be careful when working with people like this. could get really muddy if you react wrongly....
@ilechuks73 Oh I'm aware. I just say "sure" and do it, seething on the inside the entire time. For the most part I like my job, and I'm not gonna jeopardize it by throwing an (outward) fit over things like this.
Yeah I'm very much in the camp of:
Whomever called the meeting or the meeting owner needs to be in charge of the actual calendar item.
It isn't a big problem where I am now but at another place it was an issue with some less reliable folks. Then they'd get someone who would be a pushover to schedule the meeting ... and not show up so the meeting wouldn't actually start because that's how the conferencing system worked at that place :P
Now if I'm meeting guy and calling / the meeting ... then yeah that's on me to finagle everyone's schedules.
asgs109703yFUCKING BASTARD. GO CHECK MY CALENDAR AND SCHEDULE THE MEETING YOU FUCKING ASSHOLE. DON'T EVEN THINK OF SENDING REIMINDERS
>I just say "sure" and do it, seething on the inside the entire time
Good boy! 😂
Your boss sounds pretty cool.
teapot1013yI never understand people who request a meeting and then not take the initiative to either book themselves or at least suggest what time works for them for me to decide.
I have learnt to simply reply with "my calendar is up to date for availability, please feel free to book a time that works with all of us".
MANAGER: "Hey Slug, I just got off the phone with $partner about $issue and they want to have a meeting with us to discuss it. Send them an email and schedule something for Thursday morning."
WHAT THE HECK DO YOU THINK I AM, YOUR PERSONAL SECRETARY!!??? If you're the one who has a specific day and time of day that works this week, and if you were talking to them anyway, then how about YOU schedule the meeting????? And of course $partner comes back with "Does 10:30 work?" and so now I'm just playing middle-man. Who could have seen THAT coming.........
