Faculty meetings, arghh!

Over at Uncertain Principles, he's got an interesting theory to explain why scientists resent faculty meetings while those in the humanities don't. Is that really the case? I don't know.

I do know I don't like the meetings, not so much because they cut into my research time. Afterall, sometimes I can't seem to get anything done, but that doesn't make me resent the meetings any less.

No, I don't like them because they tend to be so ineffectual. There's always at least one, and usually two, who love the sound of their voice. And the most trivial of items gets the most attention. And they run so long. And the faculty who don't know me, think I'm some student interloper! (I don't look that young, but since I go to so few meetings, most people don't know me).
