  1. I have used the minutes of a previous meeting to “update” the team on the latest meeting. Changed the dates, added some extra hoopla & bob’s yer auntie!

  2. dolce: As long as I put a sufficiently descriptive subject line and first paragraph, he doesn’t feel the need to read the rest of the contents.

    betenoir: Meetings exist as proof that there is no god.

    charmskool: Sadly, many of my meetings are ad-hoc and have no previous minutes to update

  3. “Wanker” … What a word. Makes me laugh. Funny thing, I just can’t bring myself to say it … Seems so, I dunno. Distasteful. Like I would need soup to wash my mouth out. Guess that’s the point.

  5. dark tart: Depends on the soup, I suppose. The other day I had some minestrone that was very distasteful and let me tell you, I had more than a few choice words for the wanker who made it.

    daisy: How about I add it to my next set of notes and put you on the copy list?

  6. stef: Good idea. It’ll match my eyes.

    nursemyra: A safe bet. Reading blogs would cut into meeting time.

    dolce & daisy: Let me know if you need me for anything. I’ll be over here.

    @ Daisy > You *could* always just buy a good nit shampoo? Mind you, then you’d have to give up swinging from the Chandeliers.

  11. This is so true…and I think it applies to all bosses?

    I was having a debate with my colleague about who is really the decision maker at any place of work. He said it’s the boss, I said it’s the guy doing the work. He said, if something needs to be changed the boss will still have to sign off on it even if the guy doing the work has decided it has to change. And I said he boss would sign anything you put in front of him – and to prove my point I now have a few blank(but signed) time sheets.

  12. louisa: My boss doesn’t have time for details, but as long as he thinks he’s in the loop, all is well.

    ~m My boss is less of a Luddite and more of a believer in the the “3 Ds”. He’s particularly fond of the second two.
