Tell me who, when, where and how.

I do not like when people tell me we are going to meet X.


and then skip all the info about
when:
where:
who:
what:
and the amount of time we are suppose to meet so that I can put it in my calendar.

I do not know why people do that. I guess they are not as organized in their thoughts and patterns as I am? I do not expect this from the faculty.

  1. Ha, my colleagues are the same way. There must be a transition point somewhere along the way to distinguished professor that turns our brains to mush.

    Sounds like a manifestation of the kind of seminar where the speaker is so well versed in the background that they forget to deliver a slide or two on the proper background for non-experts, thus leaving the audience with a connect-the-dots exercise.

  3. I really hate this. When I was in grad school, and from conversations with people in academia, this is really common. When these same people have to interact with me (where some of their money comes from) they're waaaaay more considerate. What happened to manners towards everyone?
