ネクタイと転勤 Ties and company transfers

先日、テレビでウルグアイのムカヒ元大統領(http://matome.naver.jp/odai/2141810938338364601)がネクタイ嫌いで付けない、と知りました。
その時、私は40年前に脱サラした時の理由を何度か聞かれたことを思い出しました。答えは“ネクタイと転勤が嫌いだったから”です。もちろん、これだけではありませんが・・・・。
私はTPOで必要最小限の場合のみネクタイを着用しますが、そうでなければ私には不要です。なぜなら、ネクタイは人間の本性を隠すことができる道具にもなります。嘘つきでもネクタイをすれば立派な紳士に見えることが多いのです。
転勤は転勤を命ぜられた社員が家庭を持ち単身赴任となる場合、多くの問題を生む可能性があります。ですから、私はそのリスクを取りたくなかったのです。
The other day on TV, I happened to know the former Uruguayan President Mujica Cordano hates ties and has never worn them.
That reminded me of the questions I had been asked several times after I became self-employed 40 years ago. The question was why I stopped working for the company I had worked for about 10 years and my answers was that I hated ties and job-related transfers though I had been a salaried man. 
I wear ties to the minimum necessary according to time, place and occasion. Otherwise they are not necessary at all because ties can hide human nature. In other words, even liars can often look fine gentlemen with ties worn. 
The company transfer often causes serious problems especially when the company workers are relocated singularly though they have their families. So I didn’t want to take the risk of it for myself and my family.
