These Guys Discovered They Can Go Anywhere While Wearing Hi-Viz Vests

Most people don't own a high visibility vest unless their job or hobby demands it, and if they don't own one they'll never know how many places that brightly colored safety garment can take them.

Because, as David Allegretti and his pal Sean discovered, the hi-viz vest is the key to entering restricted areas, and people won't think twice about letting you in while you're wearing that vest.

David and Sean's hi-viz vests got them into the movies for free, allowed them to amble around the zoo and even got them a front row spot at a Coldplay concert, because they looked like they were on the job.

Here's what David had to say about the hi-viz vest experience:

“There’s just something about uniforms that garner an almost naive trust. People trust uniforms. Most of us obey the word of those clad in uniforms”

“All in all, the experience had just proved…that you’ll never know if you don’t try”

“I guess if I could give you one piece of advice, it would be this: Go get yourself a hi-vis vest. And that’s all you need to know about life”

My new part time job is at Florida Southwestern State College on the event staff at the new sport's arena. I have to wear a T-shirt in that yellow-green color. It says EVENT STAFF on the back. I've found that people treat me differently, in a positive way.
Actually I'm nothing more than a glorified bouncer, with uniformed public safety people
around in case I need them.
