Still Alive

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.
