“Good morning! Do you have any idea when those A4 notebooks will arrive? I think I ordered them quite a while ago… And I really need them before the end of the week. Thanks! -Jo”
Uh oh. Now you remember. You received an email from Jo about two weeks ago asking for twenty notebooks, and you were so swamped with work on the day that you completely forgot to put the order in with the supplier. They take AT LEAST four days to deliver, and now Jo will have to wait even longer.
