I Work With A Bunch of Clowns

Meetings, meetings, meetings. If they’d just let us go do our work without having to discuss it with a room full of clowns I bet we could get our work done on time!

So the boss walks in loaded for bear
followed by the lead developer who OBVIOUSLY knows how to program the only way known to man.
Also included are the business analyst,

her protégé,

and two guys from applications and development.




Sitting across from me I’m thrilled to see the office jokester
until a young gun walks into the meeting room and states……“I hear ya got an Appalachian you need to kill.”


“No, Funny Man, but could you kill the application?” I sweetly reply.

Exactly why I've always been afraid of clowns. :-) Hey, those two application & development guys looked awfully familiar. No wait, neither of them had a slice of pizza or a donut in their hand.

OMG... I'd call the people I work with clowns too, but they are much more tragic and sad characters. Sounds like you have the same work environment as me!

I've worked with these guys before. They are assholes. They pretty much look the same as I remember them too.

Given that I work in the same office as you, I won't put names to the faces - but you definitely pegged one of them, I'm sure of it! :) And you are right - if there weren't so many damn meetings about "nothing" we'd all be able to make some progress.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I'm sorry, I just had flashbacks to almost every staff meeting I've ever had the misfortune to have to sit through. Your descriptions are quite universal.

I'm glad your back. The withdrawal symptoms were starting to get really bad.
