Yes, I would like to hear your pitch, but not until you zip up, wash your hands, and we leave the bathroom.

    If this really happened, please do tell the story… that is hilarious and I apologize on behalf of all (somewhat) “sane” PR professionals. Too funny!

  2. It has happened to me more than once. Enough said.

    Tip 42-b: There’s a reason I won’t shake your hand.

  3. Staying on the “doing business in the bathroom” theme, I am still amazed by the number of people who talk on their cell phone when nature calls.

    Hmmm…rather than following a reporter into the can, perhaps I can leave a long, rambling voice message pitch from the can. Rafe, what do you think?

    Hmm. Unfair advantage to men. If I were to try this one, the story would end with “And that’s what happened, Your Honor.”

    Sincerely, I’m sorry to hear there are so many morons in the PR profession! I barely even make eye contact with others in the bathroom let alone chat them up!

    RAFE! You’re awesome. So happy I came across your blog.

    Didn’t know there were so many pr morons out there. Wow! This is an eye opener… Do you find that more morons work for corporate or agency?

    Let me give you the flip of this…I was meeting a reporter I’d never met in person before in a small hotel lobby. Walk by a guy “digging for gold” while standing in hallway just off the lobby. 10 minutes later, guess who the reporter offering his hand to me was? Ewwwww! Hmmm, maybe I should have saved this for ProReporterTips….

  11. These polaroid eyeglasses are 1 of the leader’s, hippest & most popular. A great substitution is plaid espadrilles or woven leather flats. Quickly, these turned obsolete and stayed out of public fascination. Quite a few superstars have great passions in it.

    can write or else it is complex to write.
