(T is going to Atlanta for another convention.)
Me: "Have you written the two thank-you notes that we spoke about five weeks ago? - I didn't think so, I was just wondering what this week's excuse is so I can log it."
T: "The lack of response was because I was in the air - And the same excuse. Depression, and not wanting to do it simply because it feels like you're bullying me, because that seems like the entirely wrong reason"
In other news, I've just completed 250 of my thank-you notes.
