Would you like fries or a shake wth that lease?

Here's a very cool story about the new GC of Home Depot having to spend two weeks as a entry-level store clerk as part of taking the job.

I'm not an in-house guy but I love the idea and would relish the prospect. Spending time on the front line is a good thing; it gives you perspective, in my opinion. I'm sure HD is not the only company to do this; McDonald's, IIRC, has been doing or encouraging this forever.
