Saw this yesterday. Masterful way to re-brand a sale, IMO. “Lowering prices” sounds more like you’re supporting your customer than being forced to put everything on sale in a desperate attempt to make money.

COVID WFH has put me several time zones away from my client (I’m further west and their culture is to start the day early anyway). It’s a new project so I don’t have relationships built up. How much pushback on morning meetings is reasonable? I know the project can’t operate totally around me but these start times aren’t sustainable...

For anyone who anyone who tested positive for COVID, have you noticed you hair falling out more than normal? I tested positive back in March and I swear my hair is coming out in clumps when I brush it.

I’m only 2-3 years into my career and I feel like f*cking toilet paper — just spent a week of my life busting ass/working OT on a reduced salary (thanks COVID, love ya 😘) “designing” PPT presentations for clients I’ve never met. I know that’s normal, but it would be nice to know the ppl who constantly tell you to “jazz it up”... I’m just really, really questioning what I’m doing in advertising. I feel like I have absolutely no point right now and it doesn’t seem like that’s going to change.

I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist, but am I the only person who thinks the mass publication of the Omicron variant by the media was due to traditionally low viewership during the holidays? It seems like the Media wants to dictate COVID’s trajectory & demise to align with their business strategy. As overall viewership falls in a post-Trump era and waning COVID numbers, big media has to be a little nervous about audience retention.

When are we going to acknowledge that this is no longer a pandemic of the unvaccinated? Vaccinated/boosted people are commonly getting and spreading covid and transmitting variants. You should get vaxxed. It will protect you from severe illness and death. But it’s not preventing transmission, spread, or variants. So let’s stop treating unvaccinated people like pariahs.
