Case 141:

Ill Met By Moonlight

(not geeky)  

At the conclusion of a presentation, Jinyu was approached by several of her abbots. One said, “In your talk you mentioned the Four Types of Meeting Attendee. What are these?”

Jinyu counted off on her fingers:

“Those who come to inform,
those who come to learn,
those who come to be dutiful,
and those who come to be noticed.”

A second abbot nodded his head, saying, “Clearly we have too few of the first and second types.”

Jinyu said impatiently, “Yes, yes; I see you.”
