Very Important People

Okay, dig this. This is from an email from a very important person who does stuff for the Association I work for.

Subject: RE: December 1, 2003 Seminar

Dear Mae, Attached please find a document that I would like included in the materials for the seminar that Important Guy and I will be leading at [place] on December 1. I may have other materials to include, but would like to confer with Important Guy first. Can you try and set up a time that would be convenient for a call?

Um, it's you and him. This isn't a "conference call". Call him. Or at least have your admin call his admin. Why would you include someone who doesn't work in either of your offices to schedule this? That would triple the work. Christ, you cc'ed him on the email. How about, "hey Important Guy! When's a good time to chat?"

Think about it folks. These people could buy and sell your ass three times over and they can't figure out how to arrange a 2-person telephone call.
