Calling a meeting should be grounds for immediate dismissal, if not termination with extreme prejudice. It’s a form of harassment. Meetings are black holes--scientists have proven this--in which man-hours (and gal-hours too) are forever lost in a split second. Once at my last place of employ I walked into a meeting on Monday morning and crawled out on Thursday afternoon with no memory of the intervening days and missing my trousers. Have I made my position on this topic clear?
