Get Over Your Damn Self

Developers and marketeers have a long and often adversarial relationship. I think some of that is a natural consequence of the differences between their roles and their rewards. But I think a large part of it is due to the personalities called to each.

Our admin put a sign printed on legal paper on the whiteboard using magnets. This morning I watched a marketeer walk down the hall and knock the sign off the whiteboard. I then watched him stop, turn around to see what he’d knocked off, and then keep walking, leaving it on the floor for someone else to pick up.

I’m glad they moved all the marketeers to another hall. Now if we could only put a locked door at the end of our hall. Or an ogre. Or maybe a stone giant. Do stone giants each marketeers?
