Research Assistance Needed

Please help us conduct some research.  We are looking for stories about either Common Sense or Stupid People Syndrome (sm) for an upcoming book.

Submit your story below.  Include your name, city and state, and e-mail address so that we may give you credit.  (Don’t worry, we won’t share your e-mail address with anyone but our staff!)

Here are a couple of true stories of people who made the wrong choice for naming a business…sent by the “Braintrainer’s” college roommate!

1… Back in 1984, my very good friend, whose last name was “Love”, started his own custodial service business.  He had business cards printed up and spread them all over town.  The cards said “Love Services” and had his home phone number.  Well poor ol’ Love lived with his girlfriend and her teenage daughter, and the two women were NOT amused when they started getting phone calls from men who thought it was an escort service!  “Love Services”… what else are they going to think?

2… Getting arrested for Driving While Intoxicated was the kiss of death when I was in the Army.  It didn’t matter who you were or what your rank was or how close you were to retirement, if you got a DWI you had about 30 days to process out. Gone… History… Fired.  So it was always command policy to try to discourage soldiers from driving after they had been drinking.  In 1986 I was in the Army stationed at a tiny place in rural Alaska called Fort Greely.  It is now closed, but back then it had about 500 soldiers assigned there.  They had an Officer’s Club and an NCO Club, both very popular places to go and get knee-walking drunk, but the base was so small that both of the clubs were losing money.  It was decided to combine the two clubs into one “community club” that would be open to all ranks.  The installation commander, a colonel and a very fine man, held a contest to “name the club”, with the winner getting a $25 savings bond.  The colonel himself would choose the winning submission for the new club name.

There is a tree that grows in Alaska called the diamond willow.  Someone submitted, and the colonel chose the name “Diamond Willow Inn.”  The Fort Greely maintenence shop made a beautiful sign to go out in front of the building, and everybody started calling the place the DWI!  The poor colonel was mortified.

Thanks so much for your help!
