IT pilot fish gets an email one morning from his boss: Can we reschedule our half-hour one-on-one meeting from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.?
“That meeting is supposed to be biweekly, though we haven’t had it for six weeks because emergent management events keep preempting it,” says fish. “But I replied ‘Sure’ and went into Outlook, opened up just that occurrence, changed the time to 2:30 p.m. and sent an update.
“About 15 minutes later I got a message from Outlook indicating that she had read the updated meeting notification.
“At 2:30 p.m. sharp I was at her office door. She looked at me funny and said I’d missed my 2 p.m. one-on-one meeting.
