My first worthy post for the year.

Sort of.

(since my posts so far are mostly filler)

Actually, my first full-blown rant post. You’ve been warned.






Meetings
- are the perfect excuse to get out of the office, do absolutely nothing productive and still give the appearance that one is actually working;
- are the perfect venue to shoot one’s self in the mouth;
- are abso-fucking-lutely wastes of my time.


Sukang suka na ko sa kaka-attend ng meeting, swear. Bago pa mag Christmas vacation last December, lagi na lang akong nasa meeting. I started the year with another meeting. Fuck, I started this week with a meeting in Sta. Rosa, Laguna! (anlapit di ba? and take note, bumalik pa ko ng office after the meeting) And I have meetings until Friday this week. Damn. Damn. Damn.

At alam niyo kung ano ang nakakasuka dun? Lahat ng meeting na yun is just for a single project!

I can’t understand why I have to be dragged to all these meetings when I could be doing more productive things for that project and for other things as well! I can’t understand the need to schedule multiple and follow up meetings with these various people when I could just pick up the phone or send them an email to do the follow up.

I am tired of discussing the same things over and over again, sick of all the small talks and smiling through all the flatteries and bullshitting that some people seem to have a knack for, sick and tired of being the one being singled out to work on these kind of projects.

What a very happy new year.

I know how frustrating meetings can be especially when it's offsite, you have to stay after work, you don't really NEED to be there and when people beat around the bush instead of cutting the crap and getting straight to the point so we can wrap things up and get on with our already busy lives.

But I also realize their importance.. In the company I work for, we hardly ever have meetings which causes a lot of miscommunication between departments and all the different parties involved. I'm not saying we should have them all the time but once in a while would be good just so we're all on the same page.

There are times when I wish we'd all just sit down and have a meeting and then there are times when I don't really care and I just want to go home and cry.
