Something you should never, ever do…

Writing_on_hands

One of my all time pet hates is writing on the backs (or insides) of hands.  No matter how desperate you are to write something down or remember something – never, ever, ever write it on your hand.  It looks truly terrible & it portrays you as a disorganised individual with no awareness of or concern about your personal appearance.

Nearly as bad as the young man I interviewed for a sales job recently – on leaving our building he stood on top of the mail in our hallway instead of picking it up & handing it to me – he didn’t get the job & he’s probably still wondering why!  This incident still makes our team laugh.

Little things really do matter.

  1. I was invigilating an exam once and a first year student held up his hand to ask a question. On the inside of his hand he’d written his cribs. His face when he realised what he’d done, the tears that followed. It meant a compulsory zero in the exam, loss of holidays and, worst of all, a letter home saying he’d been caught cheating in an exam. Tough days for students at http://www.zamorano.edu/

  2. That’s a great little story, Andy. Reminds me of the Red Dwarf episode where Rimmer covers pretty much his entire body with cribs – except for “a couple of blanks” – his buttocks!
