So You’re Having a Benefit Event…

So - the day of the event - you get a call asking what restaurants will be there. ... The caller mentions to you that he tried to email quite a while ago but the mailbox was full. ... This is, after all, the land where plumbers and electricians rarely answer their phones, return calls, or show up when they say they will. It used to be that they were really busy, but now they just don't get around to it.

So – the day of the event – you get a call asking what restaurants will be there. And you don’t know. I guess it doesn’t really matter, does it? Or just nobody cares. The caller mentions to you that he tried to email quite a while ago but the mailbox was full. And you say “Oh, yes, it probably is.”.
