Thoughts while sitting in a meeting

  1. Are we really going to rehash this again? 
  2. Can I subtly signal my irritation at this conversation thread? 
  3. What this conversation needs is a good traffic-flow analysis. 
  4. And now comes the 20-minute tangent...
  5. Isn't my wife great? I love my wife. 
  6. If we didn't have ears, we'd look like weasels.
  7. Well, wasn't that productive!
  8. What makes people think that talking is going to change things? 
  9. Wow, that person's point just got crushed like roadkill. 
  10. Thanks, EPA, for making those satellite accumulation rules so clear!
  11. Passive-aggression is really excellent. 
  12. Oh, that's an engineering problem. Thank God!

  6. 18. I am superior to everyone in this room so I really shouldn't have to sit through this.
    19. I am inferior to everyone in this room so I really don't deserve to sit through this.

    1. An hour? Clearly, you've never been to a real meeting.
