So wrong

PR people inviting one to dinner on a Saturday night and explicitly saying you can't bring a friend. Hello, that's what weekdays are for and way to not endear me to your blah-blah-blah.

I would probably be really excellent in PR, because I have a treasure trove of anecdotes on what NOT to do (pretend that you have personal relationship with editor, edit email chains to make it appear editor has promised you something she hasn't, send a really beggy email about how much you want coverage and then not provide complete information, send your info in power point so editor has to flip through 20 slides to find basic info, front pad your cold call with a bunch of contrived cheese about how excellent the magazine is...on and on)

I guess that's why it's such an easy transfer to journalists to make. Well, and the pay hike helps...
