    I had this guy question me when I left on time about why I didn't work late. I questioned him about his 5 smoking breaks he took daily.

    Meeting request for 9am today. I declined. Sorry I'm not in until 10am and reminded him why.

    (Basically, I sorted this at last contract renewal. About 2-3 days a months due to childcare, I come in at 10am or leave at 4pm. Let client know plans for the month in advance).

    Answer well you really need to be here for this meeting! Yeh right so the worlds going to stop spinning because you want me at this meeting. I'll just leave my daughter at home alone and won't bother dropping her to childminder. People like this piss me off!
    The world doesn't owe you a living psychocandy.

    Also, what's this toil thing, I want paying for the days I work.
    Don't be so sensible and suggest grown up ways of dealing with conflict....

    Client agrees with this so far. Unofficial way of shifting hours from one day to another....
