|Don't you just hate being brushed off by some receptionist telling you the person you wish to speak with is in a meeting? Read what is really happening through the eyes of Obama Da dog!|
It's 2012, I always say, " come on, can't you think of something more original than the old he or she is a meeting excuse?" Granted there are times when they are actually in meetings but how often is that in reality?
Here are some better comebacks for all you VI P's, politicians and business people.
Have your secretary or switchboard tell the truth with the likes of; your busy commenting to the Letters to editor section in the Garden island news, or that you are currently in an affair with an intern, or you are making friends with people you don't know on Facebook as you try and look busy.
However don't insult my intelligence and tell me they are in a meeting.
How about saying, "look bruddah, they said if you called, "get rid of him."
Funny thing, everyone I called this morning was in a meeting. Don't worry, promise, I'll call back!
