Stuff You Wish You Could Say in a Meeting – But Never Can

The following phrases actually came from “Some Useful Condescending Phrases” intended for Evil Overlords, but who hasn’t had the following thought bubbles over their heads during unending, unproductive, doughnut-free meetings:

  1. Really, thanks. We’re all refreshed and challenged by your unique point of view.
  2. Any connection between your reality and mine is purely coincidental.
  3. I will always cherish the initial misconceptions I had about you.
  4. It’s a thankless job, but I’ve got a lot of Karma to burn off.
  5. No, my powers can only be used for good.
  6. How about never? Is never good for you?
  7. I don’t work here. I’m a consultant.
  8. It might look like I’m doing nothing, but at the cellular level I’m really quite busy.
  9. Someday, we’ll look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject.

Remember, people, thought bubbles only.
