Communication is the key

person: What times are you available today?

serna: Any time after 4:00; I’m booked the rest of the afternoon.

serna leaves his desk, and his email

person (in email to various people): Is everyone available for a meeting at 2:00?

other people: Yep. Yep. Yep.

person: Excellent, 2:00 it is!

serna comes back to his desk, and checks his email

serna (to himself): Oh brother.

Now... did Serna see that email before 2 pm, and thus have a chance to reschedule? Or, did Serna see it at 4 pm, after his meetings, and therefore appear to his colleagues to have played hooky for the afternoon?
