Advance warning is good

I'm so glad Special K is so thoughtful that she always gives it.

I've made it a habit to be a minute or two late to meetings, since "advance" warning here tends to mean "ten minutes after it was still relevant." Case in point, this message, which was sent at 9:29 am regarding our 9:30 am meeting.

To all Staff:

The time for beginning the Management meeting that is scheduled to begin at 9:30 am this morning (Wednesday, 7/1/09) in the conference room has been changed. The current start time for the meeting will be 10am (this morning in the conference room). I will inform you of other changes if any occur. Thank you. With best wishes.

Special K

For the record, we have never in the history of my working here had a single staff meeting anywhere but the conference room. But thanks so much for always making it clear, Special K!
