Some times you just have to throw up you arms.

Yesterday I had a less than fruitful meeting. The work I was presenting was summarily sullied, schmised and otherwise murdered.

Naturally, I started fighting for the work. Using those so often overlooked techniques, logic and common sense.

It was my account guy who cut me off. He did it with this gem: "Let's leave that snowball at the top of the hill for now."

What more can I say?

My man, it is time for you to leave where you are. You're becoming the ad world Sisyphus. There are agencies put here that develop and sell good work. That snowball analogy is assinine.

Your hed could have been, "Sometimes you just have to throw up"...

These things are a part of life. They amuse the philologist in me.
