Death by Powerpoint
In recent years I've managed to avoid daylong, Powerpointy meetings. My boss thinks that I don't toot my own horn loud enough (um yeah - on purpose), so invited me to the CEO's meeting to present my in-progress projects. Thankfully, I got there a few minutes late and all the seats at the table were taken. Whew. I got to sit in the corner and nobody saw my pained expression when multiple people ignored the agenda and went waay over schedule. That's my boss to the right of the shot with his face in his hands. I'm not the only one who's pained.
It's not all bad. With the Powerpoint agony come tickets to a nice part of the Saratoga Racetrack for the afternoon. Looks like the recession's lightened up a bit in these parts!
