Quirky Notebook – tell us how you really feel about meetings

I haven’t worked in an office outside my house for a couple of years but I do vividly remember the level of annoyance of sitting in a meeting that could have been a short email. This notebook captures the feelings of that moment perfectly, “I survived another meeting that should have been an email.”

Why do office environments love meetings so much? Unless there are donuts or cake, there’s a 99% chance that leaving your cubicle to go sit (or worse stand) somewhere else is not only unnecessary, but a huge waste of time for everyone. Sure you can make the argument that it fosters real team building in an increasingly disconnected world but honestly, we’re already sitting in gray cubicles. Our spirits are already broken.

You can use this notebook to take notes at the meeting that you shouldn’t have had to attend. Or doodle. Whatever floats your boat. I mean, someone will probably send the minutes from the meeting IN AN EMAIL. Get this cheeky notebook for AU$20.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
