Bored? Lonely? Simply can't be bothered to work? Why not hold a meeting?! It will make you seem busy and feel important, whilst achieving absolutely nothing whatsoever! Hooray!
Arrrrggggghhhhhh!!!!! I'm so angry right now, I knew it, I told him as much. Why do you want me there?
What will we discuss?
What's the end goal of this meeting?
It's important that you're there!
You need to meet the team!
There's a lot of money on the table!
Seriously, I am never, and I mean NEVER, going to another meeting as long as I live, unless I'm being paid to be there, or it's with the Queen or something, and even then...
I've just wasted over four hours of my life, travelling to, sitting in, and returning from a meeting that could have been summed up in either five emails, or a five minute phone call.
The only good that has come from this, is that I now have that policy in place...
Hey Roli, can we have a meeting about XYZ?
Is there anything about XYZ that cannot be summed up in five back 'n' forth emails, or a five minute phone call?
Erm, I guess not.
Great, well let's do that instead then!
Has there ever been a productive meeting in the history of meetings? Is there ANY reason to EVER have a meeting?
If so, please, pretty please with dainty little cherries on top, enlighten me.
- rant just about over :-(
