"Meeting" Is a 4 Letter Word

I remember reading once, that if the end of the world could be described in one word, it would be "meetings". Today at work has been a continuing nightmare in a saga that began since Wednesday morning, yesterday. I won't go into details, but just say, after two days, a simple concern in the GUI of the project I'm on has resulted in almost a day (8 hours) worth of meetings, mass emotional draining, and the end result of one person quitting our company. I can't understand why people would let a simple problem become so heated. We aren't ending world hunger here people! We are making a simple Windows application. Sadly, all our efforts were in vain, and we ended our debacle with the same problem that was understood from the beginning.

Celeste, you will be missed.
