You’d think this one would be pretty obvious, especially for highly educated people, but it’s not. Nope, not at all. It’s apparently much more fun to keep your week long seminar a secret from your admin until about three days before you leave. This way, your admin can have the fun of re-scheduling your entire week.
Just don’t be too surprised when most of these appointments end up re-scheduled for afternoon. Angry admins will take our revenge how and when we can.
