A lawyer for a tenant keeps calling me about a very, very small deal. She knows my boss is away. She knows that the decision needs to be made by my boss. She knows I have no authority.
But still she keeps calling. "Is there any word? Have you heard anything?" No, because my boss is still in Asia. "Can you change such and such?" No, because I have no authority. That decision needs to be made by my boss. Who is away.
Which you know.
So stop calling.
