Recently, I attended a business lunch. We gathered at a local restaurant for what I thought was going to be a huge yawn fest. I hate it when I am wrong.
I will give you little snippets of our meeting:
Fearless Leader: Woo Hoo, we are out of the office!!!
Financial Delegates: Yes, thanks for taking us out to lunch. It’s a nice change.
FL: OH! Are those balloons free for the taking???
FD: We think so.
FL: (Up and out of her seat to gather a balloon for each of us) (While affixing the balloon to each of our chairs) Hey cutie (speaking to our server), we are celebrating 5 birthdays today. Can you hook us up?
FD: (Collective groan)
Wicked H: (To the server) No, really we aren’t.
FL: You are out of order Wicked!
Server: (After our orders were taken) Is there anything else I can get for you?
FL: HATS!!! Hats would make this all perfect!
Server: Unfortunately we don’t have hats.
Believe it or not we had an agenda, we got through it. I am not sure anyone came away with any type of new knowledge at the conclusion of our meeting. I am sure that the patrons in our section as well as the rest of the restaurant were either highly entertained or extremely annoyed.
Please tell me you all have more yawn fest type meetings. Also, are there any openings where you work???
