brings a tear to my eye

Comment by andy@cynic

Geldof is back. 🙂

Comment by George

As long as this isn’t aimed at me, I’ll print this out and put it up around the ompany. It isn’t about me is it? Remember, its contract review soon.

Comment by Lee Hill

I am very alarmed you have found your way to this blog Lee, so could I ask you to switch off or go elsewhere for all our sakes. See you tomorrow.

Comment by George

I never noticed his absence, George.

Comment by fredrik sarnblad

I just realised I didn’t respond to Lee’s comment and I think I should before one of my lovely partners decides to do so.

How can you think one of OUR clients would ever act in a manner not appropriate to their job title. You know we only deal with the best in industry. Bar one. 🙂

Comment by George

what my corporate toady partner said.

Comment by andy@cynic

My eyes, my eyes!
Actually George, this blog represents some of the reasons we use you guys so I’ll keep poking around if you don’t mind. Client perogative?

Comment by Lee Hill

yes lee, that and the fact george is one of “the mans” bitches. 🙂

Comment by andy@cynic

Excellent observation

Comment by Lee Hill

Morning Rob.

You’ve set the bar very high here. It’s not as easy as you think. I manage 22 subsidiaries with 11800 Million members of staff aiming to touch the hearts, minds and wallets of a potential 6.6 Billion customers. Sometimes I let the ball slip – after all I can’t split myself down the middle now can I?

I do try to be a guiding light for my organisation but it’s a 24/7 operation I’m running here and the pressures to deliver are becoming greater each and everyday and sometime it’s easy to loose the “human touch”. I know you don’t like hearing this; but its business.

But I will try and live up to and be worthy of my job description.

p.s Got my eye on Lee Hill too.

Comment by God

Looking forward to hearing the reasons behind this post…

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Dear God, please leave Lee alone – everyone else you can right, royally fuck over at least till the next client agency review! 🙂

Comment by Rob

i’m so looking forward to hearing where this one’s from.
and god, what the fuck are you doing justifying yourself to rob – just smite him.

Comment by lauren

He’s going nuts, the silly old bugger.

Comment by God

What are going on about now?

Comment by Satan

Dear God, while you watch Lee, spare a thought for me. I have a big day.
And tell Marcus I’ll call him tomorrow.

Comment by NP

Dear NP. I’ve sent a little army of angels to watch over you. They are middle management – but seem to know their stuff. All will be good.

Comment by God

Ok, seriously – I don’t know what brought this on, but I have a sneaky feeling that it’s nothing good.

Comment by Marcus

robs doing something that is the equivilent of releasing the virus that fucked up all the monsters in that shite war of the worlds flick.
cockroach campbell will win. he has to.

Comment by andy@cynic

I think it’s time for your annual 360 degree feedback and review session God. Strengths, weaknesses, failed objectives and targets going forward. You know the drill. Oh and if you were a country which country would you be and why – we like to inspire ceativity you know.

Comment by Outsourced Assessments Inc.

But Rob have you seen some of the job titles out there?

Comment by John Dodds

Mr Almighty, could you make Rob spill the proverbial beans please?

Comment by Mere Mortal

Somehow, I don’t think we want to know. Maybe we should quietly wait for Campbell to re-appear.

Comment by Marcus

its david versus goliath.

my moneys on goliath but i hope david gets a few fucking big kicks in.

make the fucks bleed rob and dont come back complaining about a decision of the past, it got you more gadgets than james fucking bond.

Comment by andy@cynic

cue anger.

Comment by God

You may be angry God but if these box-ticking, ass-covering bureaucratic lip-service exercises are to have any validity then everyone must participate.

Comment by Outsourced Assessments Inc.

It may seem introspective and pointless but in fact it’s all about the customer – well that’s what we think anyway.

Comment by Outsourced Assessments Inc.

A while back some creative wrote all planners were wankers (fair point) and they didn’t care about creative work or selling it to clients. Well that guy better repent right fucking now because as I busily tap tap tap on my mac, Rob is desperately battling against a “flock” of giant, evil ogres just so this guy and people like me can feel inspired, valued and heard.
He might have birkenstock clad, corn ridden unmanicured feet but I’ll be kissing them next time I see him.
This is mental but exciting at the same time.

Comment by Billy Whizz

I think that’s got more to do with two years of abstinence Billy

Comment by John Dodds

i like you dodds

Comment by andy@cynic

A lot of fucking elephants on this blog isn’t there.
Just my luck.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Thanks for your comments [though I love John’s about Billy best, ha!] … however I’m fine, my ‘battle’ is more about protecting others [including the client!!!] than me.

Better go … round 67 is about to start and I’m so up for this it’s a joke.

[Andy, thanks for the SMS – you’re right, and I already have, ha!]

Comment by Rob

Good luck.
We got your back… as they say
