I just got email saying "bring XYZ on Sunday." What's happening on Sunday? I've searched my email to discover that somebody asked me if I could play tuba on Sunday. There were a couple of weblinks with information including the orchestra cues, etc. It's a five hour commitment. I was thinking "oh, well, that's a lot of time, but I guess I want to do it. I wonder who else is playing?" Well, I am (scroll down). My name is already on the list. So, uh, I guess I don't need to ask if they still need tubas.
It would have been very annoying to have not known about this and not shown up and then gotten a reputation for being flaky, which would have hardly been my fault. On the other hand, I guess I'm considered reliable. Or psychic. Or something.
