I will wog after work for 4-5 miles, assuming that the lightning storm has passed by then.
Blather: I had a meeting scheduled today to present a huge deliverable to an internal team to get their feedback so that I can make revisions ahead of the client meeting on Monday. The team has been on my back to get this part of the project done and for them to see it internally ASAP. All of the team members (except for my boss) blew off the meeting.
My boss and I talked and I made some revisions, and one of the team members tried to reschedule the meeting but only for a half hour.
Finally she rescheduled it for an hour, and only one team member showed up. He is the most senior team member, so I was fine with that. We were on slide ONE of my presentation and he takes a phone call.
It was his boss. He talked to her for 5 minutes, then got up and left the room to talk to her for 5 more minutes.
He gets back, apologizes
, and I go on with the presentation. Then his kid calls and he picked up the phone again. I get it, could be an emergency. But COME ON! I was so beyond irritated. Then at the end of my presentation he was like "what about x, y, and z," and I explained that that was all phase 2 of the project and this was all just discovery, and he was like, "oh, I didn't know that," which pissed me off even more.
Bonus: walk off?
