I am in a pretty unique situation where I have to constantly watch what I say in front of my clients. I tend to be very opinionated and very direct, so when it comes to my true feelings on social subjects, political views and personalities, I usually keep those to myself.
It can be hard when you want to verbally abuse some man that you see in a restaurant wearing a pink pair of Croc’s. Or you see a 300-plus pound woman driving a Honda Fit. Even comments about sales people in some dealerships who dress like they work behind the counter at a hair salon never can creep out.
But one thing that will, one thing that just continues to amaze me to no end… People who walk through an airport wearing one of those travel neck pillows around their neck. I always take advantage of an airport shoeshine booth – so I get to do a lot of people watching, but these people are so far beyond me. How can you walk around and have people see you with one of these goofball contraptions around your neck. I wouldn’t even let people see me on the airplane with one, but I realize everybody is different.
It is kind of like the Kia Soul – I guess the same people that would ride around in this car maybe the type who would walk around an airport with a pink pillow around their neck.
At least Kia has found a small, yet goofy target market for what is the “Travel Neck Pillows of the super-sub-compact-vehicle line.”
