Corporate Cardboard??

Posted by admin

Yesterday, I observed a strange thing.   While making a u-turn at a busy intersection, I noticed a very well-dressed and well manicured corporate-looking man holding a cardboard sign on the side of the road.  The sign reflected something to do with him being out of work and needing a job, written in black marker.  It made me wonder, what was he trying to achieve?  He certainly stood out from the usual cardboard sign sector, but was he hoping that someone would pull up at that busy corner and have him hop in the back of a truck?  Dressed and groomed like that?   I’m still wondering today how his plan of attack is working for him.  It certainly was a unique and memorable approach to unemployment and/or panhandling, but I have to question the pay-out.  Maybe if he put a phone number on his sign?  Hmmm…
