power tripping

i get it. it is a slippery slope, barely. this is a favor i’m doing, not a gateway drug. i’m going to be maybe ten minutes late. ten minutes costs $40? i think this is worse than the rate for those airplane phones on the backs of all middle seats.

We will not be giving up your seat if you come late; however, we will be cashing your no show check if you arrive after 7pm. We are sticking to this policy because if we make an exception for you, we must make an exception for everyone. That is a slippery slope we don’t want to go down. I hope you understand. Thanks for helping out with the Admit though!

Thanks,
[Group Co Chair]

Hi [Group Co Chair],

I might be a bit late for the spring dinner tonight, so if I am not there by 7pm, please don’t cash my no-show check! I have to pick up an admitted student friend to take to the dinner tonight.

Thanks,
