This is the second conference call in a row for an unnamed national project that I almost walked out of. Can't get a word in edge-wise, and when asked a direct question, am cut off before I can respond.
Complete and utter waste of time. Why are people such asses in these things? If the call is really just a platform for a couple individuals to spew their agendas, at least have the courtesy to advertise that fact ahead of time so the rest of us can skip it and get some work done instead.
This makes me rather glad I'm missing the big Hootenany face-face meeting. If there is this little regard for communication in a challenged medium like a conference call, I can only imagine how far the meeting would degrade in person. Yeesh.
