You probably know that feeling of watching your entire life pass you by if you sit in a cubicle every day. But what really compounds that feeling is going to a meeting that could have been a mass email. For instance, when your supervisor calls a thirty minute “touch base” about a new format or a change in personnel.
The only thing worse than wasting your own time in the cube is when someone else wastes your time in a room without a computer that you can troll the internet on like some sort of clandestine fetish porn junkie. Time wasted should be your own, after all–not another’s who simply wants to talk at you the information they could have conveyed via a simple correspondence.
