Let’s say one of your best furniture salesmen shows up at work one morning with an enormous, new tattoo of a blue figure with four arms covering most of the side of his neck. As an employer, you’re more than a little dismayed that this image might be off-putting to the families that come in wanting to put a new dinette on lay-away. So you move the employee to the warehouse and let him know that if he wants to keep his job, he better get really good at operating the fork lift, because he’s never going to see the sales floor again, not with that tattoo.
