Today is the Day I Lose My Shit


Went through a strong internal debate on whether to park here and decided against it. Someone could be lurking and see me park there and I didn't want to risk it.

Being sales, aren't we inherently guests of the marketing department (in their eyes).Β 
They work SO HARD to get us leads and all of their work DIRECTLY translates to MORE SALES. We are their guests who are graced with the fruits of their labor. /s

Call me what you want, just sign the damn contract
YOOOOO, definitely park there. If not, move it somewhere less than ideal.

Oo I like this idea. Just move the sign to across the street and watch the shit fit that ensues.Β

It is unfortunately cemented in, but a can of spray paint doesn't hurt

You mean the ones where everyone completely disregards the sign and parks there anyways?

It is absolutely real, there are actually 2 spaces for them. Shortly after I walked by, some douche in a V6 Mustang pulled up with Starbucks (something iced) and scurried right in the building.Β

I would assume that space is always empty because who wants to actually go see marketing.

Someone did park there as I was getting my belongings together....but it doesn't look like it gets much use overall.Β

Ah, the sweet aroma of 1880 when marcom wasn't a thing yet and Marketing didn't know publicity wasn't a Marketing skill.
