Late afternoon meetings

My boss set a meeting from 4-5 today. What??? I get here at 7ish so I can leave at 4ish. Ack!! and now, the meeting is delayed because her 3-4 meeting is delayed!! Does she not know it's Drinko... er... Cinco de Mayo??

Seriously, who thinks it's ok to set meetings at the very end of the day??? Of course, it could be worse. At least it's not 4-5 on a Friday!! Actually, I've had 5-6 meetings with bigwigs on Fridays. That's just evil.

HUGE boo to this. It's, like, culturally insensitive!

And seriously, who thinks they can really keep your attention at that time of day? That is a test of willpower for sure!

I work for a company where every meeting is scheduled after 3pm. I was even asked to attend a meeting at 5pm on the week before Christmas and I refused. I work from a virtual office ie home and wake up at 6am and it's really pissing me off. I don't know what to do.

My advice: Log in to work early, and take a nap in the middle of the day. That's the beauty of telecommuting!! :)
