Ever been a part of or observed just a really terrible Daily Scrum? Tobias Fors has, and he tells the story of it in his blog post "The Worst Daily Scrum Ever."

Here's how it went: The team gathered with the supposed Scrum Master. The leader asked the typical questions: "What have you gotten done since yesterday," "what are you doing today," "what are your impediments," and then an awkward question: "Do you have any hours to reduce?" The team got the questions out of the way, even the awkward last one, and the meeting was over.
