Overheard at Work

Calendar Girl: I'd like to schedule you to present at this seminar on February 24th and 25th.

Flibby: Ug. Those aren't really good dates. I will be out of town for the entire week before that and I have to update the presentation materials. I don't think that will get done in time for the siminar.

Calendar Girl: Well, the client is coming for another training course at the same time and they're sending some people to your seminar as well. They won't come if they can't come to all of them at the same time.

Flibby: Fine. Schedule it for those dates then.

Calendar Girl: Are you sure? Will you be ready for it by that time?

Flibby: No, I just told you I wouldn't be. But if they won't come if they can't go to both, then I will have to put something together for them. It just won't be what I want it to be.

Calendar Girl: What about March 9th and 10th?

Flibby: Perfect.

Calendar Girl: Ok! I'll just tell them that February is out and March is the date.

Flibby: You're a pro.

I hate having to repeat myself.
