I had a 7:00 meeting this morning. (I really hate getting up that early, especially as fall and winter set in. Driving into work in the dark is just not right.) It was one of those mandatory, every person has to attend information meetings. Zzzzzzz.
It started out with a 20 minute video of our illustrious company president expounding our new corporate vision statement. And his interpretation of every single word in that statement. I was about to go nuts listening to him. Now I'm no great speaker, and I use um and uh quite a bit when talking, but he was saying it every few words. And he kept repeating the last 2 or 3 words of EVERY sentence.
After that, we got the wonderful opportunity for our annual review of the corporate policies on equal opportunity, affirmative action, sexual harassment and workplace violence. They don't know how close I came to being violent, listening to it. (Violently ill!)
I opted to not stay for the optional second half of the meeting. Where they were going to explain all of the options for investing our 401k funds.
But hey, I guess I can't complain. We all got a new George Forman Grill and utensils for not having a recordable accident for the last 2 years. Yeeha!
