The company I’m working for (yes, I do have a day job) comprises of people from across the globe, each with their unique cultural background, language accent, and most importantly, brand of humor.
One fine morning when I stopped by the pantry for a cup of latte (we have this awesome coffee maker), I saw this cardboard box with a paper label that says:
If you place plastic water bottle here, I will send to recycle bin
a very noble idea
A very noble idea, I thought.
Next to the recycle bin, there is another cardboard box set up by another dude who came from UK. It says:
If you leave your old, torn & dirty 5 & 10 ringgit notes here, I will recycle them into my bank
well why not? let me get you started!
I couldn’t help but get him started with 5 baht that was in my pocket somehow! And sure enough, within half an hour the box is filled with half a ringgit (literally), a 5 baht coin, and a further 30 sen. This scheme could work!
Why don’t you try this at your office?
p/s: the original recycle bin remains empty.
