Mobile Tie Service.

The story starts right when you are having your coffee...
  [vote for,

Today is a big day. In 30 minutes you will make a presentation to the upper management that will probably change your life. You are pacing up and down... nervous. And then you decide to have some coffee. In the excitement you tilt the glass a bit too much and it stains your tie. Egad. What do I do now? This is the beginning of the end. This new service is for those very moments. Call the mobile tie service. Tell them what shirt color you have or just what tie you want and they dispatch a tie to your office within the next 30 minutes or your money back.

       Ooh, good! And I just love the "Egad"!!! One croissant for each! (IF I could.)

       I'm afraid I would use this so much so (+) from me.

       perhaps ties should come with a plastic cover for those more casual moments and mealtimes/coffee breaks

       Great idea. Have a croissant with your coffee.

       Twin Ion Engine, is stands for.

       It's a military acronym for a piece of neckwear. It stands for "Thread-like item, extraneous"

       I like the concept of having a twin ion engine delivered at the last minute...   

       "I must get to the Death Star on schedule!"   

       "No problem, just a moment and - OK, there you go. Credit chip is processed, have a better one."

       How likely is it that you'll get coffee on your tie whilst sparing your shirt, forsooth?   

       A better service would deliver a co- ordinated tie-shirt combo.

       Will they offer Bow, Bola, and/or tie a double windsor knot for me with a european underfold?
