Meetings Are the Worst—and This Hilarious Video Nails Exactly Why That Is

You’re sitting at your desk when you get a notification in the top right corner of your computer:

Proposal meeting reminder in 10 minutes.

Cue the eye rolls. Regardless if the meeting was planned a month in advance or you just scheduled it that morning, we know you’re dreading it.

Even when you love your co-workers and your company, meetings always end up feeling pointless and slightly awkward. And if your manager’s a little off (and we’ve all experienced that), he or she asks irrelevant questions, drops jokes about the office couple, and makes everyone cringe a bit throughout.

If this all sounds familiar, you’re going to love this video on what meetings really feel like. Not only will you laugh (at least, in your head), you’ll feel pretty good knowing that other teams go through the same thing.
