It does not make sense to hire smart people and then tell them what to do.  We hire smart people to tell us what to do.”   —   Steve Jobs

(I guess that works for “knowledge workers”.  Not so much for fish out of water workers, like me.  I graduated from college with a degree in Liberal Arts.  When I entered the world of Institutional Banking, I realized I could get by with my common sense, but I definitely required on the job training.  So, yeah.  I needed to be told what to do.  To encourage creativity, it makes more sense, to me, to say:  and then tell them what NOT to do.  But, he’s the genius, and I’m just a mouthy blogger.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  HIPSTER

(It makes perfect sense, but I wasn’t seeing it for a while!  All of the clue words are old friends, yet all of the jumbles came up as new.  The first three I saw right away, but “cnaitt” gave me some pause.  The answer letter layout was the best jumble.  It definitely gave me more than a pause!  My first instinct was something ending in IST, but I couldn’t do anything with the HREP.  If anything, it hid the word HIP . . . from me, very well!

The cartoon is great.  The dancers in the background are definitely moving their hips.  And, the trendy one has multiple attributes of a hipster.  But, I just wasn’t putting two and two together for a while.  She does have the whole vibe going on though.  Doesn’t she?  The completely inappropriate knit hat . . . in the tropics!  The big frame glasses, that may or may not be prescription.  Holding her grandé,  single origin, mocha, overpriced coffee beverage.  The funky fringed skirt, with a pocket for her cell phone.  And, something that looks like army boots!  Yeah.  She definitely screams hipster!  But, it took me some time to see it.  Maybe I was just tired?  Hmm.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
