Miss Information is annoyed by the coffee situationMiss Information has returned from her vacation. She spent much of the time drinking the most glorious coffee-esque beverage. Since returning home she has spent every waking moment attempting to recreate this infusion of the gods. Alas, her local baristas are growing increasing less sympathetic to her plight. (Apparently their espresso machines "can't do that sort of thing". Bastards.)
So, instead of leaving her in peace to search for employment in a part of the world where good coffee is plentiful, her customers and colleagues are pestering her with meaningless requests. Bastards.
She opened an e-mail dated August 24 asking her to update a file. The deadline for updates to that file was August 15, you know, when Miss Information was still in the country? Sorry, pal. Miss Information was half way around the world and couldn't update your file for you. Perhaps you noticed she was uncharacteristlically quiet at the time? It's because she wasn't actually there.
Nice to notice her presence was missed.
