Why are those always the most vocal when you call them out on their stupidity? They don't know anything, they have never been anywhere, they don't even haven the mentall strengt to form an opinion that was not shaped by someone else.
It was always burning, it's just the worst returning (Billy Joel).The return of Doc Martens to quasi-coolness is a cold, calculated ploy to keep coco in poverty.
Yesssss, platforms.It was always burning, it's just the worst returning (Billy Joel).
Docs have never been fully gone, but the expansion of the brand towards sandals, platforms, and other styles have of course opened up new target groups.
Which is why I switched to Solovair, the English-made alternative that still at least smells a bit of working class. Jules, on the other hand, has gorgeous platform Martens...
You have to set those parameters for yourself and stick to them. I'm a big fan of the Zero-Sum response when my boss comes to me with the "one more thing".
Boss: "This Thing needs to get done."
Me: "Okay, that means Other Thing gets delayed 6 weeks."
Boss: "Other Thing needs to be done too."
Me: "Okay, so This Thing is no longer the top priority and it will be done in two months or we can add staff and it will cost X dollars. Which one would meet our needs?"
Never ever break from the Zero Sum. "You want a thing, here is the cost" is always my response. It's amazing how many "Super High Priority Code Red" things suddenly become unimportant when you put completion in terms of money and time instead of just saying "sure" and working 16 hour days.
