Do you know what it is like?

Some years back I was interviewed on camera by a local TV station on a topical subject for that city. I might add, at this stage, I am a rather quiet introvert who would rather not be in the limelight.

The next morning I set out for work and popped into a restaurant for Dim Sum and the whole place went quiet and all stared at me

I swore I would never live through that experience again, god knows how stars must deal with it.

Well the other day my boss asked me if he could use my picture on the rear end of the new workshop and in promotion pamphlets, I agreed. No big deal I thought.

Today I had to take a GL to the new workshop so the lifts could be tested and almost 2km from the workshop I could see a picture of myself on the biggest board I ever seen. OMG I am going to be a hermit in that district now

ERIC.

Perhaps your mug is appealing to a certain type of audience.

It is and they are all female, but I do have a wife and when she sees this pic she is going into OH NO mode. And as I said it can be seen by aircraft coming in to land so how can I hide it from her?

If you really want the anonymity, the addition or subtraction of facial hair will put you back in the shadows. Well, as much as a 6 footish anglo-saxon male can be in the shadows in the PRC.
