Guys... please don't ever EVER do this....



I am sure that most guys don't really think about if their outfit for the day is acceptable, or if everything they wear/carry is appropriate, but in today's superficial professional world, appearance does make a difference.  This morning, I saw a cute guy, dressed in a nice pin-strip suit with nicely gelled hair, and carrying a.... BROWN PAPER LUNCH BAG in his hand.  I didn't know what to think of it at first because together, they looked so wrong and so mis-matched. What was he thinking?!  So my conclusion was that he probably just graduated college, working his first job and didn't know any better.  Not knowing who he is or where he came from, a total stranger made such harsh judgment, just imagine what kind of impression it will leave to his boss or client if they saw what I saw (granted, I could have been a little too judgmental).

It got me thinking though.  In life, it is often the little details that make a big difference.  That guy's precious 30 mins in the morning was ruined by an insignificant paper lunch bag.  His intension of trying to look more mature and sharp for work was counteracted by again, the insignificant paper lunch bag.  For me, that paper lunch bag was the only thing I could focus on.  So all you yuppies out there, please don't ever EVER carry around a brown paper lunch bag out in the open when you are on your way to work.  It ruins your image....
