Day 1: I send an email to all faculty with Request 1 for information.
Days 1-9: No response.
Day 10: I send an email to all faculty with Request 1 for information (Repeated), this time making it sound more urgent.
Days 10-15: A few responses dribble in.
Day 16: I send an email to 4 faculty members with Request 2 for something else needed for an upcoming event.
Day 18: One of the 4 faculty members – WHO NEVER RESPONDED TO REQUEST 1 – responded to Request 2, saying “This would be a lot easier if we had a list of info [that I asked for in Request 1].”
Yes. IT WOULD BE EASIER IF I HAD THE INFORMATION I REQUESTED. Perhaps you should send it to me. GRRRR.
