Writing these emails wouldn’t be so bad if somebody READ them

The text of an email I sent yesterday:

For the [funding agency name redacted] report, I need “brief biographical information in one page or less” from all of you. Basically, this is a one-page version of your [redacted]; the conflict of interest info is not required. I am attaching examples from [redacted]. Please send me your 1-page bios in the next week or so.

POP QUIZ:

1. How many pages should this bio be?

2. How many people got the wrong answer to #1 yesterday??

ARGH.

    “Surely you didn’t mean that my oh-so-important life/bio can be edited to a single page? What of my award in 6th grade for least persistent student? You want to leave that out?”
