These types of offers annoy the fuck out of me.

Cheesy emails offering free trials but only if you share your credit card details. It is free, you say so, so why do I have to share anything???

Is all marketing these days based on American cheese? WTF do they teach in UK marketing degrees, types of cheese, how thick to ply it and how to really patronize potential customers with platitudes and buzzwords? Every marketing person is the same these days, churning them out with all the originality of a Top Shop maniken. Everyone on LinkedIn thinking they're a Warren Buffet, telling us how brilliant they are but nonetheless still sniffing for business on a crap platform. We are Brits not yanks, we're cynical as fuck in this country so change your tune.

I had a young mealey mouthed cunt of a supplier on the phone the other day (I acceot he was keen and doing the job  hes paid to do) and I politely asked a question about other options available in the future. He then throws a marketing text book at me. What's your budget, who is the decision maker,  can we meet your requirements in other areas, can we have a face to face, when he said value proposition I nearly emptied my guts. I hung up on the cunt when he said "strategic framework" after I'd been blatently encouraging him to use normal everyday language. One day I might take his call and when I do I'll educate him on the importance of relationships and sincerity in business, in particular around how cliches and bullshit doesnt work on some people.
