I Hate Name Tags

Two people just walked into the coffee shop wearing name tags. I suppose they're stopping in to take a coffee break from work.

It just hit me: I never want to have a job where I have to wear a name tag. I hate name tags, actually. I hate wearing them at conferences, and I hate writing my name on them at mixers or other gatherings. I'll wear a suit or a jumpsuit; just don't slap a name tag on it. Especially one that has my picture and clips to my belt or is on a lanyard.

To me, they simply smack of corporate un-creativity. I never want to wear them. That is all. Back to work.
