thus is the life of a tech geek. when a problem hits you're always the last one to leave. why don't you just turn down some of those meetings? do you really need to be there? Sometimes I just tell them I have a deadline and to report any significant action items I need to know about later--saves lots of wasted time listening to how your co-worker's vacation was, hearing the new person babble on to make themselves sound important, and that kind of time-wasting crap.atpjunkie said:that turn into hen fests. I have work that has to get done, the gals get yawwing in a meeting and it turns into a half day killer. They pack their A$$es home at clsoing,I stay til I'm done which is now due to their freakin meeting 2 hrs plus later.
we had a meeting the day of our little off site XMas party. I was getting irritated as I had deadlines and they were giving me crap for being testy. They all left to go to the event at 2:30, I showed up about 5 when they were leaving. I gave them double middle finger salutes.
