Friday afternoon meetings -part two

Ha! I weaseled out of the meeting and I had a damn good excuse as well.
My other passenger in our life club has an emergency, and has to be at home early. Voila! I can get out of this hour long ( and with some of the speakers scheduled, an hour can feel like a month) meeting. Woohoo!!

Friday afternoon meetings

If there is one thing that is guaranteed to make me seriously consider "going postal", is being sent an invitation at 12:00 to an hour long meeting from 3 pm to 4 pm on a Friday afternoon. Said invitation is not to be disregarded. The word should be "by command of". I will admit to the temptation of declining the invitation and hitting the road at my normal 2:45 knocking off time.
This would be tantamount to professional suicide. The project is behind on it's timelines and there are issues that need to be addressed.
But, shit, 3 o'clock on a Friday afternoon, month end? Get a life! I have no choice but to attend. Damn! Damn!
