I'm a waiter at a steak house, so I'm used to dealing with people. Most of these people are some of the nicest you'll ever meet, some are the douche-ist of the douchebags. All in all, I have over ten years of serving experience with a wide array of people. But, something has been grating on my mind here lately, and an event on Saturday night brought this question to the front of my mind.
When did camouflage become acceptable dinner attire? I'm aware that some people hunt, others are in the military. I don't have a problem with people going out to eat in BDUs. It's the people wearing pristine, clean camo that's got me baffled. "Put on your finest camo, we're going out to eat! Wooo!" This says to me that they've not done any hunting, and they're wearing it because they think it's cool.
But, the event that happened Saturday was some of the area schools were having their proms. And some boys came in wearing black tuxedos with CAMOUFLAGE VESTS AND TIES. WTF? When did this become acceptable? When did this become cool? But, most importantly, WHY did this become cool?
