|A Hi Vis jacket with added reflective strips. Why?|
Some of these Hi Vis jackets even have reflective strips on them too, just to really annoy me.. It's a Hi Vis jacket for God's sake! How noticeable do you need to be? Reflective bleedin' strips on a Hi Vis jacket! Can't you see that is utter madness?
I live near the open prison, and it looks like all the prisoners have been issued with them too. If there was ever a mass breakout all the prisoners would have to do is mingle with the local Hi Vis community and they would never be found. That's what I mean you see about them losing their effectiveness. Everyone is wearing one.
There is something else I really dislike about Hi Vis jackets. Officials wear them. You give a lowly worker a Hi Vis jacket and he suddenly thinks he is important. I don't like officials. My pet hate among officials is the car park attendant. They were bad enough before the Hi Vis jacket was invented, but now they are a bleedin' nightmare. When I see a parking warden with a Hi Vis I'm afraid all I have in mind is what a good target they make.
I will concede that they might have been helpful when only the police, or paramedics wore them, but now everyone looks like a policeman. It is bloody annoying having to slam on my brakes every time I see one. That is it again you see. They are no longer effective because everyone is wearing them.
Please stop wearing them you blokes, it is getting out of hand and you look stupid. Oh and by the way I have noticed that more women are wearing them now. Big mistake ladies. I promise you, yes, your arse does look big in it. Enormous in fact, and extremely bleedin' visible!
