Mind Boggling

Was in one of my many meetings today, with my knees cramping, and my mind wandering off to crazy images like mass orgies......when the lead presenter sits down, and as naturally as ever takes out her nail file and begins to file her nails.

Complete with using the nail file to point at her power point presentation.

Seriously?

WTF? That's great! I wonder if I could get away with that.

huh? What's next? A pedicure when the lights are dimmed and the projector going?

Mad Bull said...

Wow... I have never heard of anything like that before. She must really be at ease when presenting...

it was pretty amazing, esp since she was the lead, and a consultant, you would think there would be smidge more professionalism there

I hate the sound of someone filling their nails. I would really have to say something. Seriously, I would say I did not realize this meeting was a time for personal grooming. I would probably say while laughing, but if I caught the person's eyes I would raise my eyebrows. That is nasty.

P.S. Coincidentally, an executive caught me yesterday painting my toenails under my desk AFTER HOURS (I was going out on a date) and I was sooooo embarassed.

Yet this chick has the temerity to file her nails in a meeting. Hmmpfh!! Some people.

Wasn't the Powerpoint presentation large enough for people to see? Or isn't she tech savvy enough to know that Powerpoint comes with a built-in pen?

My VP walked into my office once (and this was after work) and there I was on the Victoria Secrets website - sexy girl on screen modeling her impy skimpy.

Oh yes, felt quite uncomfortable.
