I admit that although I turned 40 a while back, I’m still pretty juvenile. I guess it’s a character flaw, but I choose to embrace it.
So the other day, I got a paperclip from a company to remain nameless. It’s pretty cool because it’s shaped like a dog bone! I mean, come on – custom made paper clips that fit the theme of your company is pretty damned cool. And they work great too. This is a nice little piece of attention to detail that could make a stunning impression on your customers and employees. I shudder to think what they cost and how much corporate time and money went into them.
What’s the problem?
See for yourself what happens if you actually USE one of these nifty little devices. That’s right. Suddenly your cute corporate synergy is thrown out the window and replaced by a tiny little set of “frank and beans” if you know what I mean.
Anyway that’s pretty much what occupied my Sunday. Plus playtime with the dog. Lots of playtime. I feel sorry for his toys actually, we may have worn them out. That also means that I didn’t remember to go buy bags. You know, the kind a good dog owner needs when they take their dog out for a walk <wink wink>. But that’s ok. It’s supposed to be nice tomorrow, I’m still on vacation and we’ve got lots of other bags we can use.
