Are the bells followed by a siren and the words "dive, dive, dive"? Dilbert should get Wally to volunteer to take the PHB's place. If they do it right, the vendor might not show up for the balance of the year....

There are several ways to resolve this problem. First, you can tell the boss that the customer meeting is at the customers offices, and he will have to have his admin get him a security clearance badge before he goes over (I once kept a manager away from my customer for almost 6 months with this one- when they catch on, there's always the "oh they must have changed the policy since I got mine" stance). If you are on good terms with your customer you can also subtly suggest they limit your company's number of persons in the meeting. Then there's always the carrot on a stick approach, and reply "oh great! This means I can tell (insert customers name) that he doesn't have to setup the golf outing between his manager and you, you can just come with me today and get it all done at one time! (of course if your boss isn't a golfer, pick some other activity that he knows he can get free, or company expense that he'll be able to possibly have at some later point in time.

PHB sure is doing his part in keeping the secret experiment moving along.
