People are Crazy

Usually these posts involve a conservation or overhearing a conversation, but this one was more of an observation of a behavior.  Either way, it was too good not to share.

Sitting in Bigbys with a networking group this morning, 7:30am, discussing the future of our organization and how we can get our committees further involved.  I am on the board, our director and board president were in attendance.  We were sipping coffee.   Very serious stuff. 

During our session, I was hearing this tick, or chip, or clip rather.  High pitched and steadied rhythm....chip, chip, chip....pause.  Then chip, chip, chip.   I look around and it's mostly just us, members of a young organization trying to improve our members experience and how we, as an organization, and as professionals, can grow and where we want to take....chip, chip, chip....

I look over at my friend Desmond and ask him, are you hearing what I am hearing?  He nods.  But he nods with his eyes closed.  The eye closed nod means, "OH HELL NO!" in non-verbal.

Just a reminder not to take yourself too seriously today.  One table over from you is someone clipping their nails into their coffee.  Might have been their toenails.

You're not serious. For real?

That is just disgusting. . . though I am laughing.
