courtesy

Every year, Bahija attends a yearly CNY gathering with the i-kei's senior folks. I'm the youngest, most of them are way older than me, and senior managers in i-kei or in another company. This year, the organizer asked me to help by sending emails to all the folks. 1.5 weeks before CNY - I sent out the details. They are working in IT companies, all of them cannot live a day without 'emailing'. Yet, for 1.5 weeks - no one replied to me on their availability..... On the gathering day, I received 2 emails from 2 of my favourite seniors that they couldn't make it. I then cancelled the gathering. After I sent the cancellation email - I received a few 'angry' emails from the senior manages - that they were looking forward to attending the dinner and were dissappointed....there I was , felt cool and replied to those folks - saying that 'none of you confirmed your attendance until I called off the dinner'.......... I don't care if they are senior managers , they have no courtesy to respect my time, my effort. Silence doesn't tell me that they are available. I care less about them, it is absolutely not worth of my time to entertain these folks .....

This reminds me of what Habibi said about "Respect"... Hehehehehe... Maybe this blog should be titled "Respect" instead of "Courtesy".
