So there is this guy that kinda works for me and has no ability to communicate effectively. I have to go visit one of his customer's to address some issues they are having. Looking at the schedule, he is supposed to be there. So I call him up and ask "Are you going to be in Biloxi tomorrow?" and instead of a yes or no question, I get "Well I'm in Nashville today and I'm doing some stuff up here... blah... blah... blah..." I set the phone down and walk off to refill my coffee and when I get back he's still talking. 10 minutes later and he's done talking and I still have no idea if he's going to Biloxi tomorrow. I ask again, he goes off on another tangent about what he's doing in Nashville and begins telling me about what he's doing the day after the day I am referring to. I really hope I don't come off as an ass to him but I had to interrupt him with a "Dude, I don't mean to cut you off, but all I need is a yes or no as to whether or not you're going to be there tomorrow." I pretty much have to tell him that during every conversation. That's 20 minutes of my time that I will never get back.
