I was in another client meeting yesterday that involved an entire treatment team.  The client lasted all of 10 minutes and then was redirected elsewhere outside the office; it was a 2 hour meeting.  Keep in mind that I work mostly with mentally ill adults; this happens more frequently than I wish.

The public appointed guardian was participating by speaker phone and the rest of us were physically there.

The client's case manager said to the team, "She wants a cat".  Immediately and very sternly blasted through the speaker phone was the above statement.

Never thought the word "no" could leave such an impact; it was scary and admittedly funny all at the same time.
