We’ve all been there.
Whether it’s the “weekly status update” or spontaneous “mandatory brainstorming session, we continue to be inundated with invites to meet at work.
Check out the Office Meeting Quote Generator.

A lot of people who think they’re important are going to say a lot of things they think are important, but in reality, it’s all just an elaborate excuse to avoid doing any real work and to make the day go by faster. If you want to join in on the conversation, just use our office meeting quote generator to get your very own important-sounding comment to add to the next conference call. And then be sure to follow-up on that next week and get back to us.”
