    If you and your siblings, whom you haven't seen for months, planned an outing and when you're about

    to go to the meeting place, your boss called you for an urgent meeting. Your presence in that meeting is important, which will you choose?

    I would choose my siblings.......Your boss should already know about your planned day out? Providing you had told HIM/HER that is?

    The answer to this question is tricky. Depending on the line of work you are in you might want to call the siblings and inform them of your situation. Siblings should understand these types of situations, especially if you hold a position in some type of emergency management or other field that would require short notice meetings. However depending upon your personal choice you could say tell the boss you are long gone and won't be back in time to catch the meeting, or just not answer the call on your cell or forward it to voice mail. I personally would not choose those options but that decision is totally yours as you have to deal with the consequences of your actions. Now if you hold a job and it is a non emergency type meeting and your boss was well aware of your plans you might want to remind them of how important this is to your personal and family life and that you are going to be unable to attend the meeting, and also remind them they were well aware of this planned event you had and kindly ask them to give you a  briefing on the meeting so that you will know what you have missed.

    Well surely the meeting can't last that long, to upset your plans even if delayed some. Surely children could understand this and everything should turn out OK. Sometimes we just have to rearrange but we don't have to change.

    I would welcome the chance to get out of the family reunion.

    It is what I would do,  It Is Not what I would recommend that You do.

    Well if the meeting was so important that it would put you out of a job if you missed it, and that job is the only thing that is providing for your family or is a major source of income, then I would say:  go to work and try to make up for it later. I mean...If your siblings cared enough to plan to see you after months of being apart then they should be aware that the reason why you haven't been able to plan something all the other months is because everybody also has a life that then need to tend to and a job is a large part of your life. If this were me and my brother, who is in the army right now, I would still understand. That being said you could probably do both things or work around both events. I would try to do that before I would cancel anything. Hope this helps smile
