Name Tags

Have you ever traveled to a very small town, and you have driven down the road and every car or truck you pass..... the person waves at you?...and you wave back and smile a little, and think 'this is so cool!' soon you get used to it and then you are the 'first' one to wave...and it just make you feel like you belong!

Where I live that wouldn't work...we try to not even make eye contact, let alone wave...but I had a thought.....wouldn't the world be a better place if everyone wore name tags....I know crazy as it sounds, just think of it for a moment....Every person you met would have a would give us a sense of that we have not had for 50 years...We could say good morning Mrs. Jones or Hello little Kayla......We would take responsibility for our neighbors, when they were in need we would come to their aid...we would be good citizens......front porch and picket fence folks, the kind of people you would be glad all over to know...Just a thought...

Cheers to Happy  !!


  1. Are you a Seinfeld fan? That was one of the ideas in an episode. That everybody wear nametags.

  2. I will have to see if I can find that episode!
    the truth is I wear my name sewn on my blouse at work, and of course I am at the disadvantage. Everyone knows my name and I know no there my mind went...imagining everyone with a nametag..I love the idea!

  3. I almost always take a quick glance at the cashier's name tag at any store where they may wear one, and before I leave I say thank you to them and use their name. People brighten just a bit when they are "noticed" in this way. It makes me feel good too!
