Indian Photo ID scam

Reminds me of when I went to visit our branch in Pune, we never had photo ID's in the UK.

First day I had a sweaty queueing up to get onto the compound and sign in at the gatehouse.

But I noticed everyone with ID's just waved them at the guard and walked straight in.

So during the day I cobbled together a company ID and printed it out on the colour printer.

Stuck it in a spare visitor's badge holder - job done! No more sweating buckets and straight in.

Some of my Indian colleagues thought it was a little cheeky I think :-)
