You might just find yourself sitting through the worst meeting ever in the history of meetings.
We all know the feeling. No matter where you work or what you do, there is a point in which you are going to have to suffer through a meeting. It might just be a small office meeting. It could even be a huge conference meeting. Either way, you know if you work anywhere at all, you are going to have to deal with meetings occasionally. However, there are times when things take a turn for the worst. In case you are wondering, yes, I am happy to list the 20 signs you are sitting through the worst meeting ever.
The 20 Signs You Are Sitting Through the Worst Meeting Ever:
- Security guards stand outside the boardroom doors and make you go back in if you try to leave.
- Not only are a few people asleep, one person might actually be in a coma.
- You've been sitting in the meeting for 3 hours and not one single item on the agenda has been covered yet.
- The boss starts the meeting with a Powerpoint presentation about her new knitting project. Yes, there are photos included.
- Spitballs begin to fly every time one of the managers turns around to write on the whiteboard.
- The email invitation said there would be free lunch. It is 2 o'clock and the only food to eat is Cheetos.
- The managers start the meeting with the opening, "We've been working on making this meeting fun. We would like to begin with a funky rap about layoffs. Hit it!"
- There are pie charts.... lots and lots of pie charts. No one knows how to read them. Instead, everyone just decides they should order pie for lunch.
- The meeting started at 8 AM and you've been there for hours. Not only is it getting dark outside, the cleaning crew has come in. They begin to vacuum around everyone in the boardroom.
- The boss declares he's created a great new game called: Wheel of Blame. The loser gets fired.
- The first item on the agenda just simply states: Saturdays and Sundays - a missed opportunity to squeeze in more work hours.

- During the meeting, a fight breaks out over who ate the last donut. Eventually, a huge riot ensues.
- The manager says he must layoff at least 3 people by the end of the meeting. He asks everyone to compile a list of reasons why he is the greatest supervisor ever. He then makes each person read the lists out loud.
- Several people bring their children with them to the meeting. Everything was going fine until everyone at the meeting realized the kids had better ideas than anyone that actually worked at the company.

- When all else fails, a dance off begins on the boardroom table.
