The Expert

I have in fact been in a meeting just like this one.

  1. This is in fact, brilliant. Signed, definitely not an expert.

  2. OMG, this is making repressed memories of crazy meetings come flooding back (and all the unspoken expletives). I thought I had erased them from my mind!
    I’d love to forward this to all the crazy clients I’ve had over the years. And then to all the wonderful clients to thank them for NOT being like this!

  3. glad I am not alone in having endured this form of meeting madness

  4. I have had that EXACT look of exasperation on my face. Today. ;)

    Frankly, it comes from people who think that they are smarter than they are and other people who are either also not as smart as they think they are backing them up. Often times people who are smart assume that others are too and that causes problems when idiots, who think they are geniuses, walk into the room and insist that they know what they are talking about. An intelligent person will unfortunately give them the benefit of the doubt then, BOOM, that person’s ‘stoopid’ gets all over everything.

    The Emperor’s New Clothes, anyone?

  5. This is beyond funny (and slightly painful for all of us who have been even remotely close to this in a creative meeting!). Thanks so much for posting.

  6. > I have in fact been in a meeting just like this one.

    That led to http://tattly.com/products/invisible-tattly? ;)

  7. This is so sad. I spend way too much time trying to figure out how to make a green line red.

    Though, in a misery-loves-company sort of way, I’m glad I’m not the only one.

    Brilliant video!

  8. Most reputed websites today solve customer queries through email,
    since customers prefer this to standing in long queues, waiting for
    telephonic assistance. Step 15 ‘ Connections concluded employing the Z Uni-Fit Kit.
    It is common for most of the people you may encounter to be clueless regarding these
    questions.
