When I worked as a loan processor in a real estate company, I jumped through some amazing hoops in order to get my clients their second mortgages. Clearing credit, dealing with the evil Bank of America, writing dozens of letters to explain the clients’ stupidity in managing their finances.
There were many clients I could have used a copy of this letter for.
I used to work in Marketing and Advertising and I absolutely went nuts (inside my own head) when I heard the following, vague mantra from my clients.
Wait for it.
“Can you jazz it up?”
Why, yes, yes I can read your mind and give you back your ideal version of “jazzed up.” Please don’t offer any more suggestions, as “jazz it up” covers the gamut in detail. Thanks for the feedback, jackass.
That’s what I was thinking.
Instead I would reply, “Sure, I can revamp it to see if we can get closer to what you are looking for.”
