I bumped into an ex colleague yesterday and spotted that he was wearing a pin badge on his lapel sporting the name of his company (a very large insurance broker). After taking the piss out of him a bit he explained that it was a requirement. Bloody idiots!
Thinking back, I had heard of this before, I was told a story about someone sharing a lift with the CEO of said company. Spotting that his employee was not wearing his badge he asked where it was. The employee's response was
"Sorry Sir, I must have left it on my pyjamas"
I have no doubt that this never happened, but I like the story anyway
