Brought To You By Your Cross Dressing ATC Guy

Sat Jul 07, 2007 11:03 am

Here is a short (26 second) piece from NPR last week.

Apparently some male controllers are protesting the (absurd) new dress code which bans shorts, jeans and tee shirts by wearing skirts!

And a link to today's somewhat lengthier piece which makes reference to this amongst other work rules:

Geeze. And they used to give me a hard time about the sheep thing. Glad I'm retired.
I don't understand everything I don't know about this.
