on base...for being in "inappropriate civilian attire"....
Yes, I technically WAS not in proper clothing but I was wayyyyy better dressed then anyone else around at that time! It was also almost closing time so no one "important" was even around!
I respect that the Marine Corps wants the people that represent them (the Marines, spouses, etc.) to look acceptable and that is why they have standards but if you are going to have such rules, either enforce them all the time or don't. I felt like I was singled out by this woman while others looked worse then I did and she said nothing. I must have looked approachable to her so she felt more comfortable yelling at me..
Oh and my outfit? I was in long black workout pants, a pink workout shirt, with a black track jacket over it- zipped up. No cleavage showing, no ripped clothing, my hair was tied back neatly. It wasn't the "pajama" style track suit, I would have worn this to teach in (granted, I teach PE but still...) I was in PT gear, that isn't allowed but people do it all the time and look way worse then I did! If I had had my cute nice checkered coat on over top, my pants would have been mistaken for dress pants, i guarantee it!
The kicker...while I was getting told "I should have you leave but Ill let you through this one time..." I saw 2 people in pajama pants- patterns and all, a male with a t-shirt with the sleeves cut off, and a woman who was FALLING out of her shirt- I'm pretty sure I saw a nip slip in the 10 seconds I was looking at her...yet I am the one who gets yelled at...um, NO! Not fair!
It just pushed my buttons, like I said- I know that I wasn't in the right attire, but that woman should have stopped EVERYONE to tell them, and not just me.
