Roberts Rules of Order: An instrument of torture

We reported for work at 7:30 a.m. It is now 6:20 p.m. and this meeting is still going on.


And on.


And ON.

  4. Yah. Meetings are a waste of everyone's time, and I am so grateful I don't have to attend them anymore.

    My deepest sympathies are with you, though. Consider that you have lessened your time in Purgatory.

  7. Dilbert dubbed work meetings the next best thing to actual work.
    At some point though, there is not enough caffeine or pastries on this planet to keep you engaged.
    Nodding out kitty is apropos. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz

  10. ACK! You just gave me a PTSD flashback from my advertising days. Man, am I glad I switched fields. Public health folks are never so masochistic.

  12. Unless you are a hostage negotiator, or a tugboat captain for Carnival Cruise Lines trying to bring the SS Dripping Feces into port, there is no legitimate reason for a business meeting to last that long, is there?

  13. No game of naked Twister goes on *that* long.

  14. Oh hell no. Full-day meetings are NOT good for the body, mind, spirit, or ass. I feel for you.

  15. Can you have someone call the conference room with an urgent message for you? When I was still doing the law bullshit and had to go to litigation meetings, the smart associates (me and a few others) would tell our secretaries to call the conference room to get us about a half hour after the meeting started. That was enough time to eat the "free" sandwiches and get out before the hour long meeting with no purpose began. Overtime? Excellent. Buy yourself something nice.
