You say you want a revolution
See if this fits in the category of “It is hard to suffer fools lightly.” My Tonto and I were called down for being “disengaged” during a meeting. Mind you there were 11 people in this meeting. Two did not have electronic devices. You guessed it – my Tonto and I. People were getting up and leaving for phone calls (I’m sure real emergencies!!!) On one side of me was an IPAD hard at work, surely not playing a game and on the other side was an IPHONE with frantic texting going on (or maybe it was a flock of angry birds!!) Anyway, I admit I was disengaged, more like distracted by all the flurry of activity from the electronic in the room. I think my static electricity was elevating to the point of combustion. But, wait for further updates. I have one more of these marathon meetings before retirement and I intend to complain about the level of distraction in the room that prevents my attention from being mummy like to the presenter. Another thing I have noticed about these meetings is as soon as you get out an email arrives telling you there is a mistake or something needs to be reworked or cleaned up, so all the time was for naught. Another 4 hours lost in a human life to the mundane. I never realized until recently that some people do nothing but meet all the time. Can’t wait till another day in paradise.
