I hate meetings in which everyone runs around the mulberry bush hashing out a non-issue for 45 minutes, and then finally decide to "just leave everything alone, really, it's fine, it really is, oh, no need, yeah, this is cool..."

Ganked it, same as all the others... ;)

I loved the picture of Piglet and modified the wording a bit. :)

Could have been more interesting if it went, say, like this:
A meeting in which everyone runs around the mulberry bush hashing out a non-issue for 45 minutes, and then finally decide to "just Tom fix whatever problem, BUT with our constant input and changes. Then blame HIM for it's failure."
*fleeing before a non-hot beating is administered::

Actually... if you get right down to the truth itself, that's essentially how most of them go. :-|

And by the way... God, I love that icon of yours!

Thanks. It's from goofing off with PhotoBooth and the MacBoook Pro. More to come.

Funny, I didn't see you sitting in the room in the meeting I was in today. You just described it perfectly.

I was going to say the same thing!

Something about working in Post-secondary education I guess?

OMG, I thought I was going to shoot myself. They went on and on about how to properly define the word "event" and ended up with no resolution. I felt sorry for the IT guys because that had nothing to do with the reason they called the meeting. All they wanted to do was to do a quick overview/update on how the migration of data from Datatel to CampusVue was going!

I was told ages ago that in education there is no resolution, only the myth of concensus. Which is a latin word meaning "everyone is bitched off and tired of this circle jerk - let's go home". Anywhere close to true?

Let's put it this way - after sitting through the meeting for an hour and a half, I couldn't take it anymore and just left. No one questioned my decision. *g*
