About the Tickets...

I got a question about all the tickets yesterday. And it made me realize that I don't think I've ever shared much about my job on here. Probably because this is supposed to be a funny blog, and in and of itself, a job just doesn't land on the funny side of things in most cases.
But for those who are interested, I'll share. And I'll try to make it as fun as possible! I promise!
Okay, you know those tickets that you throw away after you buy clothes? The strip with the size and the ticket on the waistband of jeans or a hangtag with a barcode? Well, I develop that stuff for VF Jeanswear. That's right, I develop trash.
And you'd think it'd be simple, but anything where marketing is involved is never simple. I mean those people nitpick over the color of a ticket for weeks. And I'm like, people are gonna throw this stuff away. But hey, it keeps me in a job!
So anyway, that's why my desk is loaded down with rolls of tickets. Maybe one day I'll get it cleared off. Maybe....

The painstaking work that goes into marketing is amazing. Now I can say that I've read the blog of someone who makes those little tickets when I'm out shopping & run across a slew of little tickets that will soon be thrown away! :)

I think rolls of tickets signify you having a job. You shouldn't stress about cleaning them off your desk because they may give you tons more work then.

Ha! Now I'll have to notice the design before I throw them away just for you ;).
