I'm on a committee. Generally, I find it kind of a silly one, but that's neither here nor there. Today we were to hold our scheduled monthly meeting.
I fouled something up, so we weren't going to be able to do what we'd planned. I sent my apologies around, and I presumed that we'd conduct some other business.
The speed at which suggestions to cancel the meeting appeared in my mailbox stunned me.
I show up at these silly meetings, assuming that everyone else is all rah-rah.
But what's now clear is that nobody, not just me, wants to have a damned meeting!
