There’s a little 209 in all of us. If you doubt that, put a bottle of Snapple in your refrigerator at work, come back a week later and see how you feel when it’s missing. You’ll probably end up giving the refridgerator and some of your co-workers the finger. You’ll also be mean-mugging everything and everybody while you do it. You may even trash your cubicle in a rage unless you think rationally and hit-up the local convenience store to buy another one. Then you’ll go home and smoke medicinal marijuana to subside how awful the world around you is. In fact, most people will think you’re the bad guy, even though you aren’t. It’s just the 209 in you. We all have it. You’re not bad, just mis-understood.
We don’t know if a bottle of Snapple made the Diaz Brothers who they are today. It probably didn’t. But we do know that the reason Dana White likes Ronda Rousey is because she’s just like a Diaz brother, and that’s an outstanding reason to like someone when you’re the president of a multi-billion dollar company.
“Ronda Rousey. Watching her, meeting her, knowing her. From the outside, she’s this beautiful girl who won a bronze medal in the Olympics and everything else, but when you talk to Ronda Rousey, and you get to know her, she’s a Diaz brother, inside. She’s a real fighter, and that’s what I look for in anybody, whether you’re a male or a female. She’s nasty. She’s mean. She likes to fight, and she likes to finish people. Those are the kind of people I like, whether you’re a male or a female.”
Go ahead and put “I’m just like a Diaz Brother” on your resumes. It clearly worked for Ronda Rousey. Don’t let potential employers outsource that position to China because you aren’t ‘209’ enough. You’re all ‘209’ enough if you want to be. Channel the power of the misplaced Snapple and be all the ‘209’ you can be. [Source]
