Video called someone for a 1-2-1 at 1pm; no answer. Emailed her; no answer.

She's definitely sat out in the garden, not doing work, isn't she? :lol: We were only chatting on WhatsApp this morning.

Now to decide what type of bollocking to dish out :nod:.

I hate bosses who arrange meetings to take place during lunch hours.

Is that with reference to me? It was her choice to have it at 1pm.

I don't have lunch till 2PM, because I don't have dinner until half 7, so if I had lunch earlier I'd snack.

I have breakfast at about 9AM to make it work.

Yes, your behaviour is appalling, frankly. :capnscotty:

Big time, lunch for me is usually around 11am. No idea how people last so long without getting too hungry.

Should I tell her I hate her for going with 1pm? Also why can't I just eat my lunch around the time of the meeting? This is very confusing.

Lunch after 1pm is way too continental for me. You're not on holiday!

I hate being forced to go eat lunch at 1PM or on some days like today 12. I'm not really hungry until 2pm.

2PM lunch really works for me, keeps the snacking away.

Hi Winckle,

This is a critical meeting for this project that must take place at 2pm. I'll mark you as optional, if you're not able to make it please read the minutes to review any actions that might be assigned to you during the call.

Kind regards,

Me

I can take my lunch break between 12 and 2, but given that I'm lazy and don't start until 10, I prefer to leave it to the last possible minute, otherwise the remainder of the day would feel like eons.

I can eat whenever I want (which means im eating around 1:30 on a 12PM lunch) but I still have to take my break before I want to.
