Department Meeting Rule #9

When a colleague has made a point with which you agree, do not put your hand up so that you may waste everyone's time by repeating the point.

spiros hates colleagues agreeing with him.

But isn't it important my colleagues recognize that all good ideas raised during department meetings are really mine and that, although others sometimes make worthwhile contributions, they require the elaboration of my keen intellect to truly come to fruition?

You know PA might be on to something here. I mean let's face it, the person who comes up with all the good ideas in department meetings, i.e., me, ought to be recognized fully for their contributions. Other faculty members provide valuable support sure and do provide me with a constructive forum to articulate my ideas and polish them into a positive plan of action. So yes PA I really do agree that it is important my collagues must recognize the keen power of my intellectual ability to get the right sort of points across to the rest of the faculty in department meetings.

I'm glad PA and 12:52 agree with my idea. Yes, that's right, I came up with it first. Just sayin'.
