You can’t teach a new horse old tricks

Mat has been mixing up his metaphors yet again!

He is always doing it, so much so I have considered writing them all down and writing a book about it.

This is the third one that he’s messed up in the past month…

At the beginning of the month during a meeting with a potential client he said “ in the flash of an eye “ instead of in a blink of an eye.

A week later, with the same client he said that we would kill 2 stones with 1 bird… Yes, let that sink in for a minute.

Imagine me watching him say that!!

A few days later we had “ Crossing the I’s and dotting the T’s.“

Luckily, everyone in the business meeting seemed to miss out on hearing that absolute gem of a line.

OR perhaps they just pretended to miss it.

The kids also find it hilarious when he does it.

It’s so funny to see them bring it up at the hat of a drop…

Oops, seems like living with Mat has had its effect on me too.

While these metaphors from Mat are undoubtedly hilarious, luckily I don’t mess up my metaphors as much…

My favourite one is time is money.

I like this because it is so true.

Every second wasted is costing businesses money.

Are you wasting money trying to find the right signage solution?

Are you spending time sourcing different promotional products, printed products or display solution from various suppliers?

If so STOP!!!!!!

We can help make this simple by using one supplier for all of these, us.
