I rarely look at name tags anymore. I am so nearsighted that I have to get THISCLOSE to read them. If I need to know someone's name, and they are female and wearing a name tag, I bring up the situation:

"My apologies. I am really myopic. I didn't want to have to stare at the area where you have your tag pinned."

The situation usually resolves itself gracefully, and introductions are made verbally.

Kevin McLauchlan said, "As a male who is more fascinated by other female
attributes, I've been embarrassed to catch myself with eyes lingering on the
chest of women who wear:
a) name tags
b) message t-shirts.....
"Hmm. Maybe stores and other service businesses should have their employees
wear name tags on
hats or on waist-belts... .. um... never mind. Politically correct
logistics are a beeyatch."
_______________________________________
Hint to women who wear nametags: At social events or meetings where nametags
are worn, I put mine high on my left shoulder instead of my chest. Short
woman's defense, I guess.
