Ace of all trades

The term "jack-of-all-trades" has gotten a bum rap in advertising. If you refer to someone as a jack-of-all-trades you mean they did an OK job at few tasks outside of their specialty.

An example of this would be: you're strapped for time and you have a writer layout his own line.

One might say: "Boy, Andy is a jack-of-all-trades."

On the surface not a bad thing, but most likely the headline is laid out so you get the jist of what's going on but it isn't really ready to be produced. So Andy is actually getting a back handed compliment by the sheer nature of the term.

That gets to me a little, not that Andy didn't excel at laying out the line but for the fact that he has perpetuated the myth of jack-of-all-trades.

Damn you Andy.

A true jack-of-all-trades is someone who excels at a variety of tasks outside of their specialty. It's the kind of term that should be applied to the people who can pick up a pen and both write and draw with it. Some of the best creatives have been known to be jack-of-all trades.

So the next time you feel like calling someone a jack-of-all-trades try calling them something else, like an "odd-jobs-man," until they truly are a jack-of-all-trades.

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
