Full steam with a ½ pike reverse press

My most dreaded household chore is ironing, and having put it off the last time I did laundry, I now find myself with a big steaming (literally in this case) pile of it to do. Perhaps it’s not extreme ironing (silly Brits!), but it’s certainly speed ironing as I have a client meeting in a little under 2 hours.

Although it’s only a glorified status meeting, it’s with my least favorite account and client. The best way to describe this particular hotshot MBA would be “A week old head of lettuce with a split personality and nasty speed habit”…he’s dense, with absolutely no memory or attention span. Oh, and he thinks he can do my job by offering such helpful suggestions as:
“Why don’t we make the logo HUGE, tha’d be cool.”
“If it was cornea-scorching yellow, then people would definitely see it.”

I’m actually surprised he hasn’t fired me yet, as I’ve laid into him several times:
“No, I can’t just ‘throw’ some popcorn up there if you want crud, go to Kinko’s, if you want DESIGN or ART direction then work with me here, you fool."

Why do I care? (other than it’s my career, and I’m passionate about it?) Well, there’s a hideous display I did a few years back for a certain un-named store, that gets pulled out every Christmas and I’m forced to look at the results of just “throwing stuff together.” Only saw 2 of them last year, so perhaps they’re finally dying off. My personal apologies to the American public on that one, and a vow to not do half-assed tacky schlock again!
