Evidently, being a convicted organized criminal isn’t enough to get you out of those endless strategic planning conference call meetings, at least not in Brazil.
Authorities in Sao Paulo have intercepted a series of conference calls, made with contraband cellular telephones. Some of these calls have lasted as long as ten hours, and have involved as many as nine gang members. The conversations focussed on business, and such fascinating topics as supply chain and distribution of drugs in Paraguay, Brazil and Bolivia.
So, the next time you’re in a lengthy meeting and contemplating turning to a life of crime in order to escape the crushing boredom of having to listen to Bob from accounting drone about reducing costs on deliverables, think again. We all know that crime doesn’t pay, but it turns out that it also won’t necessarily get you away from endless meetings about deliverables and supply chains. Plus, I hear the showers suck.
