Bored during a meeting

Reactions :  
These past days I did around 7 hours of meetingss or conference at work. It was too long, very boring and sometimes I thought my manager was talking in a foreign language.
So I came up with these things to do when you are bored during a meeting (I already did few of them, LOL)

1. Laugh hysterically everytime your manager cracks a joke even if it's the lamest joke you've ever heard.

2. Write your grocery list but make it look like you are taking notes about the meeting

3. Hide your phone number and call your coworkers. Hang up after 2 or 3 rings. Since the cellphones were supposed to be turned off, enjoy your coworkers embarrassment and unprofessionalism

4. Set up an anonymous e-mail account and send a NSFW picture to EVERYONE including yourself. Make sure the object is catchy and very important.

5. Ask a question that you already know the answer

6. Pour your coffee on the table and make it look like an accident. Don't forget to apologize about the incident every 5 minutes.

How I've missed your wise and creative words. These are all doable and very enjoyable. I would like to try 1-3 and would have to work up the courage for 6, but that's a good one.

Congrats on all the followers, what a difference a day makes.

ha ha, some of these are pretty funny! i usually doodle while in a boring meeting, which most of them are. nowadays, i wish they would just email us the points of discussion and allow us to email back if we have questions. there is really no need to actually meet, in my opinion.

I always make a grocery list!!! I also like to make a list of things that make me happy.

That was hilarious. Most of the meetings are held exactly in that fashion.

If ones had a look at the scribble pads after the meeting is over, one will find different markings like arrows, circles, faces etc and everything other than the proceedings of the meeting.

Thanks for additional tips.

very interesting and funny. I think one should follow your tips for quick success..lol ;)

Nice guys finish last...or something like that said...

I prefer to stare at them as intently as possible and look slightly pissed-they quit looking at you after a while cause they think you're mad at em. (keeps em from askin you questions too)

I used to send "no id caller" sms to guys in same meeting with text message "your fly is open".I also sent a text to the one girl in meeting saying" someone at reception for you" and then to a colleague in same meeting who was having a thing with her I sent " your wife is talking to "Karin" down at reception.Haaaa!!That's what happens when management has stupid boring meetings!!!
