Do you have any nicknames for your coworkers or employees? Create a custom engraved nameplate to proudly display them. It’s such a simple way to boost company morale! Here’s an example of one proudly displayed at IDville. It never fails to make me grin! 

It is my honor to introduce you to one of our super-system specialists at the ‘ville, Lee, more commonly referred to as “Bacon Boy.”  

You might be wondering-“How is one deemed the ‘Bacon Boy’?”

Well, the story behind the infamous “Bacon Boy” is really a pretty simple one. Here it is, straight from the horse’s mouth:

Bacon Boy: “During my interview process, Jennifer (sales manager) asked the hard-hitting questions and then informed me that two senior members of the team were going to interview me also.

In walked two experienced system specialists, Jason and Alan. They introduced themselves, and then Jason took over. After a few minutes he turned to Alan for his turn of questioning.

Alan said with a stern face ‘I have one important question. You can take as much time as you need to think about this, but think hard about your answer before you reply. What is your opinion on…bacon?’

I couldn’t decide if I was more shocked by the question at hand or that he was able to hold a straight face while asking it. Little did I know that what I was about to say next would create an identity for me that would stick.  

I said, ‘I think bacon is one of God’s greatest gifts to mankind.’ With the tension broken, I proceed to inform them about a revolutionary way to cook bacon called the bacon weave (shown right). A bacon weave is exactly what it sounds like-strips of bacon woven together to create a blanket of bacon.   

From that moment on, I received multiple inquires to the art of the bacon weave and was deemed bacon boy. They even created a custom nameplate for my special nickname that I display proudly at my desk!”

Well there you have it folks-the story behind the one-of–a-kind nameplate and the nickname.

And nobody ever wonders what Lee will bring as his dish to company potlucks anymore…bacon of course!

If you call in today, you might get lucky enough to talk to this super-system specialist!
