Step Away from the Herd
You want to be unique and stand out from the crowd? Be an individual? No need to dye your hair purple or get a neck tattoo. All you have to do is: be frugal. Guaranteed you will probably be the only one of your coworkers who isn’t a massive, plugged-in, consuming drone like 99% of North American society.
When you brown bag your lunch instead of spending ten bucks on fast food junk, your coworkers will almost break their necks trying to see what is creating the wonderful smells coming from your cubicle as you eat your delicious homemade meals. Ride your bike to work instead of driving a gas guzzling piece of crap like all the other lemmings and believe me you will be the talk of the entire floor at work. Every time you get on the elevator with your bike helmet, people will immediately start asking a million questions about this amazing feat that you have accomplished.
Not individualistic enough for you? You want to go hard core? Alright then. Just tell people that you don’t have any tv. That will Blow. Their. Minds. And when you rattle off all the other things you manage to accomplish because you didn’t waste your life in front of an idiot box, they will stare at you open mouthed as if you are someone from another planet.
You want to be an individual? Be frugal. Only then will you know what it is like to stand out from the crowd.
