My morning, in brief:

Annoying Person From Other Department For Whom I Am Creating An Unnecessarily Complicated WordPress Template: So we need this ASAP. Like next week. I'm only telling you about it now because of reasons. Also we need an insane number of tutorials , like four times as many as you ever offer any other department, where you stand around and try to explain things for two hours at a time while we roundly ignore you, complain, interrupt you and talk loudly amongst ourselves. Because we're special.
Me: Uh, okay, I've busted my ass and gotten that template done for you in two days. Have a look ASAP and answer the attached questions so we can have a snowball's chance in hell of having the dozen sites you need, based off of this template, ready in time for people to attend your insane number of tutorials.
Annoying Person: *silence for a solid week*
Annoying Person: So I haven't heard back from you. Did I mention we needed all of this ASAP because we're special?
Me: I sent you an email with everything you asked for a week ago. Check your Inbox again?
Annoying Person: Oh, there it is! Let me just say thank you in an incredibly insincere way and not answer any of the questions you asked me.
Me: Uh, okay, can you have a look at these very important questions without the answers to which I cannot move forward with completing your project?
Annoying Person: *silence for a further three days*
Annoying Person: Haven't you made any progress on this YET? We need these ready ASAP! Didn't I say ASAP enough times?
Me: *tears out hair, screams, attempts to compose YET ANOTHER polite response*
