At a networking event this week, after the formal part was done, I was chatting with the woman I had sat next to. While our conversation was not earth-shaking, we were square-on facing each other. All of a sudden another networker interrupted us to give us his card.
Now I tell ya'.
That doesn't get you anywhere with me.
The message this person delivered, was, "I am so important that what you're saying to each other absolutely is beneath me."
People who obnoxiously shove their business cards under my nose are wasting those cards. If they go home at all, they are tossed into the trash.
I know, I know! Someone is going to get on my case about this and say that I should be more gracious.
