    Ours were so bad, if you weren’t tired when they began, you were nodding off within minutes anyway. I always thought of them as excuses for naps…. The secret was not falling out of the chair.

    In one of the companies I worked for, it was considered polite to get up and stand at the back of the room rather than to fall asleep in your seat.

    That’s why I always brought a tape recorder to those 8 AM lectures

    That’s the great thing about distributed work environments — the meetings are often recorded, so if you doze off, you can look up the recording and skip ahead to the bits you missed.

    That should earn him some brownie points at work.

    At one place I worked, they had these annual meetings that lasted all day where the head honchos told us all about the company, big plans (that never worked) the finances, everything but what actually applied to the job. I became very unpopular with management when I said, “I don’t see how knowing how much money they make is going to help me do a better job.” Management is generally out of touch with any reality other than their own.

    I used to work sales for an electronics retailer. Every month, the district manager would hold a meeting for the sales associates. It would be held in some dingy run-down hotel meeting room centrally located to all the stores under the DM’s control. If things were going great, he’d be quite pleased and it would be like an awards ceremony. If things were terrible, he’d let us know about it. Imagine, sitting for 3 hours through PowerPoint after PowerPoint and the DM berating you to tears in front of everyone. If your quotas from yesterday were not up to the company’s greedy standards, you could be slowly diminished out of there. I’m just glad I got out before the whole company went belly up.

    Just hope that don’t snore or it will be a rude awakening.
