Hello Tony… It’s Bob
Did you review the contract I sent you?
So it’s finished? Will you send it to me by e-mail?
My e-mail address? Frankly, I don’t remember it !!!
Just wait a minute let me check
Nicolee, what is my e-mail address?
No, no, that’s my home e-mail address
Listen, I can’t find it. Let me check and call you back
Oh ! .. You are going for lunch…
OK, I’ll send you the address by fax. You’ll have it when you get back, ok?
OK. So give me your fax number
What!!! You don’t know it???
OK, here’s what we’ll do. You e-mail me your fax number and I’ll fax you my e-mail address
No, that won’t work.  Wait, I’m getting mixed up.. Let me think …
So … Hum.. Well … Yeah …
What’s your cell-phone number?
Oh, your battery is dead… Mine too…
OK, listen, here’s what we’ll do …
You charge your cell-phone battery. I’ll call you in a couple of hours and leave you my e-mail address in your voice mail.
Then you take my e-mail address in your voice mail and you e-mail me your fax number.
Then I can fax you my e-mail address
That’s plan A. Now for plan B!
I send my self an e-mail to see what my e-mail address is and then I record a message for you in my voice mail.
When you get it, you send me the answer on my pager
So then, I send you a fax with my e-mail address
Complicated? No, it’s not complicated at all …
We just need a bit of coordination… and luck…
There’s also a third possibility that’s much simpler : Plan C
You send me the contract directly by express messenger
Yeah!… It’s the best plan strategically speaking…
But actually, I have a small question…
What was I supposed to send you by e-mail? My e-mail address, my fax number, my cell-phone number, pager, telephone?
Oh! You don’t remember either.
It would probably be a good idea to have periodic bilateral coordination meetings concerning protocols for internal commun...
But anyway, since your office is at the end of corridor, I’ll come by to pick you up in 2 minutes… Ok? Bye!
