…you do not know that “meetings” are the most useless part of employment. (Well, maybe you have a job that includes meetings. When I worked part time I didn’t have meetings, but my experience isn’t universal.)
I have a lot of meetings at work. Usually, because of my field, I meet with lobbying groups who come in, talk at me for about five minutes, give me a folder full of stuff, and then leave. Sometimes I’ll have meetings with my boss and coworker which are marginally more productive, but on the whole, “meetings” eat up chunks of your day and, I think, largely exist to give us eight hours’ worth of work.
Before I started working full time, I often wondered, “Is there really eight hours’ worth of work to be done in an office?” Maybe in some offices that is the case, but almost everyone I’ve talked to admits no, there isn’t, and I am convinced meetings were invented for the sole purpose of keeping us in the office longer.
