I am stuck in an all day meeting with upper management

One of them is acting like he lost someone very close to him. Which is really weird because when his mother and father died, he didn't even take time off for the funerals.

This meeting is full of really down people, it is difficult to deal with these people today. I am trying to tip-toe through the mine field.

I have to go back in there in a couple of minutes for the rest of the day.

1. Ask them what their plans are to avoid the Re-Education Camps.

Tell them the round-up begins in December.

2. Can you mock them? Mirroring their expressions, x2 or 3?

Unless they have a legitimate reason other than the election to be emotional?

5. You could tell in the meeting who was up and who was down.

I was so tired, no one could tell how I felt.

I just kept my nose to business and left the innuendos to those who dare and listened to the snide remarks from the losers.

6. What was the moan of choice in your meeting?

Around my workplace our furthest out person was talking about how Obamacare will crush business and he knows people who are turning away business to stay smaller than some threshold. Oh, and the coming shortage of physicians.
