If you wash the dog poo off of your tennis shoes in the kitchen sink…

08 Oct

Remember to move them outside before your wife gets home.  No harm, no foul… right?  I mean I rinsed everything down with soap and water after.  Funny how many things there are in life that we freak out about because of the mental “image?”  The three second rule, if you drop a cookie on the floor.  I’m sure nobody out there has ever dropped a brat through the BBQ grate and washed it off and put it back…. No harm, no foul. 

How many companies have launched their first email campaign with a ripped off “spam list” for the “just this once” press release.  We promise to use an opt-in list from now on, well at least to honor those who chose to opt out after the first blast.  Business ethics are largely a personal choice;  Its left up to ones individual Karma.  The only thing I caution is this:  every time we use “grey” marketing, whether its keyword stuffing, or clicking a bunch of times on our competitor’s ad, it gets a bit easier.  The more you do it the easier it gets.  The easier it gets, the more you do it.   Eventually it will catch up with you.

    Yes, ethical lapses are a slipery slope. You speak with uncommon authority about washing your shoes in the kichen sink — you are officially never allowed in MY kitchen!
