I had an interesting experience yesterday. In my advertising class we do regular weekly pin-ups which means all your progress work goes up on the wall and you talk about where you’re at. So it’s week 4, most people have picked their ‘social issue’ that they will be advertising, a couple are still tossing up between several. I’ve chosen to do homelessness. Anyhoo, we get into class, put stuff up and to my confusion/horror/indignation one of the ideas that I presented last week is on the wall. AND IT’S NOT MY PIECE OF PAPER. Ironically it’s pinned exactly next to mine which is the idea + an expansion of the same. As the guy starts presenting I confront him with an, ‘Ahem, do you realise I presented this same idea last week?!’. Apparently he hadn’t realised and ‘mustn’t have paid attention last week’. Perhaps it was subconscious? Anyway. Needless to say he’ll be leaving it well alone.
It was quite an odd feeling being ripped off right to your face.
Pay better attention in class kids.
