I think all of us know people that are sort of the “last minute type.”  Now, I’ll admit that I tend to procrastinate…a lot.  But we’re not talking about me.  So get off my back!!  What I’m talking about are people that will sort of spring laborious and/or inconvenient requests on you.  “Can you help me move tomorrow, Tuesday, at noon?”  That would have been fantastic to know LAST week when I could have made plans to take the day-off.  Sometimes there are extenuating circumstances that give rise to such last minute notices.  Aside from those reasons, I guess you can give them a response equally as delinquent.  “Let me check my calendar and get back to you next month!”
