The Standing Men are like prostitutes. Our customers are discriminating -- they size us up. They like us young and strong, muscular but harmless-looking. They don't like a contrabida face. They don't want insolence. If you have long hair, it's better to hide it under a cap, and it's better to be clean-shaven -- only the oyabun is permitted a beard. It's important to be seen standing. If you were sitting, that would mean you are just loafing around on the gemba. The sachos look us up and down, and we greet them as politely as we know how. Their method of rejection is not to return our greetings. Every day begins with this little humiliaton. We put our lives, unquestioningly, in their hands.
