Let me clue you in on something about the real world.
I, and many working professionals like myself, spend MOST of our days actually making presentations and creating documents (aka meaningless work) because humans have to communicate with other people. This is how we, as professionals, sell our story and communicate benefits to those around us. People have been dressing things up, creating proposals, making presentations for a very long time.
Get used to it or go away.
A text announcement would have sufficed.
