Garrett - I'll be in DC Friday morning and wondered if you were able to join me for breakfast? I'm staying near the capitol.
Good to hear from you! I hope everything is going well for you and [Company]. I'm still in Salt Lake, so I won't be able to meet you for breakfast; on top of that, I have meetings all morning and afternoon, so if you meant SLC and not DC, I might not be able to get away until evening. If you are in DC, enjoy your stay!With my response, you'd think I have either helped to clear up the confusion on the location, or at least given him an opportunity to clarify what he meant. I mean, he knows I'm in Salt Lake. They flew me out to their corporate headquarters, and bought my plane ticket. That flight didn't leave from Washington National Airport (DCA), I left from Salt Lake International Airport (SLC). Also, we know each other because we were both on an emailing list of English/Technical Writing majors from Utah State University. Sure, I could have moved back east, but there were some clues.
The crazy part is, he responded back, and I'm flabbergasted. Because, as I said, it is important to keep good networking contacts, I will probably leave it with his response, but part of me wants to respond... Here's his reply:
Another time then. I'll probably be back to DC in juneYeah... remember how I still live in Salt Lake? If you're in DC in June, I won't likely be able to meet you for breakfast then, either.
