Idiot: I’m going to schedule a call for us to work on this together
Idiot: I set up a call for us Thursday at 3PM
Me: Yes, I see it. That works.
Idiot: Oh, and we have that call on Thursday, right? You still good for that?
Me: All set.
Idiot: Are we still on for tomorrow at 3?
Me: Good to go.
Me: I just heard you are having a crazy day. Are we still okay for our call at 3pm?
Idiot: Oh, yeah. I just have some prep to do before then, but we’re still good.
Me: Okay, great. Just let me know if things change. It’s no problem.
Idiot: Will do!
Thursday 1PM (at the end of another, unrelated call)
Me: I’ll talk to you later… Is 3PM still working for you?
Idiot: Yeah, I just need to finish some stuff, but we are good.
Thursday 3:05 PM
Me: Hey, um, so, are you joining the call?
Idiot: Oh, crap. I’m so sorry. I can’t today. Is it okay if I push it out to another time?
