Office meetings are boooring

We have a monthly staff meeting coming up at 10am. I'm not going to give any sort of flowery report since I know no one gives two shits about what I do. I'll give a brief statement of "working on impact statements for the Annual Station Report" and leave it at that. There are a lot of other things that I need Bossman to give me an answer on but it doesn't do any good to bring them up in the group meeting so I won't waste my breath.

My suitemates are equally unenthused about the meeting. Though we are making cracks about the one guy in the data group, Kevin, who reports at length on the same laundry list of unaccomplished shit every.single.meeting. For YEARS. He doesn't get that doing this makes it crystal clear that he can't ever seem to get anything DONE. We're tempted to make bingo cards of the stuff he's bound to ramble on about.

"So, there's the oyster project..."

"I GOT BINGO! HA!"

I do wonder whether Michael will say anything about his potential move to the second floor. Elaine and I both heard him loudly talking to someone - Elaine was out there and I heard him clearly from the other side of a wall. He was mentioning how he thinks he's going to be sitting out there with the budget office. So I guess he's not been informed that it isn't happening. Yeah, ain't my responsibility to tell the dude. He can go bitch to Bossman when he finds out otherwise.

Sounds like the morning meetings Aaron has to be in for work, no one seems to give two shits (or sometimes even give him a chance to talk). So annoying.

LOL, Bingo cards might spice it up a bit. XD

In fact, somehow I became the damned Belle of the Meeting. Blecch.

He didn't show up this time! We were all befuddled.

Evidently he went to the State Agriculture convention. So he's off spreading his incompetence around New Jersey. Woo.

That's probably for the best.

heh, we have one meeting a week, and every meeting we go through the engineers' lists of tickets. Every engineer makes progress through their list - except one.

We have one engineer who has tickets assigned to him, but for the last...18 months? Every meeting is "no, I haven't had any time to work on those tickets".

I think actually in January it was said that "btw, these tickets need to be done by the end of the month, since we've committed to the customer that they will have them in THIS rollout (missed the last one)" - and I think he may actually have worked on one or two.

To be fair, he is working on other things - that don't even make it on this list - he's not useless - but it's pretty bad when you have to acknowledge week in, and week out that you haven't made ANY progress on your list.

Also, new tickets that are his stuff, aren't being assigned to him any more - for the last 2 years, his tickets get assigned to yours truly instead. Which sucks.
