There are few things worse than a conference call. I keep getting stuck in these calls about some new computer software that the company is thinking about purchasing. As if conference calls weren't bad enough by themselves, these are extremely boring and usually most of the conversation doesn't relate to my job. We'll hit on one or two topics that pertain to me then the rest of the conversation is about something completely different. I will be so glad when the higher ups finally make a decision so I can get back to working.
