Protocol


Serious meeting

confidence shattered

not by miscreant ringtone
but an uncontrollable
coughing
fit.

  3. How irritating to have that happen... usually it is a phone.

  5. Beats than having a giggling fit at a job talk. Someone else's. (I don't know if that made it better or worse.) I like how you shattered out of the mock-this-is-a-serious-haiku tone with a final line that's extra(uncontrollably) long.
