Not true. Instead of telling me that I’m all set, how about asking me? A simple phrase such as “Is there anything else I can do?” would be great. Then I wouldn’t feel dismissed, and I wouldn’t feel as if I’m annoying them, imposing on them, because I have more business to conduct.
I frequently have several other questions relating to my program the next day. What meeting room will I be in?
Would they please check to see if there’s a fax waiting for me? Then I will be ‘all set.’ Questions instead of assumptions.
