Meetings


#1

Currently in a teleconference that is just one person thinking out loud, to no benefit to anyone else on the call.

Please share good meeting anecdotes before I lose my mind.


#2

Got told my ‘face was really close’ on my latest Skype. Took it as a compliment


#3

got a call in 6 minutes

Have I got time to go down 4 floors to get a twix, make a tea and join the call on time?

(It really won’t matter if I’m late)


#4

Absolutely not, but you should do it anyway.


#5

Nobody has a good anecdote about a meeting because nothing good, interesting or fun has ever happened during any meeting in human history


#6

I thought maybe somebody might have heard a fart once. I’d enjoy that.

#8

one on one with my old boss, he did a tiny comedy guff. For the rest of the meeting it was so hard not to erupt into laughter, I could feel the corners of my mouth going at times and it doesn’t help to imagine telling other people about it.


#9

I’m on, 3 minutes late - and their is music playing on the call still!!


#10

got out of the lift a floor early like an idiot too


#11

but got myself a kit kat chunky as well as the twix - so I’m ahead all in all


#12

Had a phone meeting with our President this morning. He’s French. Very French. It’s a bloody nightmare.

This morning’s meeting took place while he was going through the Eurotunnel. Translation was even more impossible.


#13

someone will have an amusing tale involving people forgetting to mute their phones


#14

I did that when visiting my London office the other week. I realised as I was stepping out of the lift but didn’t want to look like an idiot in front of some strangers and was late to my meeting instead.


#15

Would have to be a pretty hefty fart to be picked up by a phone, tbf.


#16

In one now, then a conference call at 3. Wooooo


#17

Straight into another call after this one. Haven’t prepared for it. Don’t care.


#18

Yep. Boring. I’m not prepared either.


#19

If I had to place a bet on who would have that story I’d be torn between you and balonz


#20

I hate meetings.
