"You see, I used this excuse (among many others) to get out of a regular meeting that I was supposed to attend during my first job right out of graduate school.

"This meeting — like many meetings — was a massively inefficient waste of time. I would go to great lengths to miss this weekly time-stealing abyss, including once letting air out of my car tires so that I would have to meet the tow truck when it arrived and thus avoid the dreaded meeting."
