Things I don’t Miss About Work: The Marketing Department

#3 in an occasional series.

OK, I know it’s like shooting fish in a barrel, but what is it about marketing people? They clearly come from another planet from the one I live on. To illustrate the point, take the latest jewel from Microsoft’s Marketing Department: MSN.:Found. Note the weird punctuation in the title; note the "let’s be hip" feel; note the fact that none of these people are real; note that I’ve just been sick in a bucket.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
