5. Your Inner-Anthropologist will be very happy!
Breaking down invisible walls and challenging social norms will be enjoyable – just ask your rebel-within. A day filled with people greeting you by name will renew your faith in humanity.
4. You’ll feel like a celebrity!
(sans the annoying paparazzi)
With everyone who crosses your path using your name, it won’t be long before you feel famous. If you’re asked for an autograph – I say go with it.
3. You’ll save time at Starbucks!
Wearing a name tag will save time not only for the barista (who would ordinarily ask your name even if you’ve been a regular for seven years) but also for everyone behind you in line. Additionally, if every customer of every Starbucks wears a name tag on September 3rd, perhaps Starbucks management will finally get the message that their employees should also be wearing name tags. One can only hope.
2. It’s easier than a 10k walk!
It’s also easier than running a marathon or gathering signatures or writing a letter or falling out of bed for that matter. There just aren’t many easier ways to bring about a little social improvement.
1. You’ll change the world!
Yes, I’ve heard from one or two sayers-of-nay that wearing a name tag probably won’t change the world – but I deg to biffer. What is the world other than what we experience on a day to day basis? If that experience is improved even for one moment through a small connection with another human being, then the world most certainly has changed.
It’s simple. It’s easy. On Saturday, September 3rd, just wear a name tag – and go about your day. Wherever you go, you’ll leave a better world in your wake.
P.S. If you’re in San Miguel de Allende, stop by El Jardín on Saturday, September 3rd, between 3:00pm and 8:00pm for free name tags.
If you’d like some name tags ahead of time, just say the word. I’ve got plenty. You can send me an email or call my SMA cell phone: 415 111 8898
