when I spend forever filling out a lengthy expense report only to get the email saying I did something wrong

I feel your pain, @RauliuxRaulix.

Can you explain it a little more? What about it is confusing to you? If you want to be a designer, then a much better avenue of schooling for you would be graphic design.

Do you have other options? Is it really that bad? Would this CW say you’re the reason for his headache?

Are you talking about account side or literally accounting?

Account side works side by side with creative a lot and I get along with my account folks so we have a good time. They sometimes offer ideas, yes. They have to talk to the client all the time, though, so patience is a virtue in that department.

Accounting has to do with numbers or sumthin, idk.

I’m coming back. Not that anyone should be overly excited or anything. But just thought I’d share.
