Dear Boss

Would you.
Fucking.
PLEASE.
Stop.
Moving.
The Standup.
Time.

You've fucked around with the meeting time eight times since the end of Jan. Figure your schedule out, pick a time for our daily shit, and stick to it dude. PLEASE.

I'm a family man and you're making my mornings absolute hell to plan for.

Signed,

me.

    Fucking with the daily standup time is the single most stupid thing you can do.
    Nobody is going to start coding before it.

    I agree with the stand up time. But I'm also wondering how you being a family man affects it? 8 to 5. Outside of that it's your time. That's my thought. Just curious.

    @demortes I'm a solo family man who works from home and has a tiny human who (for the moment) gets his schooling right here with me at home, thus having recurring, but unpredictably timed meetings that are constantly in flux between 8 and 10am--a block of time I have boxed out on my calendar, mind you with the exception of standups for this very reason--for weeks at a time means *his* mornings are constantly chaotic and in flux.

    Believe me when I tell you this: It ain't fun, friend.

    I'm bringing it up with boss at our next 1:1 and appealing to whatever I can for some stability here.

    @ComputerToucher if you have an agreement with your manager like that then I think telling your boss stand ups before 10am are a no go anymore and can attend after. They'll keep stomping on you until you enforce office hours agreed upon.
