I am trying valiantly to reduce the stack of bugs that I have at work. This is being complicated by the fact that we are in between version control systems, so I can't actually check in any fixes.
And then there are the meetings, which seem to take up ever increasing amounts of time. I pointed this out today to my boss.
"I suppose there are a great many meetings," he replied. "We should have fewer meetings."
"We could have a meeting to discuss how to do that," I answered.
Happily, he let me live. The fact that he was on the other end of a phone line probably helped. :)
