This comic was inspired by Michael’s email “Most of us went to a co-workers wedding during the Saturday shift. The manager, a few workers, and I went back to the store after. I left my tie on the rest of the day, and for some reason despite having no “Manager” title on my name tag (I was assigned one of the two “Book God” nametags then) they talked to me as if I were the manager. I found out the manager was pointing people to me when they were asking to see the manager.”

Thanks for the email Michael! For thus is the awesome power of the “Power Tie.”
