Meetings

I have very little tolerance for meetings. My attention span is that of a fruit fly’s and I can count, on one hand, the number of times a meeting has actually been productive.
I HATE it when a fifty page handout is passed around and the speaker reads it verbatim. Do you doubt my literacy or just my willingness to read it later? I suppose it is fair to say that the handout will immediately go into my “box-o-crap,” never to be seen again. But still! I don’t care what the new inner office communication procedure is and I certainly don’t want to spend two hours of my life reviewing it.
The other thing I HATE is the mouth-breathing narcissist. You know, the one guy who has a lengthy and convoluted personal story on any and all subjects. He makes it a point to attend every meeting so he can pass on his folksy wisdom. Shut him up and the meetings would end a half an hour earlier. Am I the only one who notices this?
