Fu**** Meetings....or People In Meetings!

I work in a corporate setting, so I have to go to meetings....i want to meet the stupid bas*tard that somehow educated all of the complete morons on what to do in meetings............There's the food/drink person......who no matter what time a day it is, brings some form of beverage in a cup/mug the size of Boeing 747 and then rattles her ice/slurps/sucks on the straw so we all know that you have a beverage..oh my now we are all impressed........and the dude/dudett that has somekind of food again no matter what time of day, has a sack of freakin food and eats as the meeting is going on....nope I don't think you are cool either....by the way you have mustard on you $3 shirt....

Now comes the meeting part and the one or two people that went to the "I must repeat everything seminar so that people will think I'm involved"....therse are the people who after the highest ranking person in room says.." we will begin the project on Friday"...is followed by dipstick repeat person who raises their hand and says "so what you are saying is that we, the project group will start on Friday..great thank you"....Glad that got cleared up the rest of us thought the project group was starting on Friday......duh..........and the person who has nothing to add to the subject but to get heard ask a completely irrelevant question as the end just so the "boss" will get to hear him speak.......like...."uh before we go can anyone tell me why the office has been a little warmer lately?".......yea it's freakin summer......thanks for asking..........I can't take it.......I have two meetings a month.......I take all the chairs out of the room so we have to stand (greatly speeds up the meeting), no food/drink allowed and everyone knows if you ask the repeat question......I assign you to the complaint desk for a week..........can you tell I just had one of those meetings that had chairs?

 

Sorry, i feel better.......really so what your saying is that "you" feel better........lol.........great group.....

Wow you can buy shirts for only 3bucks, u couldnt get me a few cud ya?

I hear you, Cap1015. You took the word right out of my mouth. I had 3 meetings last week alone and I'm so dead tired of it I can't even think now. It sucks the living hell out of me. Good post. I feel better just by reading it.

Scubb I agree.....you know most of the time if people would do their part and work like a team....everyone not having to be the star,we wouldn't so many meetings....everyone is so worried about who gets credit......I still always ask, please give me the job no one wants to do and is the hardest.......I usually get to work alone and it seems there always a need for someone like that!!!<br />

Serenity.............now I am impressed that is the best way to end a meeting I've heard....haven't you heard office chair rodeos restrict entry from pregnant women.......thank for such a great story.

Too bad you couldn't have been at one of the meetings when I was pregnant and knocked myself over in the chair when it leaned back too far...there, I was all fat with my legs in the air....I was like a bug stuck on its back...I think I embarrassed my gay boss more than myself...kind of threw everything off, at least for that meeting...SS

Thanks for the comments!

MizzBlue/Carrie........thanks for reading my rant and commenting....I did not want to hurt someone's feelings.....but I swear there must be a book or a class where some of these people get these assanine ideas that this behaviour is career advancement material.......now I must admit......I'm so at the other end of the spectrum.........they joke and call me the "fewest words possible dude".......now I know that is hard to believe because i am so verbose on this site.....but Gawd it is work and most of the time everyone already knows the freakin answer.....I used to work for the government and this true what I am about to say......i was on the "committee committee" we determined who and what committees were needed (my vote was none!) I also was on the :meeting planning team........we met each monday to plan that weeks meetings...............that's fu*cked up any way you look at it!..........thanks again for reading.

I may use some of your ideas at my meetings. I am for in and out, but that seldom happens!

Cap - I hear you!! I HATE the meetings of our company, and you are so right about the people. The wise ***, oh and you forgot about the people who have to keep talking and talking so everything has to be repeated. And what about the small 5 minute meeting that stretches into an HOUR??? UGH ... No more meetings!!! :)
