One of our dickweed creatives comes to company Halloween party as me.

Thirty-one goddamn years in the business and you’d think I’d get more respect. Especially from the dickweeds I work with.

And then you get this…..dude comes “dressed as me” to Halloween.

It’s just mean-spirited and disrespectful, is all I have to say about it.

Making fun of both my age and the fact that I had knee-replacement surgery this summer, which was really painful by the way….Mr. Colin Gray, at [email protected].

The dude is in MY group at GSD&M, which is bad enough. Then again, that means I get to do his review, which is coming up very soon.
