I hate doing minutes of a meeting. At one job they asked me to do the minutes for a regular weekly project meeting. So I did them my way, with the spin I wanted. I quoted people exactly but a little out of context. I quoted people making sarcastic comments about intentions and progress. Written down it came across as the opposite of the point they were trying to make, but they couldn't deny that it was *exactly* what they had said. It was a bit like someone saying, "This is a fine country we live in." Try saying that in different tones of voice and it means the exact opposite of what another tone of voice professes. WTF | :WTF:

They could not complain about the accuracy of my minutes Confused | :confused: ...but they *never* asked me to do it again, yay! Cool | :cool:

What have you done to avoid something?
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
