Please Remind Me
Here’s what I’ve learned, you don’t need to remind people about things they really want to do.
You may have to remind people about things they don’t want to do, or about things they don’t mind doing, or about things they will do if there is nothing better to do, but if there is something that someone really, really wants to do, they don’t need a reminder.
They will check the date – see if they are available – check it again – if they are not available they will move things around in their schedule – mark it on their calendar and show up early!
What’s up with this PLEASE REMIND ME business, following an invitation?
I ain’t the fuggin dentist! The invitation is the reminder – dammit!
That’s why the dentist sends a reminder, because she knows you don’t want to go!
She’s even gotten smart enough to make you write out your own reminder, for your next visit, during your current visit; figuring if it’s in your own handwriting you will at least look at it.
Sure, life is busy. Commitments abound. Things get missed.
Hoke may need a reminder that can salmon is on sale at the Piggly Wiggly, but he doesn’t need a reminder to pick up Miss Daisy, from the Piggly Wiggly.
Life’s too short.
Write it down – remind ya self!
