Man who works in marketing thinks his skills are transferable

A MARKETING executive wrongly believes his skills will be useful in a variety of situations, including a catastrophe.

Tom Logan thinks his abilities geared to selling tedious products and services would be completely transferable to a host of more important activities.

Logan, 38, said: “Is there a difference between devising a marketing campaign for dishwasher fluid and going into politics and becoming prime minister? I doubt it. I could do it.

“My energy and superb communication skills mean I’d probably succeed at everything from writing a bestselling novel to leading an elite special forces unit in enemy territory.

“Even in a really extreme situation like an alien invasion I’d probably use my PowerPoint skills to organise the resistance.”

Colleague Emma Bradford said: “It’s questionable whether using words like ‘edgy’ and being the loudest in meetings are actually skills or just grating personality traits.

“However if, in a post-apocalyptic scenario, you need someone who spouts stupid buzzwords and slags off other people while making himself look good, Tom’s your man.”

Are you busy all the time but achieving f*ck all?

ARE you always busy and stressed out but have f*ck all to show for it? Take our test and find out what’s wrong with your crummy life.

You’re in a rush to eat your breakfast and get to work – but why?

A) You have an important conference call with Germany due to your high-powered job with a massive salary.

B) It’s 9.30am and you got up five minutes ago due to being hungover and you’re trying to avoid yet another b*llocking.

You’re always walking around on the phone because…

A) You manage a large team who rely on your advice.

B) You never open your bills and you’re always trying to get your electricity turned back on. 

Your to-do list is massive. Why is this? 

A) You’re getting everything done to take a month off for an amazing holiday.

B) You never actually do the jobs, just keep adding to the list. Your plan to buy some new pants has been on there since 2003 and your windows are so filthy you frequently mistake day for night.

Why do you never have any free time? 

A) All your work and social commitments are carefully scheduled to get the most out of life.

B) You find yourself doing things like mindlessly eating a big bag of crisps and staring at pigeons mating, then when you look at the time the day’s just gone.

Mostly As: You’re a high-functioning, high-achieving individual and probably a bit of a git, to be honest.

Mostly Bs: You are indeed achieving f*ck all. Stop doing things like sitting on the bog for 25 minutes reading a magazine you’re not even interested in.
