Daughters used to be admonished to wear clean underwear, "in case you're in an accident" I always wondered whether the moothers were trying to convey being prepared for some other eventuality, but I digress. It seems that we should admonish our sons to change out of these things when they go out, lest they have an accident and get thoroughly brought low by the EMTs.

I had a similar thought, thank you for voicing it. Although at least one EMT of my acquaintance has felt complimented by the thought that "for a straight person you're pretty queer".

I would wear em. Besides if the accident was bad enough that they had to go ther, then i sure wouldnt be worrying about them.

There are, indeed, occasions for which I'd find them appropriate. But I'd probably only wear 'em in-transit around, say, the San Francisco, Austin and Seattle metropolitan areas. Professionalism among emergency responders is one thing, but I'm not willing to depend on it in cultures such as one might find in, say, Dunlap, Tennessee.

(Well, okay, I'm pretty sure that in late August in the area between Reno and Gerlach Nevada, nobody blink an eye either...)

I worked in a hospital for a few years as have several other readers here. I think all of us can attest to the fact that emergency room stories do not stay in the emergency room. Names were generally protected but the stories got out.
