Whoops, botched my diplomacy check.

Sales Rep (giving me instructions on an ad) "It's an ad for Day Spring Books, so you could put maybe a few book covers from the series on it."

Me: "I'll suggest it. Marketing's been more conceptual lately and doesn't use a lot of product photos, so they may go in a different direction."

Rep: "If you want to sell the product, you've got to show pictures of it. I've been doing this for 25 years."

Me: "You know, you don't always have to show a smiling child holding the book and eating a popsicle to get the point across. Subtle works too."

I forget, I get real damned snarky when I'm sleep-depped. Must remember this valuable fact.

What was his saving roll?

Better to remember to go for the coup de grâce.
