Blog Fodder

I think Eric and Jim are onto something with their "I have a blog, and I'm not afraid to use it" slogan that bloggers should be required to wear at all times. Although then, we might not be able to get our hands on blogworthy material as easily. Case in point (although I don't think my Company's awareness of my blog would alter their decisions on matters such as signage...and don't get me wrong, I also don't suspect I'm flying under the radar with this thing, it's just a matter of time before my blog becomes fodder for my personnel file):

In our lobby, by the elevator, is the following sign:

"Visitors allowed only if properly escorted."

What concerns me is the use of the word, "properly." What constitutes a "proper" escort, as opposed to an "improper" one? I shudder to think what goes on in our building.

So, to ensure propriety perhaps there should be an escort, um, service... nevermind.

Exactly! ;-)

Oh come now, we know all about the secret lives of accountants...speaking of which, it just occurred to me that I finally have someone who can give me a definitive answer on this: Is it true there's no accounting for taste?

I'd worry more about the word escort...

can I say that???

Beth, if there is, I haven't figured it out yet. ;-)

Emma, I think it was the need to qualify the word "escort" that bothered me most, but yes, the word "escort" is at the heart of all that is wrong with this sign. ;-)
