It happens all the time. Talking to, or e-mailing the person involved is
the natural thing to do. You have a right to be POed, if you want, but
I'd just get on with the job and not be annoyed (okay, I might be, but
there are worse things in the world). Hakuna Matata.

Subject: Do I have a right to feel POed??
We have a big release that was scheduled to go out on
Oct. 24. We've all been working toward that date.
Yesterday at 4PM (I was here), the Development Manager
calls an emergency meeting, to which I was not
invited. Testing, development and others WERE
invited. The release is now being pushed back to Dec.
20, with several maintanance releases to be scheduled
in between. He had prepared slides for this meeting,
so it was not impromtu. I had to find this
information out from a friend on the testing team...no
official word yet from him to me regarding this major
change. Of course, since I am 6 months pregnant and
will most likely NOT be here on the new delivery date,
the impact is HUGE on the documentation team.
This morning I sent a carefully worded email to him,
my manager and the program manager for this project<snip>
