We can think the same way about smoking, drinking coffee, peeing and chatting to each other.

Smoking, getting coffee and washroom breaks aren’t the same IMO. The person is taking a break on their own terms perhaps when they’ve already finished a task or when it feels right for them. It’s different then being forced into a time slot that could interrupt your regular work routine. Even when nature calls abruptly, it may not divert your mental focus like a meeting would.
