"
He then turned and walked out. All the while the group was laughing at there buddy so hard he may have had to sell his HD vest.
Walked into the office wearing helmet, gloves, etc..
Co-worker sees me and asks..."Oh do you have a motorcycle?"
My answer...."No, I am just really clumsy and the wife makes me wear all this."
In a red suit- "whats the coast guard doing so far inland?"
My two daughters call my red 2-piece R/C the 'Santa suit.' I assure them that gifts are not forthcoming!
While in Duluth about a month ago, my buddy and myself were cruising through town checking things out. We stopped at a ice cream place over looking the port to cool off a bit. While standing next to our bikes, a few kids 10 to 12 yrs old came along on their pedal bikes and said, "Nice suits" in that condescending way they are clearly making fun of you. It not what they said, but the fact that my buddy and I were made fun of by a 10 yr old kid riding his bike that made us laugh. It was a proud moment.
We then chased the kid down and gave him a wedgie.
My reply: "It's not the heat it's the stupidity."
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!"
Co-workers......" hey, where's the fire?"
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?"
We have a winner
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.
