Part of the Job
As part of my job I listen to and give many presentations throughout my day. It is not unusual for me to be on conference calls sometimes 12 hours a day. I really don't mind giving presentations as much as I do listening to them. See I find it hard to stay awake through some of them because let's face it the topics aren't too interesting and when the person speaks in a monotone voice it seems like they drone on for hours and hours endlessly. The least they could do is add interesting pictures or provide breaks in the monotony. So yes I hate listening to presentations to the point that I feel terrorized and victimized sometimes.
