YET, I HAVE NOT BEEN TO A MEETING IN MEMORY THAT DIDN'T START LATE AND OR HAD A KEY ATTENDEE THAT WAS LATE AND NO NOTICE WAS GIVEN.
When you are late for a meeting with me and keep me waiting with no notice, you are telling me my time is not as important as your's. WHEN DID THIS BECOME OK?
Another thing, how many times have you left a meeting and the chairs are strewn around the room, crap left on the whiteboards with food, drinks and garbage left on the table. These are the same people that probably post the meme below. WHEN DID THIS BECOME OK?
Try this next time. Be on time, even early. When the meeting is over, especially if you are a guest, put your chair back, wipe down the boards and throw away your own garbage. Thank everyone who setup the meeting (including those who brought the food).
You never know who is taking notice.
