@D2, what the fuck? Nothing wrong with two sprays of cologne to the inside of wrists before you head out for the day. Whether it's for work or a date or a night out with friends. You might want to leave your basement every now and then

Nothing worse than when a team member shows up wearing cologne or perfume. Take a shower and use proper hygiene and you'll be fine. Love the basement quote as well. Why would I be in a basement? @ACN Should I assume you live in a shitty studio in jersey city getting ready to go out for your one night a week in the city so you can tell girls/guys you are a consultant when in reality you run test scripts for a SAP implementation?

No one can tell the difference between a 600 and a 30 dollar belt. Spend it on their shoes. Ferragamo shoes make a difference

I think @D2 doesn't know the difference between quality cologne and a can of Axe Africa. Christ.
