I still try to pay attention to the meeting. With my last boss I could bet on him having a reason, sometimes political, sometimes for me to learn something new.
I do not draw, since it looks like you're a bored kid who cannot be bothered to listen for a few minutes. Imagine spending a lot of money (>100k) on a product, sitting down with the devs, and then see two of the devs drawing pictures like they prefer not to be there.

Prepositions are extremely troublesome - maybe the last thing you learn to get right when learning another language. Closely related languages may use surprisingly different prepositions, and everyone thinks that their preposition is the only one that tells what is really going on. What's the time? Ten to eleven? Ten in eleven? Ten on eleven? Where do you go to school? in school? on school?
In lots of cases, two++ alternate prepositions are both correct, but with different meanings. In Norwegian, you can go "på" (on) some school, in the sense "the school you attend", and go "til" (to) school, in the sense be on your way to the school buildings.
I was preparing some course materials, in English, and in one PPT I was uncertain about my choice of preposition. I asked the English lady in our group. She rejected my choice, and told the right one. This was overheard by the American guy, who said No, no - you must use xxx! (I don't remember who had which proposal). This made so much noise that the Australian guy came to give his contribution, which was a third proposal. Those three people, all native English speakers had a real dogfight (although verbal only) about which preposition to use, neither of them accepting the two other proposals. The only thing they could agree on was that my proposal was totally wrong.
So they would all complain about my proposal. Or complain on it. Or complain with it. Or whatever preposition would be right in their respective Englishes.
