Adapt and Overcome.. Too funny not to share.
So I wake up to find that My dryer had stopped working sometime during the middle of the night due to a power glitch. My uniform shirt is wet and I am freaking out because I really do not want to report for duty only to pull My shirt off and stick it in the Departments dryer.
So I hang My shirt out of the window and surprisingly enough at 75MPH a 5.11 Polo will dry nicely over a 25 Mile trip.
Also I should add that seatbelts were worn and every safety precaution was taken and none of the wildlife were disturbed very much.
Anybody ever have one of those days?Do not let the ghosts of our fallen brothers gaze upon you and ask " What have you done to my profession?" FTB DTRT EGH

First, I can imagine what the people on I-75 probably thought. ;-)
Second, are you required to show up for work with your duty shirt on and keep it on? I know I could care less if one of my guys showed up, explained what happened, and threw his shirt in the dryer for a bit.Career Fire Captain

I haven't had that happen..... Yet. But I did get up early one morning and make all the necessary preparations to drive the 6 miles to work........... On a Snowmobile.

Uh, you only got one shirt?
Actually, I've had this happen, but it was only damp and I just wore it anyway.

I was on a little family outing to the local farmer's market and we were heading to a festival in a nearby town. Well I am holding the flowers in my lap and little did I know they were dripping all over the croth of my jeans. Suddenly I realize my pants are wet and CRAP! Now what? It looked like I ****ed myself. So I took off my pants and just like you hung them out the window at 75 going down I94!
