Susanna: All right, then. This meeting is over. We’ll meet again next week for a status update.
Juan: Hey, do you have a few minutes to talk about tomorrow’s teleconference?
Susanna: Sorry, I’ve got to run. I’m late for my department’s weekly brainstorming session. Can it wait?
Juan: Sure, how about a lunch meeting?
Susanna: I can’t. I’m holding personnel meetings over lunch all this week. It’s the only way I can fit them in.
Juan: Okay, how about at 3:00 this afternoon?
Susanna: Sorry, I have a standing meeting with the directors once a month at that time. Can you come by after the pitch meeting at 4:30?
Juan: I wish I could, but our department head has called an emergency meeting for this afternoon to do some damage control after the shareholder meeting debacle last week. Well, how about a dinner meeting?
Susanna: Only if we can have dinner at 9:30. I won’t be finished here until then.
Juan: Do you ever get a breather?
Susanna: A breather? I think I’m due for one...in 2030.
