Why Are We Here? Seems like a good set of people, but everyone is looking at each other, wondering what is happening. It’s nefarious; it’s just.. confusing and agenda-less.
Why Am I Here? It seems like a good set of people, but I have no clue how I’m relevant to this meeting. I will sit here a bit and nod, but mostly, I’m wondering why someone thought my presence was a good idea.
We’ve Always Done It This Way Every week. Same time. No matter what. Why? Well, you know, I don’t know why. We’ve always done it this way. Is that a problem?
This Isn’t a Meeting; It’s a Lecture Bunch of people. Check. In a conference room. Check. He’s talking now. Still talking. It’s been 30 minutes, and no one else has said a thing. Why are we meeting? Why is there only one human talking? Not a meeting, by the way.

It’s Everyone Someone was super aggressive about inviting anyone with any possible opinion about the topic, but we cannot make progress with this ginormous crew.
