There is "oh, everyone's busy" and then there is this. I'm "chairing" a call for a designer call right now (basically taking notes) for the first time ever, so this is something new (and perhaps a bone from my boss in an effort to keep me from fleeing). They're talking about the past action items. Type a little, write a little, type a little, write a little, type type type, write a little, write a little more.
Basically every request I get is ZOMG I NEED THIS NOW. It's why most people who ask things of me thing I'm a huge Richard.
