- During a meeting please don't sit and have your own private conversation, it's very distracting and disrespectful.
- When they tell you to silence your cell phones, DO IT!
- If for some reason you don't silence it, please turn it off when it starts to ring, don't let it continue to ring throughout the entire meeting.
- Can you maybe try and sit still during the entire meeting instead of getting up 4-5 times?
I am half deaf in my right ear so when someone is speaking I focus so I can read their lips and try to hear. Background noise makes it almost impossible for me to hear.
I guess I should be more compassionate. Maybe the people that get up over and over have a medical problem and they need to use the bathroom or something. It's always the same people.
And I know the meetings aren't all about me. But I'm there to listen and I'm finding myself getting more and more irritated by the almost constant disruptions.
Yes, I have PMS.
I am now stepping down from my soapbox.
