Rejected Thread Reminds Us of a Classic Sketch: Enjoy it!

In summary, the conversation discusses a rejected thread and the speaker is reminded of a famous sketch. The sketch reminds the speaker of a place they used to work and a similar situation they had with a different approach. The speaker expresses frustration with solutions offered by others who do not understand the problem and how their own solution is often dismissed. The conversation ends on a humorous note, with the idea of looking at public discourse through the lens of comedy.

In looking at a thread that was rejected because, well, it was rubbish, it reminded me of a famous sketch:


If you haven't seen it before, enjoy it.

Thanks

It reminds of a place I do work. I had a TEAMS like this yesterday. I have a different approach to Anderson.
I simply ignore the idiotic suggestions, made my points then summarised MY points back after the meeting like they were not there.

I am still raging about it.

The most frustrating part illustrated by this video?

A problem only you and one of the other techs really understand.
Solutions offered by people who do not understand the problem.
Solutions framed in such a way the terminology and sentences themselves do not make sense.
Your solution, the only viable one, is immediately pounced because of peripheral consequences.
After 20 minutes it becomes clear other solutions offered make no sense whatsoever so individuals reframe my solution as their solution and STILL get key details wrong!

Rant over, breathe and relax.

While presented here merely as humour, it is interesting to look at much of the public discourse through that lens.

Thanks
