The Hat is a simple item of fashion, yet one that is able to be transformed with a single flash of creativity. Like The Towel from the HHGTTG, The Hat is a flexible item and one that comes in a variety of colours for a variety of uses. For example, one can pull their Hat over their eyes to hide from an unfortunate event.
Name::Dave The Hat From::Latrobe City, Victoria, Australia
Let's say you were mayor of a major American city, and were conducting a tour/photo op/ass kissing PR exercise of one of your city offices. It is obviously very important to show both workers and world press alike that you are no GIRLY MAN and that YOU MEAN BUSINESS. To prove such a point, do you:
a) Throttle a nearby kitten before hurling it at the cieling fan, b) Challenge a surprised toddler to a stapler duel, or c) Fire an office assistant for having the audacity to be playing Solitare.
Office assistant Edward Greenwood IX was going over some papers at his desk as Bloomberg made the rounds with his photographer, greeting workers and posing for pictures. When the mayor reached him, Greenwood stood, they shook hands and the photographer snapped a photo.
But the eagle-eyed mayor - a billionaire former businessman with a certain idea of how offices should be run - noticed Greenwood's game of solitaire glowing on his screen. He said nothing about it to Greenwood but later told an aide to give him the ax.
So he didn't even do it in person? Now when I was just a young 13 year old, I often got mates to ask out girls for me because I was too chicken. Now that, I think, is understandable behaviour. But if he felt SOOOO strongly this anti-solitare sentiment - maybe he just wasn't hugged enough as a kid - why didn't he do it himself?
Greenwood, who earned $27,000 a year and had worked in the office for six years, said in a telephone interview that he limited his play time to his one-hour lunch or during quick breaks when he needed a moment of distraction.
"It wasn't like I spent hours and hours a day playing, because I had plenty to do," Greenwood said. "If I had been working at something exhaustively for two hours, I might get a cup of coffee and play for a minute but then go right back to my work."
BAH! THE WORLD HAS GONE CRAZY! I DON'T THINK I WANT A JOB ANYMORE!
