Bored of the norm?

Attending as the bosses representative in design engineering meetings required one to get in early, take a seat in the back row, and as the VP stood up, one slunk lower and lower into the chair until one was virtually horizontal.

Having been threatened by the boss not to speak under any circumstances, this would ensure that no career limiting responses could be given to the VP, and that the responsible person was obviously not in the room. Cue one's idiot colleague, "Ah - yes, John's man is here" pointing to the shivering mass slowly sliding under the desk. One hundred heads swivelled around, and two hundred eyeballs bored holes into my skull. They recalled that if you did not have the correct, detailed answer, complete with slides, diagrams and solutions, delivered with confidence, in meaningful jargon, it would require self to appear on the defaulters parade at 0630AM, to deliver said response before the main meeting started an hour later.

One's total embarrassment was assured,

'Mericans, don't you love 'em

Oh that he were heeded by the present lot.

I think that the Ig Noble awards have the right idea - Miss Sweetie Poo when, when speeches go on too long tells the speakers 'please stop, I'm bored' .
