Doing Business

Conference tables arranges in a big circle, projector in the center aimed at the screen on one wall. Neat trays with coffee, muffins, cookies, veggie platters in the corner.

"Jones, have you met P_(name you will never remember)?"
"No, Hi, nice to meet you. I'm Montana Jones, I'm with __."
"Hi, I'm P_. I do X for higher power."

It took less that five minutes before I was stifling a yawn. Sit up straight Jones, lean forward on the table, it makes you look interested. Take notes about something.

"Jones, have you met &_(name you will never remember)?"
"No, Hi, I'm Montana Jones, I'm with __."
"Hi, &_. I'm with C&D."

Damn, my mind wandered. Who is this speaking? What do they do again? This meeting agenda lists speakers by last name and he was introduced by first name. Who the hell is this guy? Is this the part that's important to me? Damn.

"Jones, you should meet J_(name you will never remember)."
"Hi, I'm Montana Jones, I'm with __."

This is a horrible group for playing the 'pretend everyone is naked' game. I wonder who else here is not paying attention? That guy over there just stifled a yawn. I can't be alone. Is anyone else pretending everyone is naked? There are only two cute girls in the whole room. Don't stare, don't stare. Dammit Jones, this is a business meeting not a social club. Whoa, did she just look at me? Don't stare.

"Hi, I'm S_(name you will never remember). What do you do?"
"Hi, I'm Montana Jones, I'm with __."

Not all are true. Everyone has their own way of thinking but I think they have to reconsider. I like to argue for the most accurate results.
