Kenny G anyone?

May 10, 2010

There is nothing a marketing person hates more than a budget meeting.  A root canal while listening to Kenny G on repeat would be less painful.

I think all accountants are Soprano wannabes.  Because they all like to use the word, “KILLED.”  They don’t use words like, “tabled,” “next quarter,” or “if funds become available.”  No it is “KILLED” with froth coming out of their mouths.

Budget meetings are a lot of work.  You have to come prepared to fight for your cause (in my case, advertising funds).  I decided to use some subliminal techniques this go around.

When I worked in the corporate world, we used to wear 3″ stilettos to budget meetings and made sure to sit right next to the senior accountant.  It is a lot harder to cut advertising funding when a 3″ heel is precariously placed above your foot!

But alas, Buzzkill wasn’t falling for the stiletto routine.  As a matter of fact, since we destroyed her 14th century table with a Bic pen last week, all sharp objects are left at the door.  It is like going through airport screening just to get to her kitchen table.

So the only thing I could hold precariously above her left foot was my P90X leg.  It wasn’t scaring her the way Tony Horton promised and so my advertising budget remains KILLED.
