When time are bad

Let’s face it, yesterday sucked. Even the bosses are nervous, and that’s never a good sign. So to help cheer everyone up, here’s a list of the stupidest things I’ve ever heard in an ad agency.

Make it pop.

Try to cut through the chatter.

Everything is a priority.

Think about over the weekend.

Flush it out.

Try to come up with some more.

Why is it blue?

We should have a meeting.

Schedule a conference call.

I think the client wants more chest-beating.

Here’s what you’re gonna do.

Can you combine the two?

It seems a little too conceptual.

Look, the client’s never gonna change their mind.

Same-old same-old.

They just need to see something.

Just sign it.

It’s a rush job.

What about the most stupid phrase in all the world??? A way to try and sound important and knowing while saying absolutely nothing.

"It is what it is."

Do I know my shit or what.

Lets make this shine people.

Sell it to me.

Trust me I know the client.

Just do this, leave the selling to me.

and my fucking favorite:

it needs more gravy.
