Endless conference call
|Endless conference call|
Mr. Mination has connected all of the employees in the CRIMBCO building into one huge conference call. It's not going to end until all have their say, and it's difficult for anyone to get a word in edgewise. Hope you weren't planning on doing anything productive for the next couple of hours.
Oh, you weren't planning on doing anything productive? You're cool, then.
Mr. Mination says, "we need to deep think our synergistic opportunity matrix." You hold in a snort of derision, which wreaks havoc on your sinuses. Eek! Argh!
Mr. Mination says, "the important thing is to upside our low-hanging fruit to best-value our blue popsicles." You're not even sure what that meant, but it hurt. Oof! Eek!
Mr. Mination says, "going forward, we need to ladder up our best practices." You roll your eyes so hard you hurt yourself. Ugh! Oof!
Mr. Mination asks, "did you get the memo about retro-prioritizing your action items?" The buzzwords cut you like a buzz-saw. Ugh! Eek!
Someone on the call gets too close to someone else on the call, and an eardrum-obliterating feedback whine almost makes you pass out. Argh!
The connection cuts out and everyone waits to get re-connected.
Someone on the conference call is in line at a mall store, so no one can hear anything except beeping and background chatter.
Someone on the call apparently has their head out the window of the Desert Bus, so all you hear is wind blowing.
Someone telecommuting has a screaming toddler, so no one can hear each other talk. It's kind of an improvement.
The spell holding the call together crashes, so Mr. Mination has to manually reconnect everyone one by one. (FUMBLE!)
An elf pushing a wheelbarrow full of CRIMBCO scrip wheels by and hands you three ten-scrip notes. "That's some hazard pay and some overtime for sitting through that whole call," he says.
