My "Really, Connor?" Moment Tue, Sep 20, 2016
This last weekend I traveled down south to visit the University of Mississippi to watch the Ole Miss vs. Alabama football game. I had been looking forward to this trip for the last couple of weeks and was very excited when the day came for me to leave.
After a very long night of travel, I had arrived at my destination. As I slipped off my sweatpants and put my regular shorts on, I reached into my suitcase for my belt, but I couldn't find it. When I realized I had forgotten to pack it I asked myself the ever so common question "really, Connor?" How does someone who works for a belt company forget to bring a belt? I still don’t know the answer to that question, but I had to fix the problem. I am ashamed to say it, but I went to the store and bought myself a belt...and, yes, it had holes.
I wanted to share this “really, Connor?” moment with you because it made me really appreciate how great our product is. Over the course of the weekend I constantly caught myself trying to tighten the belt by pulling the leather through the buckle, or trying to release the belt by pulling on the buckle, which I was obviously unable to do. It was easy for me to feel the difference when first making the switch from a regular belt to a SlideBelt, but it is even more noticeable when having to go back and use a traditional belt.
Anyway, this experience made me that much more proud of our products and our company as a whole. Keep up the great work, and make sure you packed a belt before you go on your next trip!
