a story and an example

brian meares works for a marketing firm. a few weeks ago they had a young woman in for an interview, and during the course of it, she bragged about her workout regimen and the size of her 'guns'. towards the end of the interview, she decided to flex her 'guns', for the owner of the company, and said, "BAM BAM HOLLA".
she did not get hired.

i got a new settee in today. bam bam holla?

Yikes thats funny!

my favorite and my best said...

big mistake on their part. i would hire any woman who looked at her guns and said bam bam holla.
couch is good. mirror came- still in box. waiting for better weather to open it. sounds retarded i know. but last time we opened it the white styrofoam blew all over our house and we are still cleaning it up. opening on porch seems to be a good idea.

Two houses ago I made window treatments for my dining room from the black background version of the pillows you have on that settee. That fabric makes me happy. On Halloween this past year I got the chance to go back into that house. The couple that bought the house from us was still using those window treatments. I was glad.

Yes, nice mention in Elle Decor. I even showed it to my husband. Like he cared. Anyway...

Sounds like she thought she was interviewing for Jersey Shore.

I want to know what led her to even NEED to talk about her workout regime at an interview. I don't think that would ever cross my mind even if I did have a workout routine.

That's a nice piece o' furniture.

Rebecca said...

hysterical! but that line is totally appropriate for the settee!

Elizabeth said...

now I must find every opportunity to work "bam-bam holla!" into my conversations tomorrow.

I love your stuff. One day I will get to your store....if only I didn't get lost every time I tried to drive into Raleigh.

Doesn't marketing usually come down to some version of showing your guns and saying "Bam Bam Holla"?

We had an interviewee that bragged about hiding under her desk when she didn't want to speak with certain people who came into the office.

I kinda envied her....

Michelle said...
