You are not the show

There is a reason companies have dress codes. It’s more than conformity.

There is a reason companies have logos. It’s more than publicity.

There is a reason companies regulate what you can and cannot say about the products you sell. It’s more than a legal technicality.

You are not the show.

While you may have your individual style, we don’t want to deny you the opportunity to celebrate your uniqueness.

But when you are on stage portraying the role that has already been written for you, all we ask is that you stay in character until the scene ends. The writers, producers and directors thank you.

So do your Guests.

Otherwise, they’ll know you’re not sincere and they may leave before the play is over. They might even give you a bad review.

    I agree wholeheartedly. When customers’ expectations are not met, or they sense difference, it leaves them off balance. And whatever good you do — will never outweigh the difference (or bad) they sense.

    That’s why when someone comes in with visible tattoos and piercings and wants a job, I tell them thank you. . . we’re not hiring. It would be too much of a distraction.
