Staff Meeting Mania

With the first days of school just around the corner, 'tis the season for professional development endless and/or pointless staff meetings on school campuses around the country.

It's in keeping with these troubled times that our friend Mr. McNamar of The Daily Grind has assembled this handy field guide of the
10 most annoying personalities that may be found on just about any given faculty, most of which will readily make themselves known during the aforementioned professional gatherings. Here's a sample:
10. The Clarifying Questioner:
You've all heard it. The principal has just finished a ten minute power point detailing the new attendance policy when this guy raises his hand to clarify a point that was made five times during the presentation. You want to slap him upside the head and tell him to pay attention--or just call him a freshman.
Personally, I find those who manfest those behaviors depicted by personality-type number 8 to be particularly annoying.
