I had to get my photo taken this morning for my new railcard. The dilemma is always the same: do I smile or not. I smiled big.
I hate it when people don’t smile for photos. In high school, the tough kids used to make stern intimidating faces for their yearbook photos. Now, in business, it’s middle managers.
I’ve worked in a few places where the identification photos was featured on a directory on the corporate intranet. Too many people looked like they should have a number plate below their chin for their mug shot.
Strangely, this trait only applies to men. Real men don’t smile for security photos, I guess.
