My new boss: acts completely annoyed when I reach out for assistance or ask a question (deep sighs and completely speaks as if I should already know granular things like who the head of the Rome office is even tho I have never been told etc) and then she ALSO gets annoyed when I don’t ask her questions on things and go to others. It feels like a no-way-to-win situation. Help

Decades ago, mainstream media would claim that we advertisers would work all kinds of calculated witchcraft into our ads; that we retouched the word ‘S.E.X’ into the dimples of a Ritz cracker, etc. Many consumers took it as gospel, while we all know it to be bullocks. We’re too busy getting ANY NORMAL message approved, let alone a stippled naughty word. All that said, have you ever managed to sneak any harmless little thing/word/innuendo into an ad?
