defying the rational, or, i really need a babysitter
Conducting a conference call for a project you are managing that is unfamiliar to begin with can be hectic. Conducting said call with three long-winded middle-aged dudes with big egos (veteran journalist, architect and video producer) can be stressful. Conducing said call (did I mention it was a kick-off call and my boss (the architect) and the other two hadn’t yet spoken and he sort of got into it with the journalist-turned-video-production-executive and told him that he tended to talk to much? Well, yes, it was.) with said people and mediating their bullshit while pacing around with a grumpy, tired baby is, in a word or two, fucking ridiculous. I wonder sometimes, well, at times like these, what in the hell I think I am doing. Clearly, whatever it is, it is not sane.
