I have not mastered disdain, and I hate myself for it.

One of my greatest regrets is that I have not mastered a look of disdain powerful enough to break through the hubris and blind momentum of so many of the people assigned to lead meetings, conferences or training seminars.

I try like hell to let them know how pedantic, ineffective, offensive, condescending or downright stupid they are being, but try as I might, they continue on, unaffected by my attempts to exude disdain in their general direction. 

I’ll keep working on it, but I’m starting to give up hope.
