To all the guys, wearing tie privat and/or at work - this thursday will be german "Weiberfasching". the habit is - the female take the right (have the right) to cut off mens tie (the symbolic - I have no clue) - the men got the right to be kissed/get a kiss.
........... OK, might be strange for some... but now you know.
So - if you have to wear a tie - take the old one, you do not like at all - so the loss did not hurt too much. - beside that, have fun to be kissed :-)
So, if there is a good looking woman in the office, wear ten ties?
sounds like a plan.......
