The Look and Barge
One of the most time honored traditions here at our company is what I dub the look and barge. In it, the person who thinks they are the center of the universe looks through the window of your office then walks in. It doesn't matter if you're in a meeting, on a conference call, or performing open heart surgery. They're more important than whatever it is that you're dealing with and it has to be now, now, now! So A-Rod, the most self-important person here, wanted to know if he could order pens and so he looked and barged into a beast of a conference call with a hospital on a payment issue. Then while we were busy talking, he launched into his own questions, not really caring what we were doing, that he was interrupting, or that it was distracting those on the other end of the call. He needed those pens!
