I hate public speaking. I don’t dislike it, I fucking hate it. That’s one of the reasons that I don’t believe in regular employee meetings. When I do have them they very rarely last longer than 10 minutes.
The presentation that I had to give tonight was two minutes long. Someone was keeping time, and was SCORED by the nine division managers present. You were given a score of 0 (not on topic), 5, 10, or 15. Then they critiqued our presentations. All of this adds up to make it as uncomfortable as humanly possible. I did end up getting the highest score out of the 20 or so presentations, so I got a gift certificate to Smoky Bones. Free food is always nice.
I immediately needed a smoke after I gave my speech, but had to wait another 40 minutes or so. Damn.

LOL or they remove your liver?? Wahhh that cracked me up. Oops, sorry. It’s late and I’m getting giddy.
I know the feeling. It’s about time for me to pass out for my nightly five hours before I have to get up and do it all over again.
