Client just scheduled a meeting for later today and sent a to do for me in preparation. We haven’t agreed on a meeting and we’re in theory on holidays until after NYE. What would you ladies do? A. Do it and not say anything? B. Do it, but write an email back that these things should be discussed in advance? C. Ignore it and write an email later saying I wasn’t online? I actually am home, but I just hate it that they always assume we’re working around the clock and never even bother asking.
