    Earlier this year, my working title changed so I was getting new business cards. I told them to include my professional certification but someone messed up so they had to re-order them.

    Now I have one box of wrong cards plus all the old cards I have with my old title on them.

    I know the smart thing would be to destroy them to prevent some sucker from impersonating me and getting me in trouble but I'd like to do something creative with them.

    So what do I do with them? Any ideas?

    I tried leaning them together like playing cards to make a structure...but they are too small &amp; slippery. Or maybe I had too much coffee that day ;)

    Not a bad idea.

    Every couple of years there is a really huge trade show that my company sends me to...the Global Petroleum Show. There are tons of booths that have the "fish bowls" with great prizes. The first time I went, I dropped at least a hundred cards, hopping to win a prize.

    ....then I learned the cold hard truth. Most people just sort through the cards and give the prizes to people who are or could be customers. My company is not likely to buy anything from any of the companies there so nobody would pick me anyway. :(

    Gosh no, not trade shows, that's guaranteed to get you a billion sales calls. I mean like a free sub at Subway or free dry cleaning or something :)

    then put it in a bucket of water for a week until it all goes gloopy.
    And flush it down the lav.
