    may happen to

    Dear all,

    In the following sentence:

    Morning meetings take place around 7:30 Eastern Time, no matter where you may happen to work.

    Why does the writer add "may happen to" to this sentence. Is there any implication here?

    In other words, what's the difference between "no matter where you may happen to work" and "no matter where you work"?

    Thanks in advance.
