How to Keep the Crowd

Yesterday, I had to give a presentation. I was supposed to be 20 minutes of a two hour presentation. As it turned out, by the time I was queued up, it was already ten minutes past the end of the scheduled time (3:00pm), so the facilitator asked me to speed it up. Plus, the crowd was dragging.

My grandboss had started off his spiel by apologizing for having a cold. My boss started off his presentation by apologizing for something else. I decided to follow suit.

"I'm sorry. I haven't had breakfast or lunch, so if I pass out, I just want to alert you all that I don't have any cash."
