    I said "In summary... stop, collaborate, and listen" and nobody got it.

    In a panel discussion at a conference today they all emphasized that before you rush into a project you need to wait and form partnerships and hear each other out on what you each contribute.

    I was in the front row and waited to be the last commenter/questioner and made the most obvious observation:

    "So, in summary, what you're saying is, we need to (pause) Stop, Collaborate, and Listen"

    Nothing. Not even a snicker.

    The moderator gave a long, serious, and very thoughtful and well said response affirming my observation.


    I'm the moderator tomorrow and I'm totally going to use that line again if it fits. Maybe not everyone heard me today. I'd be satisfied if I get even one reaction.

    Some of the younger guys on my shift were talking about cars.

    I mentioned that if I had a DeLorean, I wouldn't drive it a lot - just from time to time.

    Nobody got the joke. None of them had even seen Back to the Future.

    It sucks getting old.

    Pop culture jokes are so very age and genre specific that you have a 50/50 shot. I got it but I liked rap growing up and am a huge music fan.

    Nonsense. I have jokes I've been using for years and nobody has ever laughed, but it's funny to me so I stick with it. In general, the fewer people who get the joke, the better it is, but zero is not good. Some day someone shall laugh, I just know it.

    We all get it, bro. No worries.

    I suck at cliches. Last conference I attended, I wanted to foster the spirit of cooperation.

    In doing so, I tried to motivate the audience by saying, "You scratch my ballz and I scratch yours."

    Apparently that was not the right cliche.

    English is only my third language.
    This above all..
    To thine ownself be true..
    And it must follow, as the night the day..
    Thou can'st not then be false to any man..

    LOL. I'm the same way. If someone at work gets a new car I must ask "do you know whose new car is outside. It's leaking oil." That or, "I saw that someone parked in your usual spot so I keyed their car to discourage them from parking there tomorrow."

    WTH. It's funny to me
