Very, well done. Where are you going?

Cynical Rob said...

Oh my bloody god, that is bloody brilliant news. Bloody fantastic.

[And Andy is away so feel free to insult him all you like!]

Rob Mortimer said...

Going to Cheetham Bell JWT (hence the welcome from Graham Furlong!)

Thanks folks!

Cynical Rob said...

Graham ... you have done something very smart indeed.

It's great news for Rob and for you and I look forward to seeing the fruits of your labour.

Rob Mortimer said...

My only worry now is living up to the expectations everyone has of me!!

I shall do my very best :)

Cynical Rob said...

You will piss it ... especially as I've just seen the most pathetic pile of wank written by a so called Planning Director.

You are better than him now - so you're going to shine like a bastard

[bastards shine dontcha know :) ]

Pieman said...

Many congratulations Rob. Good way to kick off the new year - sure we'll see you around soon.

Age said...

Congratulations!

Rob said...

Nice one Rob. Congrats and all that.

Rob

Rob Mortimer said...

Rob...
Fucking brilliant. Manchester... My birthplace on Factory Road... Only Manchester would name a road after a factory! Britains best looking women (even though my wife is from Liverpool) Best Football team. Used to be the best beer... Boddingtons, then the fuckers moved it somewhere else. Wankers. You will do well. I used to work with an AD named Graham Furlong in New York... He was an Irish piss artist... Can it be the same one?
Cheers/George

Rob Mortimer said...

Cheerful AND grumpy, true George Parker gold!

Thanks :)

It's a great city, looking forward to being there.

It doesn't sound like the same one, but you never know in this crazy world of ours!

Rob
If it's the same Furlong, when we worked on the AmEx account, in the interest of doing research on their restaurant stuff. We went to Smith and Willensky (very posh) and spent $800 on lunch!!! Lobster steaks Wine cognac big cigars. Fucking brilliant. When we expensed it the AE went apeshit. Fucking wanker.
Ah, the good old days. Ask him if it was him. But if he works in Manchester, he probably does fish and chips for a couple of quid.
Good luck on the job. Give us regular updates. If they are all wankers, you can post on AdScam about it... I'll keep it secret!
Cheers/George

Rob Mortimer said...

Doesn't sound like the same guy then, I don't think he stretches back to your good old days ;) !

Thanks. I'm sure they won't be though!

Sammy Saatchi said...

Well done, although you could have stayed in Sheffield and supported local agencies by working at Dig for Fire, Uber, Iris etc.

;)

Rob Mortimer said...

I did have a couple of interviews at a very well known place in Sheffield.

But I have to go where the best opportunities are!

northern said...
