Guys who wear their ID tag to a bar

Why do they do it? On countless occasions, I've seen up to several men a night wear their work ID tag around their neck. Do they think they will pick up more girls or something? It seems quite pathetic and narcissistic. My tag stays in my desk during the day and remains there overnight, unless I'm out in the field.

Short rant, sorry.

FOR SALE 2000 XJ (Fern), ~129K miles, see specs in profile. Looking to sell at the end of May. PM me for details/offers.

You think that's bad? I can't wait to get my scrubs off as soon as possible. I don't even like getting in my jeep with them on most of the time. Yet I see dudes go to the gym working out in scrub bottoms like a girl is going to think they are a doctor. Vet techs aren't fooling anyone. Haha

Sometimes I go to the bar in my work clothes depending how dirty they are. But then again its just a t shirt and a pair of jeans.

haha I remember when I was in Ocean City like 5 years ago and saw two Soldiers (probably Nat Guard) cruising the boardwalk in full ACUs trying to pick up girls. Like BRO did you just get out of basic or something?

I've seen the ID thing too. Lots of people go to the bar straight after work and just don't care I guess.

I left work this morning and went to a diner in downtown with my wife... I noticed while setting at the table that I had my badge on me... Snatched it off and stuck it in my pocket. If I'm not in my work uniform (with the silly sewed on nametag), I'm expected to wear my ID either on my pocket or clipped to my collar. Forgot it when I stepped out I suppose...

Consistently wore my FR coveralls into town on lunch runs last turnaround. Faster than taking them on/off and keeps my clothes clean in the work trucks that no one cleans.

They're trying to distinguish themselves as having a job. That's a bit more attractive to the females I guess.

I worked as a contractor at several military bases and after a while you stop even noticing having a card hung on your neck. Plus the resulting chaos from not having it always available or losing it is not worth letting it out of sight.

Jbolty is spot on. We can't get into any buildings at all without our ID card, so if I leave it somewhere and show up at work, I need to go to reception and then spend the rest of the day with a sticker of shame and need to get buzzed in everywhere. Total pain in the *** if I forget it, so in general, I keep it on me.

Generally I'm not going to the bar to pick up girls, I'm going because my whiskey to blood level is out of whack and needs a refill. So frankly, I don't give a **** if people think it's weird that I don't bother to take my ID tag off.

Yah I keep mine under my shirt. They look stupid hanging out and I don't want everyone I come across to know my name.

But bars that is just lazy or despite.

Exactly right. If I do happen to notice that I left my badge on I'll put it in my pocket. 75% of the time I am walking home when I realize it's still clipped to my belt.


Guys who think that people would wear their work badges as a sign for ladies, seriously don't understand women in the least.


Edit: just re-read my post. I'm not a cop or any LEO, might have sounded like it, but for some reason my facility calls it a badge as it has our pic/credentials and a fob to get through doors. Dunno

I moved from one military base town to another, nothing changed, nothing at all.
