Free Meetings
When I was but a lowly apprentice, I had to do a stint in every department, one of which was the dreaded sales. I had a very unhappy time there as my 'manager' was a complete bitch and useless to boot.

I digress. The manager decided they would have a meeting every Monday morning an hour before work. When she came round an told me I asked:
"Are we getting paid for the extra hour?"
"I'm not coming then."
"You have to."
"Not if I'm not getting paid overtime."
"Everyone else will be there, so you have to be there too."
"Er, no. I can guarantee you I won't be there."

And she was then suprised when I didn't turn up. I didn't hear anything more about it, not that I gave a damn.

An hour of free work on a Monday morning? I don't think so.
