Why corporations and people sucks ass...

So I was made to exercise my utmost restraint today when I was witness to the ineptitude of life in corporate America. Now these same circumstances could exist in every employment environment and by god if they do all hope for this world that I might of had has been flushed like a turd. And now for my story...

We were called into a quarterly meeting to discuss some relatively useless shit today. In truth I would say 4/5 of this meeting was pointless chest beating by the heads of the respective departments.

For my portion of this meeting, as it was spread across several locations therefore making it a "virtual" meeting, took place in a small conference room. In this room there was a long table with a projector displaying slides of the meetings various topics. Although there were maybe 12 people in the room I was sat near the far end of the table away from the projection screen.

The projector was placed too close to the screen making the slides difficult to read for those of us on the opposite side of the room. Being proactive I asked the person who set up the projector to move, actually I said scoot, the projector back a few inches to increase the size on the screen.

His reply.... Uhhhhh. Which translates to no.

We then suffered through some more slides and when some guy, who I have never seen before in my life, was explaining a slide that must of included his entire CV as well as the first few chapters of War and Peace I knew i had enough. I then approached my boss and asked him to move it. He then said something to his boss. She the fooled with the video cable and then consulted with her boss who was the host of the meeting.

After this seemingly simple request filtered its way up the chain of command the eventual outcome from my bosses bosses boss was for those of us in the back of the room to "move up." I neglected to mention that the meeting was temporarily stopped while the potential move of a overhead projector was discussed.

I hate people...

Update from RDukes: Um, please phrase posts in terms of "awesome/nawesome" and not the "suckiness" paradigm.

And yes, I did just add to the Aw-Some Blog lexicon. Since I love corporations and efficiency, I've shortened "not awesome" to "nawesome".
