If everyone in the world had name tags, what would yours say


Let’s see if this thread goes anywhere… Thanks for suggesting I start it qtowngirl.

In an effort to make things easier to remember; we should start a worldwide movement where people would wear name tags with short description of their history, including but not limited to their interests, aspirations, affiliations and any other information deem important to identifying them. That shouldn’t be too hard to do, right?

What would your name tag say?

This is what mine would say

• Wants to start a suburban homesteading movement, but his wife veto’s raising a pig in their backyard (probably a good idea but he’ll warm her up to chickens)

• Wants to hike all the 4,000 footers in the New England area. (yes our mountains are smaller here, stupid glaciers)

• Likes to disappear into the woods to emerge with baskets full of edible mushrooms and plants.

• Use to brew beer but when drinking was no longer an option, he then switched to curing meats (salami, bacon, pancetta, kielbasa etc.) A happy basement is one that looks like a meat locker.

• Went bungee jumping once and then swore to never do it again.

• Defender of justice.

• Has visited 7 countries on three continents.

• Has no regard for grammar and spelling. (not by choice)

• Finds happiness in nature..... truly

I dont think I would like to be "forced" to wear a name tag with all my personal information on it. So many things cross my mind like stalkers and serial killers who have specific criteria they can find on the tags.

That and the fact that just because I dont want to do any of the things on your name tag, or have done any of the things on your name tag, doesnt mean we cant be good friends. I could see that becoming a way to filter out people who dont agree with what you do.

This came out of the Forgetting names/faces? thread.

It was just for fun and another way for people to express / share their interests. Sorry if it offended you.

Yeah as P-Funk said it was only intended to help remember names and faces. And people could put as much or as little as they wanted on it; lots like he said or just your name and that you're an engineer who likes pizza (hypothetical here). Seizurrific's was funny, and I LOL when I read Funk's about the basement/meat locker.

And Rae believe me I totally respect you, but the stalker and serial killer avoidance went out the window when Facebook started.

Well christ, now I wonder if I should take some of that info down. Actually, I guess its a more elaborate version of my profile, so bring it on stalkers (but please be nice, I'm fragile, like a porcelain doll)

Lol. I wasnt offended, but with the increase in serial killings in my area (although the women are "mising" several people are starting to connect the dots thats its a serial killer EEK) I was just saying that having someone forced to even display their name would be against privacy.

I for one would not. I realize that I have a facebook account, and its actually very hard to search someone on facebook if you dont know their name. If you have your account locked enough, Nobody other than your friends can get in.

Didnt mean to hijack the thread, just stating something I noticed with it.

The whole name tag idea came out of issues of memory loss related to epilepsy. How it would be great if there was a little breakdown of all the people you met, so when you ran into them again, you could remember who they are. I guess the point was lost somewhere along the way. Just let this thread sink to the bottom and we will be done with it.

This is so hard! I wonder if the name tag should read how other people see me or how I see me?

Still waters run deep (and I would love to be kayaking on those waters)
People pleaser
Mom of 3 darlings
Voracious reader
I still believe in manners
and I'm a little afraid of the dark
I enjoy the simple pleasures of life and laughing
I love my husband and the smell of freshly cut grass
I find people fascinating but please let me get to know you
on a one on one basis rather than at a loud party
If you discover me having a seizure offer me a nice cup of silent tea afterwards
and I'll offer you a lopsided smile and my eternal gratitude

That's a start anyways! I think my name tag would be silver too. I'm not a big fan of gold!

If I had a name tag for others to remember me by it would go something like this...

Maidenminx
I am fiercely protective of my son and apologise if I come off as nasty at times.
I either have lots of words or no words and frequently make little sense. If I seem super noisy and
annoying or quiet and rude, I apologise.
I strive to be good company and I love to cook.

good idea gigi,

Would shift the earth and happily live in utter poverty to cure my Sons E
Still married to the love of my life (28yrs) and it just gets better.
Cross my family and my wrath is enormous (just a family girl)
Got me 4 sisters = grew up with 6 women.
Am truly a happy person
Bit of a perfectionist on the work front
Pretty darn witty I been told
Lived in many countries
Am a serious skeptic
And can still seriously turn heads at 47 (hey gotta love me)

serendipity - Thank god I don't have to guess how to spell your name

Maiden - When you love to cook, you're always guaranteed a great meal.

Huskymom - Dogs are the best, hands down.

Seizurrific - A tracker on your keys! genius!!
