After three days wearing a bow tie to work, never having worn a bow tie to work before, people grew suspicious. We had a company-wide meeting at which the bow tie became a central “talking point.” For the rest of the day, the bow tie – not the man – became the center of attention. No one saw me. I’d been replaced by a glittering, gold and navy bow tie. Today’s lesson learned, if you wear a bow tie too many days in a row, and you’re not known for wearing bow ties, it will become the focus.
