A few weeks ago, I texted four female friends: “Want to have dinner tomorrow night?” Cut to forty texts later, and we had finally figured out another day that worked for everyone. Until my friend suddenly remembered she had a work event that night.
But then I remembered a meeting site called Doodle, which I figured would save the day. You suggest a few days, and then everyone checks off which days they’re free (or not). You easily see on the chart which day is best. It’s a gazillion times faster than texting back and forth.
So we did a poll and found a day right away. But then…
Gemma: WAIT I am sorry I have a book launch that night. Can we do it the following week?
Anna: What??! We had a DOODLE poll. Is nothing SACRED?

Joanna: omg, thank god, May 28th. same time, place, NO ONE CAN BAIL.
Lucy: What about be late?! I need to know how late everyone will be so I can plan accordingly.
And here we are. Cheers!
Do you have the same scheduling insanity? Any tips???
