    It is sometimes fun to stab the chairperson that scheduled the meeting in the back. Every organization has a “Dr. Fuzz” who will schedule a meeting at the flash of a dim bulb idea. For example:

    We have to decide on a new toilet tissue (Three meetings, a total of nearly seven hours wasted.)

    Should the commissary reconstitute Cream of Tomato Soup with water or cream or some of both? (41 documented meetings over five years — ending only when Fuzzy had a stroke in the middle of a meeting.) BTW: Our commissary makes all the soups from scratch.

    Should the new Reception Center chairs be upholstered with cloth, velvet or leather? And what colour? (Three meetings wasting more than eight hours.) Light oak frames with blue velveteen upholstery. Queen Anne Style.

    When the paper towel dispensers in the rest rooms started failing all at once Should we replace the old towel dispensers with blowers? (He was forced to drop this idea a little more than an hour into the first meeting due to animosity – noone likes blowers!) Should we replace the old dryers with new battery operated automatic towel dispensers or go back to the old mechanical dispensers? After four meetings that managed to consume almost eleven hours. Batterys had the vote from the end of the first meeting.

    Dr. Fuzz tried to muscle in to the chairmanship of the committee to select new laser printers. The CEO steeped in and said that the CTO would be chairman. Dr. Fuzz’s comments were stiffled and we chose new printers in just under an hour. Fuzzy had four inches of notes that were barely touched. I had distributed a 37 page information book to the participants the day before the meeting and my recommendations were accepted.

    Dr Fuzz was “retired” shortly after his stroke, to a happy sigh of relief by his coworkers.

    It’s this incessant desire to get everyone’s input that is driving the need for meetings for all decision-making these days. What ever happen to those in charge taking charge?
