Editor's Picks: United We Stand
Autumn leaves are brown, the skies are gray, and piles of rotting leaves have taken the place of your yard. It is time for a trip to Home Depot to buy the rake you meant to pick up in August. Once you enter the haven of do-it-yourselfers, you might be a bit overwhelmed by the cascading rows of supplies. The rake aisle itself presents enough options to make even Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor intimated. Then comes the friendliest sight inside the warehouse of home goods: an orange-aproned employee. You know once that orange apron approaches you, all of your concerns will be assuaged. The uniformed worker can tell you the best rake for maple leaves or the least dangerous one to have around children. In the words of Tim Taylor on Home Improvement, "A real man doesn't need a manual, but he does need a Home Depot employee in an orange apron." We added the last part, but you get the point.
The real lesson here: uniforms are good. So turn to page 90 of Promo Marketing's October issue to see the best in aprons and uniforms.
