Signs of Our Times
I live with a woman of few words … in fact, the amount she speaks is the absolute opposite of the amount she reads (which is an enormous amount!) Over time, her facial expressions have become legendary, making any verbal comments virtually unnecessary. So perhaps that’s why she likes “signage” in lieu of artwork. On any given day, I might ask Carol a question and her answer is simply to point to one of numerous signs which adorn the walls of our office/home.
Let me give you a couple of examples. You would think after almost 10 years I would have figured out the SFHN&HR filing system, but my usual shortcut is to yell across the office and ask Carol for the location of a particular file (which we all know really means, “Can you get me that file?”) At which point, Carol will merely rotate on her chair and point above her desk — “Let Me Drop Everything and Work On Your Problem.”
Then there was the day I came home complaining a bit too much from one of my networking forays and found this on my desk — “Masquerading As A Normal Person Day After Day Is Exhausting.”
And it goes on …
Never Underestimate the Power of Stupid People in Large Groups.
A Day Without Sunshine Is Like, Well, Night.
Whenever I Feel Blue, I Start Breathing Again.
Or how about the one, she has strategically placed at our front door — I’d like to help you out. Which way did you come in?
And to all of you who like Carol and I own your own businesses:
The Only Thing More Overrated Than Natural Childbirth, Is the Joy of Owning Your Own Business!
But probably the sign which has done more to preserve our marriage, as well as our business partnership is the one, the only one that she has positioned right above my desk. ‘’If at first you don’t succeed try doing it the way your wife told you.” Consider this last one, a gift from me to you.
