I waited until 3:00 PM and then sent an email with cheerful but inquisitive overtones.
Me: Hi "Y" - I'm just checking in to see if we heard any news about the Board meeting yesterday, do you know if they met?
Y: NO, a Board member was ill and they were unable to meet. I promise to call you as soon as I know anything.
Me: OK, Great. I look forward to hearing on a response from the Board as well as any status reports stating any further developments or delays.
YES, the word no was typed in Caps. For about 2 seconds I thought maybe she had hit the cap lock key and then I decided, NO SHE IS JUST FREAKIN YOUNG AND APPARENTLY NOT AWARE IN EMAIL LAND ALL CAPS MEANS YOU ARE YELLING AT ME. There is no excuse for this when you are working in a professional environment). While we are on pet peeves, I hate when people overuse the "LOL" thing. I get it, you think something is funny but it's just simply overused.
I doubt she picked up on my hints/request to keep me in the loop. I should have just said, could you call me every day at noon becuase hey, let's face it - I will be a great parent, I'm just a bit neurotic. I'm sure that would have gone over like a fart in church.
The wait continues..........
