So it’s a very strange world out there! There are all these taboos that you simply must avoid. Being at work is in some cases like walking on egg shells. There are so many things you just can’t say or do! Here’s a few examples: In a meeting don’t say “This is boring” or ‘You look nice,’ to a female colleague (if you wouldn’t say it to a male one). No No No!! How bout “Too many details about your weekend to your boss! Not! Don’t say: “It’s not my fault”…You sound like a whiner!! Don’t say…That’s a dumb idea” to a client! Don’t call anyone ‘hon’ or ‘baby’. Anything you want kept in strict confidence, don’t tell your HR Department. ‘HR professionals often have mandates to report or investigate certain information. This stuff, to me, seems to be simply common sense, right! But the world still just amazes me with some of the unbelievable stuff that shows up. Here’s a little story about an airline and a product hooking up for an interesting promotion! Diet Coke and Delta Air Lines have apologized for napkins which were handed out to plane passengers encouraging travelers to flirt with other people on board. Many people found the napkins “creepy” and suggested they were encouraging harassment. Write down your number and give it to your plane crush. You never know…” read one napkin. Delta said it “missed the mark” with the napkins, which have been removed from its aircraft. Travelers have been sharing images of the napkins, which feature an array of messages encouraging fliers to flirt with fellow passengers, on Twitter. “Be a little old school. Write down your number and give it to your plane crush. You never know…” reads one napkin. Another says: “Because you’re on a plane full of interesting people and hey… you never know.” There are even dedicated spaces on the napkins for people to write down their name and phone number. Delta has collaborated with Diet Coke for some time, but the latest napkins have generally not gone down well. “Pretty sure no one appreciated unsolicited phone numbers in the ‘good old days’ and they sure as heck don’t want the number of someone who has been gawking at them on a plane for hours today. Not a good look! This little story brings to mind some of the other phrases used in airline promotion…you know like “Fly Me’ or “The Friendly Skies” or “Leave The Driving To Us”…Oh wait that was the bus…well you get what I’m driving at (no pun intended). Who are these people???
