Topless at business conferences

Banned from conference rooms: Lap-‘topless’ at work | TheNewsTribune.com | Tacoma, WA

It makes me feel naked just thinking about it.

If I were to go topless now, I'd be going bottomless as well. The laptop is acting as my pants. God, I love April Fools.

Meetings have never been popular in Silicon Valley. Engineers would rather write code than talk about it. Over the years, companies have come up with innovative ways to keep meetings from sucking time. Some remove chairs to force everyone to talk fast on their feet. Others get everyone to drink a glass of water beforehand.

As the saying goes - you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. Now if the companies brought in a keg of good quality suds, there would be no problem in getting an engineer to consume lots of fluid. (I speak from experience.)

No, I'm making the April Fools joke, not the original link. I always wear pants when I surf the Early Retirement Forum.

I recall a project meeting from a couple years ago where I stopped counting people answering their phones after twenty-four calls were taken! (And not one call was refused!)

Turn your phone off and pay attention!
