Democratic process

Two hypothetical scenarios…

  1. I hear the words “the exec has decided”, and I know that whoever decided, it wasn’t the exec, since I’m on the exec and it’s the first I’ve heard of it.
  2. or…

  3. I sit through a zillion meetings in order that “the exec” can truly decide.

At what point does honesty step aside for the sake of ones quality of life?
How far do we really believe in democratic process?

We have just got back from our team conference in Buenos Aires, which was the best one I have been to so far. There were good people, we weren’t self-catering, we did a relaxed trip out to Tigre (on the delta of the BA coastline), there was nothing truly pointless on the programme, and I’m not pregnant! I accept it wasn’t the fault of the organisers that I was pregnant last year, but it does somewhat interfere with one’s enthuseasm for wading through relentless hours of pointless information.
