I think Im the peep type who disagrees with the manager running the meetings. Im realizing Im the only person in our meetings who does this in our meeting of 10 people, and Im also one of the newer people (been here 2 years against everyone elses 8-10 years).

I cant tell if everybody else has learned the hard way somehow not to argue, or they dont give a poo poo, or maybe Im singularly annoying and arguing for no reason and havent realized it yet. Its downright eerie
