I Hate Conference Calls

You hate them? I hate them more.

This sounds like it could be a quick one… trying to Multitask

Multitasking Take 2

    So, I’m on this conf. call – for hours (actually like 38 min) luckily SKYPE, IM and email has been created – not sure how we did this years ago!

    The Assoc. Prod. and the coordinator are going on-and-on…and on…it’s a 3 day show – we’re hitting every line item on every moment of the show – goes like this…”So Bob, the VP of Sales – great guy, has 3 kids and a house in the Hamptons – will take the stage, clear his throat, he will look left, then look right, he will move the microphones up slightly – then back down and will present the sales presentation with lights, powerpoint, teleprompter and a high boy with water” and so on…

    …after an hour+twenty, they’re done…deadly conf. call…

    …silence on the line, not a word…crickets…

    To break the silence I say “Hey, we mentioned the kitchen sink but the only thing missing was the gospel choir.”

    …dead silence…

    …quiet…crickets…some breathing…

    …the AP comes on and quietly says…

    “We had a gospel choir on the last show. It didn’t go well. We don’t really want to talk about it. It didn’t go well, it really didn’t go well.”

    Are you wearing a headset and a Jawbone? Two conference meetings at once? Impressive!
