Point of Personal Privilege
That is all.
Even if everyone involved is an organized morning person, that's still an early start with expectations to arrive, discuss and execute.
It's a call with our Asia and Europe offices, so I understand the time but boy does 7am suck.
I can see it now:
2) reaction to announcement without time to reflect on it.
That'd be my go-to answer for why. It's certainly the most logical.
(for reference, school hours are 8:45 to 3:00.)
If DD could explain why a half-hour 8 AM meeting is considered an incredible inconvenience, yet a half-hour 3:15 meeting that starts at 4 because people were 'busy with students' isn't, I'd understand more about the world.
These no longer happen. The last time one was scheduled happened when the Chairman was to address us plebeians. We had been at work since 8:30 am, and he saunters in at 2:30 pm with a laptop and a latte, a coworker whisks him away to some kind of inauguration and cocktail even about 2 miles away.
He was not back at 4:30 pm , but at 5:10 pm he drives into the parking lot and I saw him staring blankly at the employees who were driving out of the parking lot.
The next morning, at 8:30 am, he exacted revenge-- they closed the offices and caused us to watch the videotape of the chairman addressing the United Nations, but he was not there, as he never woke up until mid-day.
