Dear Me, On My First Day of Advertising #14: Jim Glynn
Dear 22 Year Old Jim
Congratulations on surviving your first day at Foote, Cone.
Sorry the Chief Creative Officer got so pissed at you for not bringing any ideas to the Shout gangbang.
How was he supposed to know it was your first day?
The memory of the door jam shattering when he stormed out still makes me laugh.
It does get better, but why ruin the surprise.
I do have two pieces of advice, though.
Every time you meet a girl with any ties to Indiana, run.
You’re gonna have to trust me on this.
And in 1980, a company called Apple will start selling stock.
Hock everything and buy all you can.
Slightly Older Jim
