It's Probably Time

As you may or may not know, it is part of my job to watch commercials and keep up with new campaigns. Yesterday I was watching Super Bowl ads set to launch this weekend. This one seems to be speaking directly to me in every way.



Yeah, it's time.

Are my ears working correctly? I think I just heard the sound of a soul breaking free.

Holy cr@p, that poor Koala!!!!!!

That's a funny commercial.

At my old job I used to sit in the parking lot before going into work thinking about how much it was going to suck and how much I didn't want to go in. I always talked myself into getting out of the car and going in though. Until the day they laid me off anyway. LOL ;-)

Reb said...

That is a pretty good ad! I think Kcinnova is right though, I heard it too! Go get 'em girl!

Dez said...

Yes, I do believe that commercial was speaking to you!
Good luck in finding something that you will enjoy doing!
(Yes, and that poor Koala!)

Dana said...

Ha! It's speaking to me too Knight ...

LOVE it.

Yeah, it always feels really good to scream real loud and hit something. Um, I mean.

it was totally talking to you and you know you need to find a way to make a change...

That leaves you with a little in your pocket. :-)

Night Knight! ;-)

At one time every Sunday at 3:00 I would say, "I don't want to go back to work." Probably not the best market to look for a job, but I think you'll find it. No one deserves to be stuck in a crappy job.

Ha. Well done. Normally I would be annoyed by the repetition, but it works perfectly in this ad. Cheers Knight!!

great ad! it's a shame that careerbuilder.com sucks - but the commerical is usually better than the product

I've been registered there forever as well as through the agencies that hog the site - half the jobs aren't even real - they're composites that the agencies put together

but ... best time to get a job is when you have a job so go to it girl

you're a rock star who can do just about anything

how about investigative reporting? ;)

I laughed so damn hard at this, probably because it is so true.

I use to hate Sunday evenings when I would start thinking about having to go into the office on Monday mornings......dread.

This is my *ALL TIME* favorite!

That was my FAVORITE commercial of the night!

No, I didn't know that. It's time? Only you can decide that hon. But I've never had any problem with moving on.

The longest I was ever in the same job was when I had my own business. I'm fond of saying that if I'm going to work for an idiot that it should be me.

I loved working for that idiot me, too bad I let a woman talk me into selling out and moving her.

Anyway, good luck, go get some new experiences, life out there will teach you important things if you pay attention.

Dear Knight,

I am beginning to note that the active blogging community is fairly small (I recognise a lot of the posting folks).

It took a while, and I just stumbled upon you.

The ad is cute, I like it; your posting, however, is much more powerful.

Good luck with that; breaking the ties that bind, the claws that catch.

Inadequate equipment had me howling. I suppose they must work, but for whom? Whose ego capitulates and writes back or clicks onwards?

Thanks for a bright morning. I very much enjoyed reading your entries.

Tschuess,
Chris

I played it a few times. It is a good one. I wish you lots of luck on your search. Maybe you can do a photo montage of you in all those vignettes and use that as your resignation letter. :)
