Ever Been In a Meeting With These People?

Published: Last Updated on

Sometimes I sit in meetings… Especially Volunteer Meetings… Look Around… Become concerned for humanity… Nod a few times. Leave and hope the next meeting is not for at least another week.

The next meeting always has some rehash of the last meeting. The meetings that I really don't like are the pre-meetings to meetings.

You ever had those +Amanda Blain??

I do government work. They love meetings and conference calls. I have yet to attend any that did more than just waste my time. I don't get the fascination with meetings. Nothing ever gets done in a meeting.

I can totally relate to this. Graphs just to make a pretty picture that don't tell the true story.

3/4 of Meetings I attend I am thinking about something else entirely. I find them for the most part, waste of time and the one giving the meeting trying to impress us with His/Her abilities to play with Excel and Powerpoint.

Bravo. When's lunch?

You just have to love being in a meeting where they schedule a meeting to talk about the upcoming meeting that recaps the first meeting you were in.

those sort of meetings where you count how many different TLA's are used? (Three Letter Abreviations)

Best bit if it's like this is to interrupt and ask what that TLA meant. Usual response is 'Whats a TLA?' followed by an embarrassed look when they find out…

 we call it "State Tourism". People show up for the sole reason to get out the project/task they are working on to have a liable good excuse and burn up an undetermined period of time. Translation: No one is really all that eager, just the new guy/gal.

Ha! Yep. My strong feelings about the overwhelming amount of unproductive meetings resulted in making a flowchart for the department at my last job on when to call a meeting, when not to, and how to conduct one properly: plus.google.com/117958363368979774542/posts/NBMXGNh8k9Z
(yes, I know about the typos, and it isn't as pretty as it should be… I ought to redo it one of these days)

Any meeting held with 12 people or fewer is simply uncivilized if there is no cheesecake being served…at the very least the cake makes a pie chart at least bearable!

+Amanda Blain I always take my laptop to meetings and just keep designing and coding whatever it is I'm supposed to be designing and coding that will be due by the next meeting.  

 I have learned to despise initialism.  I'll be making use of the "TLA" comment.

When I think about it, I have been in more meetings over the years then I can count. We all have been there when we want to just get up and leave. These days, it is mostly conference calls and web shares. At least I can get coffee anytime I want while on a call ~
