There Is No Tiger Tee
"MAN IS NOT WORRIED BY REAL PROBLEMS SO MUCH AS BY HIS IMAGINED ANXIETIES ABOUT REAL PROBLEMS."
He botched an important client presentation in front of his bosses earlier that day and wasn't sure if he would still have a job the next morning. Even though it was late in the night, he got dressed and went down to the hotel bar.
The only other person there was a tough-looking Polish bartender with a thick accent smoking a cigarette.
"Can I have a gin a tonic please?" asked the businessman.
The bartender took a long drag of her cigarette and replied, "Yes, you could have something dull, unremarkable... or you could have the best vodka you've ever had... up to you."
"Sure, yeah, I'll have the vodka..."
She reached deep under the bar and pulled out a bottle of Polish vodka, poured him a shot and one for herself.
As she was pouring, the businessman noticed a phrase tattooed on her hand. This was before tattoos were as popular and it looked as if it could've been self-made.
"What does that say?" he asked.
"20,000 years ago... not so good. You could get killed by a tiger, or bear, or you fall through the ice... you know? And we're here now because back then, we learned to freak out about danger... back then, everything was trying to kill you. But 20,000 years later, now we have a bad meeting, and we freak out... you know? But, it's not gonna kill us... ok?
It says... Nie ma tygrysa. There is no tiger."
Is there something in your life causing you stress?
A potentially bad outcome that is keeping you up at night?
If this potential scenario was to happen, would it kill you?
Nie ma tygrysa, 🐅
PS. He found out later, the woman was not a hotel employee, just another guest like him who was up late and climbed behind the bar.
PPS. The man in this story is Neal Foard, listen to him tell the fantastic full version here. We heard his story this week and it hit home for us, hope it hits home for you too. If so, forward this email to someone you think should start their week with it also. 🙏🏼🏴
This fitted tee is a cotton/poly blend fabric meant to stand up to consistent wear.
HOW TO CARE FOR GFDD PRINTED GARMENTS:
- Turn garment inside out.
- Wash similar fabrics together (if you have the entire collection of GFDD tees, this should be easy...)
- Wash in cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use a mild detergent.
- **Do not use liquid fabric softener**
- If possible, avoid drying in a dryer. Hang or lay flat to dry.
Soft, comfortable & true to size. Also a great reminder to not let fear hold you back…
great tee as with all of my previous ones I have ordered from GFDD. Athletic fit and soft fabric.
Best material, best fit. Best damn message 🤘🏼
This is the second order I've placed with GFDD, all for t-shirts. The quality is great as the ones I've previously ordered are still going strong. I wear them on the motorcycle often so they take a beating. I will absolutely be back for more!
Have ya ever had that one T-shirt, that one sweatshirt or even that one pair of jeans that fits just the way you like? THE one that fits so good you just wanna wear it everyday because it still fits just how you like, even after multiple wears and washes? That's my Risk Happy sweatshirt. It's THE one ❤️
We love all the shirts we’ve purchased from GFDD. Great quality, super soft.
Really nice and confortable tshirt, cool design
Smile More Checkerboard Hat
Bought this shirt and a few others. All in the same size (XL) as I was thinking it would be oversized on me according to the size chart. All shirts for different and are smaller than expected fits more like other basic Ts in a medium. Otherwise love the shirts and grahics.
Love this hat! Made by Zephyr. Same brand as my other every day wear hat. I’d buy it again for sure! Must have if you love being on two wheels. GFDD
Got these stickers for my fiancé with the DWDY hoodie as his birthday gift and he LOVES them! Great quality and the designs are fantastic. Keep it up, guys!
I'm a motorcycle rider and pilot in the military and wear it on my flight suit, everyone I work with loves it!! Good quality, great Velcro.
Looks dope, exactly what I expected. Great communication throughout the whole transaction. Highly recommend GFDD.
