if OP has to stay during lunch hour to work alone and answer phones while her coworkers are out, that is a punishment.  She should be able to take her lunch at whatever time she usually does.


And even if not, it seems pretty petty to me that her boss would ‘reward’ all of these coworkers (it doesn’t seem like a very large group, but maybe I don’t know) and leave one person out.  I work at a small company and maybe it is because we are all very respectful and profesional, but they would never leave just one person out.  Why couldn’t she invite her to lunch and just say,  “Let’s do lunch at _____ restaurant Tuesday.  It’s on me for anyone who came to work in that storm” instead of framing it in such a rude way.

“Boss didn’t say “[email] was meant to get to you”… That’s what OP read into the conversation. Boss said she sent it to OP so it wasn’t a secret.”

That would be like sending an invitation to someone who isn’t invited to the wedding so that “it wasn’t a secret.”

An invitation is an invitation.

@ElleNLOVE:  I deal in facts. Some people obviously don’t. It was a simple statement.

@This Time Round:  This comparison is invalid. If school buses aren’t running school is close.

@FortiesFlare:  +1. You are entitled to take whoever you want out to lunch. I definitely wouldn’t have gone to the union about my boss over something so incredibly minor. I can’t imagine that’s going to help the tension. I always ask myself, what am I hoping to accomplish with what I’m doing? I don’t think this accomplishes anything.
