Only once has an employer had business cards made up for me. Mind you, I've only had three "real" jobs in my entire life. The first time was way back in 1999 when I was working for a horrible engineering firm. They gave me a box full of business cards. I quit the job a month later. I will say that I didn't know for sure if I was going to quit when the cards were made up. Oh well.
Last week, my current company delivered business cards to all their employees. When I went to the open house last Thursday, I saw mine for first time. These cards kick ass. For one, they are made of thick card stock. A single card could probably stop a .22 calibre bullet thrown by a child at a distance of 10 feet. The front of the card has two shades of gun-metal gray. There's a slight sheen to the front so that it catches the light a bit. The front has all the particular employee info on it, the back lists the company address and web site.
I suppose when you work for a video game company, your business cards have to be a bit on the flashy side. Well, I wonder if history will repeat itself. Will I somehow quit a month from now? Can fate be changed?
In completely other news, I'd like everyone to help out a fellow blogger. My friend Tyson is considering shaving his head. He wants you, yes you, to help him decide if he should proceed with this action. Please read his latest post and leave your comments.
