You Know You're A Creative When...

1. You have no idea where everyone else in the agency sits
2. You don't know how to use the internet (except me and Copyranter. where the hell is everyone else?)
3. You have no idea how to book a taxi. Or a bike. In fact you are paralysed without a TV producer to plan your every movement and gesture
4. You constantly have to listen to people who have never had an idea in their lives criticise your ideas
5. The account handler asks you to change your script so the client will like it more, the planner asks you to change your script so consumers will like it more, the creative director asks you to change your script so awards juries will like it more. And the client asks you to change your script so it has a longer product sequence at the end. And in the middle. And the beginning. Actually, can we just have the product all the way through. Big. Put a spotlight on it. Some highlights. In fact, why don't we just make it dance? What do you mean yoghurts can't dance?

I've always found that Creatives are the best people in the agency for saying Thank You. Without exception.

Sounds like you've had a bad day. Seems like all planners can use the internet but curiously no suits, still they couldn't post on a blog without checking with the client first (thank god they do all the things everyone else hates).

Funny how this list makes me laugh and makes me sick to my stomach at the same time. Particularly #5.
