Things I realized today

Today is day 1 of 2 at this work conference. I've already learned the following:
  • Dress Sock Companies have got to be making a killing.
  • Straight back chairs with no padding will make your back ache!
  • 1 hour for lunch doesn't cut it in rush hour lunch traffic.
  • Even though it's summer, it's still no ok to make the room a -2 degrees. 
I'm sure I'll find more things later. But for now it's back to the meetings. 5 o'clock can not get here fast enough!

It seems like during the summer you always need to bring a sweater with you because of negative temperatures.Good luck with the rest of your day!

if only they sent you someplace tropical with a pool and palm trees for a conference like San Diego or Orlando you could have learned about what the temperature of the pool is at lunch time versus traffic congestion!! ;) HATERS... screw the 'man' that's why I stay home... or at least that's what I'm telling myself for the day! :)

Dress sock companies? I had no idea, probably because I don't really wear them

Hate when hotels make it FREEZING in conference rooms. It's like you need a parka!
