Wait. Wait. Don’t get your hopes up and your pants down. This isn’t what you are thinking. This is just another nice pointer for you guys out there that are just starting out in this industry and don’t know how much it sucks when people give you a change in your ad or a job just by talking and proceed to fuck you ten times over for not doing it right.
Oral changes or oral jobs suck. Hard and long. I hate them and prefer not to do anything if it’s not on paper. And it applies to anything and everyone. Even your mother.
You see, people think they tell you stuff and proceed to forget it. It is like the Indian theory. If you like to try it, go right ahead. Tell one dude in your office a story and tell him to pass it around instantly to another person. Soon enough you’ll hear your story so changed maybe you won’t even recognize it.
Changes or jobs made by a conversation are the kiss of death. You can’t trust either the person who tells you what to do or even you – hearing and listening are very different things, and you might not be in either mood that day.
