Actual People

Today I was supporting this meeting at work and the presenter asked me, “Is that everyone?” I said, “let me check”. I walked outside and there were a couple of women there helping with the meeting and I said, “Is that everyone?” She responded, “You mean for the meeting.” And I said, “I mean actual people.” I never finished my sentence, I meant to say, “Actual people that are supposed to be attending the meeting.” We were just there to facilitate the meeting.

Both of them took it very well even though I treated them like since we are not part of the meeting that we aren’t “Actual People”.
