    So, just wondering what I should wear on the first day of an oral surgery externship. Suit and tie or scrubs.

    It damn-ass cold here
    Depends on the program, but I wouldn't show up initially in scrubs. They will usually take you to the OR change room to get scrubs when the time comes.

    Start with at least a shirt and tie, with some nice shiny shoes. Bring a change of comfortable shoes for the OR, and definitely bring your own lab coat. Keep a pen on you at all times.

    If you really want to impress, wear a man-thong, so you can let a little bit of the T-bar poke out when you bend over. You know, show a little slut-butt.

    Shirt and tie, a pen, shiny shoes, and a slut butt, I think I can swing that. Thanks

    I always thought a nice wife-beater added a classy touch.
