i'm an office worker! pretend the below points are bulluted, like the minutes or whatever.
just had a meeting and someone nicked my biro. he did it by accident, but he is more senior than me so i didnt say anything.
in meetings i nod a lot more than in do at any other time.
i have never had to take the minutes to a meeting. i wouldnt like to either.
i like meetings with tea and water etc. less so the catered ones - you never take as much food as you want cos you dont want to appear greedy.
i do a lot of meetings over the phone, "calls" if you will. i dont like these very much, although they are easier to fall asleep in.
i once had a meeting where one of the points to discuss was whether we needed the meeting.
