The most difficult thing was not getting the job and hearing that the reason I didn't get it was because the decision makers felt my past experiences were too colorful, creative and worldly. So in turn they felt I wouldn't put my heart and joy into being a number counting media planner. My close connection let me know that it would have been better to spend my experiential and creative passions could have been held back a little more.
So, not an answer to this question, but I'm pretty sure I was your first interviewer that day. Here's what happened. I wasn't originally scheduled to meet with you.

I personally apologize for wasting your time. A few weeks later, I left the company of my own volition. Minder
Idk, I think I read somewhere that the customer is always right. I'd make sure the team understood that the client is an a-hole but they keep the lights on. Then I'd work to make sure that we get the client something within the scope of the agreement that hopefully makes them happy. Minder
