Reading Merlin Mann is always rewarding

While getting the URL for Merlin’s email handling tips for a friend, I got sucked into reading more  and came upon this lovely idea:

The Forehead Ticket Trick

So,
you’re going to a ticketed event, like a concert or a ball game. It’s
out of town. You’re carpooling with four other people. How do you
ensure that everyone in the car has their ticket with them?

The car doesn’t move until each person takes out their ticket and holds it to their forehead.   

Been doing it for 20 years, and you’d be amazed how often it saves the day.

from Merlin Mann’s 43 Folders site.

  1. I dunno – usually if I’m going to an event like that (say, a baseball game), we’d just have the person who ordered the tickets hold on to them until we got to the event. (Also, that person is usually me, and I’m kinda OCD about remembering tickets and whatnot if I’m going somewhere.)
