I got an email today from someone at work, informing me that my help (and the help of another 1st year associate) would be needed over the weekend. "Would you please make arrangements to be available. Thanks."
My first thought (after, "Mother Eff!", of course) was, "Would it kill him to put an exclamation point or smiley face in there?"
And then my second thought was, "Oh. That may be why my mentoring partner suggested I attend the professional women seminar."
