I had to participate in a conference call today. It was a training session relating to a report I received earlier this week that requires input from my company.

I’m still not entirely sure why I needed to be on the call:
1. It was concerning IT activity, and I am in Human Resources, not IT.
2. The IT Director was also on the call, thus negating the need for anyone else to be there.
3. I figured out how to provide the data needed two days ago.

Anyway, after the conference call I thought about what actually happens on conference calls. I mean, what people are really doing when they’re supposed to be paying attention. This is what I came up with:

Props to GraphJam for the inspiration.
