Ass Scratching

My dog has been at my feet while I typed. Before he laid down though, he backed up to me so I could scracth his hind quarters. He really seems to like that and he becomes all jello-ey and beaming. Which led me to think that we need something like that to happen before/during our meetings at work. As loathsome as they are, I think that attendance and participation would probably increase. If we could set up a station of sorts in the corner and provide an ass-masseuse to come in and apply her skills on the meeting-goers....Might result in a more productive, or at least positive meeting. "Sure we are short on our quarterly targets...mmmmmm could you reach a little higher and firmer please...But the team is refocusing..blablabla".

Seriously, I work with a company that has a horrid tendency to conduct a 'check-in' before each meeting. Lots of folks pipe in with the "Gosh I'm delighted to be included in this meeting and the opportunity to contribute to the goals of this endeavor". B-A-R-F. I know that most would rather be somewhere else either working on their portfolio, sippping a scotch or leering at one of the dancers at a strip club. I sure as hell know I would (not the leering part - but substitute the scotch for a mimosa by the pool). But if I had an ass scratcher to greet me at the meeting...Might indeed show up more.

Here's to Mondays.

Meme, you are right. They also try to inflict the A4 size paper and spell check requiring "humour", "colour" and "grey" on us Yanks as well. Bastages.

Corporate meetings should be conducted with chess clocks.
Speak your mind as quickly and concisely as possible, then when you are done speaking, hit the clock and start the time running on another employee.

Great Idea! For those that run over add some severe fining (like $5 per 30 seconds).
