What a Pointless Meeting

Why did I go to that stupid meeting last night? I didn't get home until almost 9pm. It was so not worth it.

It's been a few years since I was last involved in a campaign on a ground-level basis so I forgot a few of the cardinal rules. Here's a big one: any meeting involving more than a dozen people is bullshit. Nothing of substance will be said or done. The more people who are there, the more bullshit it will be.

If for some reason you must attend a meeting of more than 20 people, for God's sake keep your mouth shut unless you are running the meeting or have been asked specifically by the chair to explain something. Otherwise, the very minute that you open your mouth, you automatically become 10% stupider.

This was one of those things where it was more telling who was not there than who was. Other 'serious people' skipped it, as I should have.
