I have deprecated "giving you five minutes of your time back" because it is indeed lovely as gently caress, instead i say "i''m done stealing your time five minutes early"

imo it doesn't even need to be mentioned at all

if it's just five minutes it's lame as hell to mention it

like i will tell my students "well, there's still half an hour left but we're done for today, you can just head out if you like"

but if i did that with five minutes left in the class? what a weenie move.

I use it as a way to indicate I'm wrapping up "well, we have 5 minutes left but if there's nothing else I think we can wrap up" is the same as "well, we're at time, so if there's nothing else lets wrap up"; the implication with both is unless the thing you wanna bring up is really, really important please just be quiet

on that note peeps joining from the dogshit meeting room at work that's a hodgepodge of lovely components slapped together on the cheap

yeah ok the room system is expensive and that's stupid and i know you're super smart and we 'could do this on a spare machine we have' for much cheaper. you're gonna be spending 15 minutes every time you use the loving room to set it up then you're going to be spending the rest of the meeting not hearing anything / not being heard. just buy the dumb overpriced horseshit through gritted teeth and save everyone a lot of time

having "hybrid" meetings is a fool's errand anyway

even if you have the fancy polycom/cisco kit there will be side conversations and all sorts of other remarks going on
and sharing a screen from a laptop in the room is usually fraught

just do it with everyone joining the VC

yeah. just doing a zoom has its advantages, just being in a room together has its advantages, but mixing them has only downsides.

we still do them now and then, but almost invariably it is tacitly understood that the zoom attendants are second-class as far as conversation goes (and pretty much no one minds, because the interaction is not any more pleasant for the person on zoom).

the scrum master who doesn't cancel the morning standup even though the only person joining is the guy who's leaving the company in three days while everyone else is on break. just so they can say, 'everyone else is on break and you don't have any items assigned to you but do you have any updates?'

and when they're told no they go through each ticket anyways to ask if there's any updates on each one

scrum master who shows up to standup 10 minutes late 95% of the time causing the room to sit in silence until someone volunteers to run the meeting

Um actually do you mind if I share my screen instead? Id like to control the slides. can you hear the video? darn, let me check the settings

Don't you just hate when you wind up in a store with people who are in a socioeconomic class that is pretty obviously about two levels lower than your own?
when you schedule a meeting with two other people but you all have higher priority work and canceling at the last second gives everyone a nice solid hour without interruptions for once
