Quick run around my local supermarket this afternoon. Chap in there wearing red overalls covered in sh1t. Filthy wellington boots and to top it off a dear stalker hat….he was one of our local farmers. Is this reasonable behaviour, walking around in public like a mental patient? I know it’s his job, but I doubt a surgeon would walk around in blood splattered scrubs would he. I’m not suggesting he showers and wears a suit but he could have taken his overalls off and slipped a pair of boots/trainers on his feet.

Yrs ago I went to sign a grazing agreement in the office of a trusteee of the estate . He rang me up to pop in and sign it so I did ...straight from market ! He wasn't impressed but I just looked at him and said " your in your working clothes ....and I'm in mine " he laughed and said " you win"
Had many a drink together since !

The dirty boots things a bit disrespectful, but the clothes aren’t a problem at all. We’ve a local farmer I’ve often had the misfortune of following around the co op with rather short shorts on that obviously ripped wide open some time ago. Damn good job he wears boxers underneath else I’d have thrown my deerstalker down in disgust and driven to Tesco where the clientele at least wear pyjamas
