3 bits of lovely banter on “business cards”

    I’d take it to mean that they are always marketing themselves even when they’re not at work, being prepared for any chance encounter with someone to become a business opportunity. In the movie “Groundhog Day” Bill Murray’s character runs into a guy he went to school with, and within a couple of minutes the guy is trying to sell him insurance. That’s the type of personality that comes to mind. I can’t think of a word that quite describes that.

    I’d like to know who, ‘like Americans’? That way we’d also discover who likes Americans!
