Monday Misery [For Me … Even Though I’ve Written A Blog Post]

Well this is going to be a good week for you because not only am I only writing posts for 4 days instead of 5, you’re then free from me till the 11th March.

Yes … no posts whatsoever for almost 2 weeks!

How did you get so lucky.

But it’s not just you who gets the good fortune, it’s also the people who were in danger of seeing me present at DMX in Dublin because due to circumstances out of my control, I have to go to Shanghai.

Which means while Ireland also get to enjoy a positive Monday, the big losers are the 1.3 billion people of the Middle Kingdom who will have to encounter me again.

OK, maybe not all 1.3 billion, but a lot of them.

As way of an apology to all who has to put up with me, I leave you with a message I received from a very senior client of mine.

It’s possibly the best back-handed, passive-agressive compliment I’ve ever had.

You’re welcome.

Your client knows you well. And yet they’re still your client. Crazy.

Comment by Bazza

It’s a pretty good back handed compliment though.

Comment by DH

Good because it’s accurate?

Comment by Bazza

semi accurate. and nowhere fucking insulting enough.

Comment by andy@cynic

You should be happy Rob, Bo Rhapsody won 3 Oscars more than it should have.

Comment by DH

They won 4. Does that mean you think they deserved to win 1 award or you don’t know your oscar results?

Comment by Bazza

I switched off the moment I saw Queen open the show.

Comment by DH

if ever you needed proof the oscars is a pile of fucking bollocks its that shit winning anything other than the fucking razzies.

Comment by andy@cynic

I hoped Queen opening the oscars was a nightmare. It was a nightmare, but one in real life.

Comment by DH

she lost me with happy and lovely.

the rest is true but still too fucking kind for my liking.

Comment by andy@cynic

I don’t know if the words happy and lovely have ever been used in the context of Rob except when it is to describe how someone feels when they’ve left him behind.

Comment by DH

Not sure why but ticket sales have spiked today.

Comment by DMX Dublin

Doesn’t need a planner to work out the insight behind this.
