Your Lack of Planning Is Not My Emergency

DRF—Before the days of office copiers and home printers, the print shop was king. To get three hundred copies of a document, they would make plates and put your document on the press. This took time.

Almost every print shop that I went to had similar signs: “You want it when?” or the picture of Goofy painting the words “Plan Ahead” and not leaving enough room for the “d” at the end of “Ahead.”

There is a place for us to go the extra mile and help. Sometimes we need to exercise tough love and say, “I can’t help you right now” or “Get in line behind the others.”
