A note from frequent commenter “bc” in response to my spring break post. Genius really.
I don’t get a Spring Break, so I can’t answer this one, but it does remind me of an idea I’ve always had.
I’ll preface this by saying I’m in no way denying my shallowness. I’ve always said that everyone should be made to wear a name tag at all times that simply states the following:
1. Name (I’m bad at remembering these)
2. Annual salary including bonus (this lets me know if that nice car is leased, if that nice house was a family gift, etc)
3. Number of partners (not business partners – you do understand where I’m going, right?)
These are the things I want to know every time I’m shaking someone’s hand, smiling, and saying “Hi [insert name], nice to meet you.”
It really sums up the basics, gives you some insight into your chances, and cuts through all the fakeness. Of course, it would have to be some futuristic concept where people couldn’t lie, etc.
