Imagine a young fellow curious about the talk he hears of secret, fraternal organizations and he decides to respond to a suggestion to attend a
While discussing his curiosity with a friend he is told "not to eat or drink anything while there".
At the meeting he is bored with all of the yes and no, seconded notions, roberts rules, parliamentary procedure type of business talk. He notices the
room is stiflingly warm and water pitchers and glasses are distributed to every table with the offer to "go ahead drink some water it is so hot in
here sorry". The projector screen is down and the projector light is on illuminating the screen yet nothing is shown yet.........
Despite the boredom and room temperature the young man refuses the water and sits patiently listening and watching everything going on.....
After an hour he notices some of the men start to lose focus, nod off and fall asleep still the same business talk continues.........
It is noticed by some of the men who are still awake of course that their young visitor has not touched his water and is still awake and further
offers are made to remind him that he has some water in front of him to refresh himself with.
It now appears that the business part of the meeting is almost over. About 20% of the men in attendance still asleep and the young fellow is told that
the next part of the meeting is not for first timers and he is invited to come back to next weeks meeting and he is ushered out the door......
As the door closes he is not sure but he thinks he hears the fellows talk about how "that one did not fall asleep"
As he leaves the building he ponders on what is happening at that meeting now, what about the fellows who fell asleep and he decides to never attend
another meeting like that again.
