in lisbon people don’t pick up after their dogs. they just don’t do it. so, there is dog shit everywhere and you need to always be on your game otherwise you lose.
today i had a meeting with a new client. they welcomed me in, i sat down at their conference table and took off my jacket. then i smelled something bad. i looked around for a second hoping to find something other than the big hunk of wet mushy dog shit flopping off of my shoe. great first impression, me waddling out of their office on the way to the bathroom to scrub some dog’s shit off of my shoe.
