    So the meeting ended? OR Did he regain his breathe and go on?

    It’s not just meetings. I know people like that, who can never say good bye on the phone or when you’re leaving their house after a visit.

    Offer you ‘guest’ a cup of coffee for his trip back and call it a day.

    Obviously not a salesman. They’re eager to get on to their next vict… uh, customer.

    That’s why I prefer to let someone else attend the meeting and give me the 5 minute summary afterword.

    We had “drive-By” meetings, if someone was giving a vendor or customer a speech and didn’t have a large enough audience, he would call the warehouse. If I didn’t have anything pressing, I could go drink a cup of coffee, pretend to be interested, and get paid to be there.

    This is another one of the best Dilberts from back in the day. I just love the punchline here, and dogbert’s extra commentary is pretty solid too

    So, seriously, how DO you get someone to shut up when the conversation is over?

    Somebody, Dilly, has to seize the bullstuff by the horns and declare that “this meeting is over!” Hint, hint.

    Which do you prefer, Dilly, your sanity or being polite to Blue Suit Guy?

    Unless he called the meeting, once you have the particulars THE FIRST TIME – you can sum it up, stand up, say “Thanks, that’s all I [have; need; – whatever]” or “Sounds good. I need to get to my 2 o’clock [or whatever time you have – you don’t have to say you actually have a meeting to get to]. I’ll get back to you if I need to.” And leave.
