    hmm, could have sworn I discovered this site after you posted a link to a post there, oh well.

    I've done #4 ("nod continuously while pretending to take notes"). #8 ("ask the presenter to go back a slide") is genius, would totally make everyone believe you're paying more attention than they are and thinking so deeply about each point that you're still contemplating while they've all moved on.

    the biggest dick move has to be #3 ("encourage everyone to 'take a step back' "), particularly when it's extended as the fucking infuriating "let's take a step back and look at the big picture"*. fuck you, "big picture" guy, we don't need you to tell us to keep the big picture in mind, we're already doing that, thank you. and your proclaimed concern about the "big picture" is just a cop out to try and elevate yourself above the worry of how to actually do what's required. you can't be fucking bothered with the small stuff of how shit actually gets done because you're above such inconsequential issues, you just smugly delegate those petty matters to the utterly replaceable peons below your level of intelligence (aka, everyone else).

    fuck you, "big picture" guy!

    Tyrion Lannister said "going forwards" to mean "in the future" in the most recent GoT episode.
