YOUR PAPERS PLEASE

A new policy at work this week:



While this method of identification is far better than the old one (wearing gay polo shirts that bore the company logo), associate co-collegue Kevin and I are trying to determine the best way to "wear" our badges. Management prefers the use of the official lanyard. We do not. We do not even like the word lanyard and affect its use only with a mocking tone. The lanyard would be cool if I were a lighting technician backstage at a Stevie Ray Vaughan concert, but among the cubicles, I'm so far removed from that fantasy that pretending to be cool is pretty much out of the question. I tried wearing it like chatelaine around a belt loop, perhaps the worst thing I have ever done. I'm haunted by how it much of a tool it made me feel.

Kevin and I conclude that there must be a viable alternative! A little surfing revealed an entire industry devoted just to this aspect of modern life.

The URLs crack me up...
nametagsource.com
IDZone.com
IDSuperstore.com
allID.com
allthingsID.com
lanyardsonly.com
lowpricelanyards.com
lanyardfactory.com
lanyardsupply.com

There are a lot of choices...



















Kevin is threatening to go for the arm band. I think I'll just stick with what works. Rules be damned. I'll keep my ID in my wallet. Although that pirate looks pretty cool. Hmm.
