School Teacher Wears The Same Outfit For Yearbook Pictures for 40 Years
Mr Dale Irby is definitely one of a kind! The teacher of Prestonwood Elementary in Richardson, USA, decided to take yearbook pictures to another level and from 1973 on he started to have his annual school photo taken in the same outfit. And did so up to 2012 when he eventually retired.
First he felt embarrassed when he realized that he put on the same shirt and vest as the year before, but then his wife, Cathy, convinced him to make it into a joke and wear them again and again the following five years. He accepted the challenge.
It turned out to be fun, actually, so Dale decided not to stop. And even when he, well, grew out of the famous clothes, he would carry them to school just for the photo shoot.
So, although first it happened just by accident, realizing the opportunity to stand out of the average was the point that made Dale Irby give the word school pranks a new meaning.
Where it all began! Mr Irby started a tradition. And even though he wasn’t aware of its importance at first, the seed took root. The second time he was wearing that shirt with the sweater vest, he changed something though – he had grown a moustache! But later at least it stayed with him all along.
