Agree - the "single" comment was wrong. Would def. set boundaries, don't give details (just say you have commitments) and if it starts to become a pattern, try to figure out how to get the work done the week before. If the mtg is that important to the SM, they will be on site / fly in early.

@A1 unless it was a joke, those words should never cross someone's lips. Family is not defined by an SO and kids. This comment is more a reflection of how large companies can treat their employees. People fought 100 years ago for acceptable wages and acceptable work time and the 40 hour work week with slogans like "8 hours for work, 8 hours for rest, and 8 hours for what we will." I feel for Op because uncle D doesn't pay us overtime. My hourly wage most of the time ends up being close to what they pay second year employees at Starbucks

Unless the SM is really pressing, just take it as an off-comment and say no. So much hatred for the SM based on one exceptionally mild, non-important comment.
