We had our monthly team meeting today. We had a colleague from another department talk to us about her area of expertise. She talked and talked and talked without drawing breath for 15 minutes without really saying anything.
So I was somewhat perplexed to see a team mate taking notes.
At the end of the meeting my team mate showed me what she had written.
She had counted the number of catch phrases and filler words spoken.
Moving forward – 5 occurrences
I reckon – 8
Um – too numerous to count
I think – 19
Increasing sales – 9
Glad to see I wasn’t the only one frustrated by the time wasted.
