Advantages of attending conf-calls

Attending meetings have the advantage that you can somehow ramble on non-stop about your project to a non-technical human .. or to a junior in office .. or to a witless colleague .. but then there are times when even that insignificant bit of knowledge doesn’t help either.

Following stuff .. did happen 🙂

Scene 1
employee 1 .. “Hey .. they keep referring to this AAL2 bearer thing .. do you know what the hell is that .. ?? ”
employee 2 .. “you don’t know what a AAL2 bearer is .. ?? ”
employee 1 ( looking a bit defensive now ) .. “Of course I know .. I was just asking you if YOU know what it is .. ”

Scene 2
employee 1 .. “Now what in the god’s name is RTP”
employee 2 .. “really trust-worthy protocol”
employee 1 .. “yeah .. i know that ..but what does it do ??”

Scene 3
employee 1 .. “Why do they keep telling us things in acronyms .. like we are supposed to know all of them by-heart”
employee 2 .. “Oh .. didn’t you go through the trainings .. ?? ”
employee 1 .. “Yes .. I did”
employee 2 .. “Oh .. must be a different one from what I attended . they made us write full forms for all these acronyms all over our hands and chest and back , so that we remember them all our life”
employee 1 .. “don’t kid me .. I know thats not possible”
employee 2 .. “Of course its not possible .. but that makes such a better way to scare the shit out of you than the usual I-don’t-know ” ”

Scene 4
employee 1 .. “Hey .. What is this Managed Object ? ”
employee 2 .. “Uhmm . heard of UFO ?? ”
employee 1 .. “You mean .. the .. Unidentified flying objects ?? ”
employee 2 .. “yeah .. thats the one .. once they identify the flying object it becomes a managed object”

  4. hmm been there my friend…feels like the experienced people are speaking some foreign language altogether.. 😦

    for that matter, even here everyone keeps talking in acronyms … seems to be the guru-mantra of all corporates.. talk in either multi-syllable words or in acronyms and intimidate people 🙂
