Dan Hoyt has disconnected


 So I’m in this business meeting, and we’re nearing the end, and all of a sudden, right there on the big projection screen, in the middle of the Powerpoint slides, comes a message from the intraoffice Messenger system:

“Dan Hoyt has disconnected.”

I looked at it in shock, several of my coworkers snickered and the boss got sidetracked.  Someone offered the interpretation that the message referred to my interest in the proceedings.  I should have been offended, but it was funny so I just laughed.

The really funny thing was that I really had just disconnected, interest-wise.  Hee hee.
