I Hate Conference Calls

You hate them? I hate them more.

Hoping for a perfect game here…

on a call on which I may say nothing at all.  OK, that’s a lie.  I was on the call at the start, and said hello.  It was kind of an angry/sad hello, but a hello nonetheless.  Now the call is in full swing, and it’s clear that it all has nothing to do with me.  I wonder if it’s my own narcissism at work here — why does it always have to be about me?  Even a little bit?

Same old phone here, no mute button.  A lot of screaming from downstairs, as the kids are home.  I can’t scream at them without outing myself as a no-mute person, and an overly angry parent.  It’s a quagmire.

    Hilarious, as usual. Quagmire or no.

    Ya know, Greg, most of those conference call systems have a way you can mute yourself, even if you don’t have a mute button on your phone… for example, press *6 to mute, *9 to unmute on some calls…
    Good luck with that!
