It’s a statement we often say to ourselves as we sit in a meeting that we aren’t speaking in and aren’t contributing too.
As the meeting progresses, we say it more and more to ourselves, over and over again.
It’d be rude to just get up and leave and call it a day (you wouldn’t do that in person, remotely, some might notice).
The key is in evaluating next time and politely decline.
Meetings aren’t meant to be mandatory, they are a suggested list of who the organizer thinks needs to be there, and sometimes, like all of us, they get it wrong – help them out and let them know so are both using your time to the fullest.
