The Following Is An Absolutely True Story
Would I ever make anything up just to get laugh? Never.
Would I stretch a story just a little bit? This may have happened once or twice when I was in high school.
Last week, I visited a major east coast glazing contractor. (I can’t mention the name because this was a consulting client.) After a two-hour meeting, I asked to visit the men’s room. I was directed to the men’s room in the metal fabrication shop. On the sink counter, there was a two-foot high stack of magazines. Looking at them, they were all MAXIM, a magazine more known for string bikinis than information for the glass industry. Of course, I thought this to be an odd choice of fine literature for the men’s room.
But then, I saw it. The third magazine down, in this stack of a hundred, was USGlass — our magazine. My chest burst with pride. Someone, three people back, had read USGlass when he had a choice — string bikinis or learning more about everything that has to do with glass.
I knew right then and there that this company’s situation would be resolved.
The moral of the story? Well, I guess there really isn’t one that fits other than to say keep reading USGlass and only occasionally look at a string bikini in the men’s room.
