Creative Ideas You have left or given your Business Card to ?

Business Cards may be the cheapest form of advertising yourself. Easy to give. Easy to leave. Where have you left yours? Maybe you don't want to give up all your secrets but please share one. Oddest place you left your card or most surprising return from a card given out. - I remember a book I read where the author was at a ballgame and he tossed a coupel dozen cards in the air after a homerun. I've seen a guy have his business card (actual size) tattooed on his forearm. We all know the simple leave your card with the paid check after dining at a restaurant. 

I'm fairly new to A.R. so perhaps this has been bantered about already.. if not ro for some newbies let's share...

Anybody want to share a story, a thought, an idea ......................

Good afternoon John - I knew this agent who always left his at the gas pump. He got a listing from it the other day.

wow! great ideas! I wish more people had responded. I always leave my card with the tip at a restaurant. But if you are going to do that, make sure that the tip is extraordinary!

I'm with Kimberly, would love to hear more ideas.  I'm not that creative. The power of a handwritten note is amazing. I always include a business card with it.  I'm amazed how they turn into referrals. I have a guy at church who has made it a practice of handing my cards out.  He came up to me Sunday and said he needed more cards!
