On each of several days recently, I had multiple unrelated last minute cancelations of zoom meetings.
In one day I had three such cancelations. In each case less than ten minutes before the meeting for reasons that were known the day before. In one case was more ten minutes after the meeting was supposed to have started.
I am not asking how we can teach such people to be considerate. I won’t even do something subtle like tagging them on this post.
Instead, I am asking what people do with the windfall of time when this happens.
Do you just pick up the next chunk of work?
Do you try specifically to do something related to the meeting that didn’t happen?
Do you declare it mini-vacation?
Do complain and gossip about it?
Does the time get lost on social media?
Or do you write a blog article?
Inquiring minds want to know, starting with mine.
