When I came to work for this company six years ago, we had about 40 employees. Now we’ve got 180. In the process of finding places for all these people to sit, we annexed space that once housed an architectural firm and we took over Tommy Hilfiger’s old showroom space. We overtook Tommy about two years ago. Well, a gentleman just stopped by from the Comptroller’s Office, looking for Tommy. He had a badge around his neck.
“Oh, no,” I said. “You want some taxes or something, don’t you?”
“Yeah, something like that,” he said, without breaking a smile.
So, um, message to Tommy Hilfiger: Duck!
