It takes about 30 seconds to send an email or text notifying the meeting organizer that something came up. If that was done, no problem; however, if there was no communication then it's kind of rude.

I'm with OP. I've ghosted on internal things before because the shit hit the fan at a client. Honestly forgot about the internal thing. It happens. Don't make it a habit and it's not a big deal.

Yeah I feel terrible and apologized. It was by no means intentional.

Ha! I ghost shit like this all the time. I was triple booked for multiple time slots this week, and that was before client surprises popped up. Unless I organized the meeting or its high profile, there's a fairly decent chance I ignore it.

Have to vent. Just had a leader say “you there??” via Slack because I didn’t respond within 60 seconds. About a non-urgent issue (sending an email out). This doesn’t help the fact that I’m trying to work on not feeling like I need to respond immediately to everyone. This is a recurring thing. Sorry if it comes off as petty but I feel like I need to be at their beck and call 24/7. I’ve gotten text messages in the evening similar to this too.
