My team is divided into to two groups. The techs and the coordinators. The coordinators are required to stay up to an hour later than the last tech. Tonight we have a team dinner that starts at 6. The techs will all leave to arrive at 6, the coordinators must stay until 6 so we'll arrive for dinner at least 25 minutes late. Out of the 4 coordinators, 1 has already decided she isn't going because she doesn't feel well. The other 3, including myself, are undecided due to the fact that we either have children that need to be picked up, a long travel home, or have other plans. Plus we just are not feeling the "team" vibe. I must mention that most of our team doesn't get along and feel the dinner is forced.
Would if be wrong if the 3 of us showed up for dinner, had drinks with the team and ordered our food to go?
Based on the comments here is some additional information: 1. I am asking for others opinion per the request of the 3 team members. 2. The time conflict is well known as it comes up every time there is a team dinner planned. We (the coordinators have mentioned this several times and have even asked that we be allowed to leave early to attend but are told we need to stay and arrive late) 3. The invite for dinner was sent 1 week ago.
