My pet peeve: judgmental CDs who bash men that call each other by their last names. Lighten up.


How do nicknames turn an agency culture into a boys club? Sounds like you just hate men.

I think my agency has 8 johns. Maybe dig into your insight a bit more and realize you don’t like that your agency employees so many of the same white man. Hire a more diverse talent pool and you won’t have to resort to last names as much.


Great point.

When there are literally 12 other “Derek’s” in the creative department, I’ll take your better suggestion


This has been my world so many times.

i’ll take that we are now back to complaining about people calling each other by their last name as a sign that we are reaching the end stage of the pandemic. congrats, all.


Write a script 😂


Meh - I support last name calling. Equal opportunity, of course.




I agree with you in that they don’t call women by their last names, ever. Why is that?

Actually we do quite often. It’s a term of endearment/kinship/familiarity whether male or female.
