Dear Diary ... an open letter to those trying to get into my schedule ...

A well defended diary is a great and wondrous thing and at the moment, it seems that it is taking some considerable effort to fend off the last minute notions of various individuals.

So to save confusion, may I offer this helpful guide:

  • Last minute means you are the one with too much time on your hands, because you don't have many demands on your time does not mean that this isn't the case for others. My schedule often fills up six or more weeks in advance. So tomorrow may be free for you, it does not mean that its the same for me.
  • Don't try and give me appointments without checking my availability. If you are the sensitive type and unable to cope with rejection, this will not be a great experience.
  • Online/remote does work, just ask, but try and become familiar with the technology. I will not be your help desk.
  • Yes, it may be urgent, is this because you or someone else has left it too late.
  • Don't doodle then wait ages before announcing the date. It may surprise you to discover that any empty unfilled slots will be given away while you twiddle your thumbs.
