Be prepared and have no regrets

Vanish in a pocket

とある会議でのこと.登壇者が発表途中で

「この実験施設に関しては,今日の午後,A氏が詳細を報告する予定です」

とA氏に丸投げ発言.そのA氏,僕の友人なんですが,たまたま隣に座っておりました.

テーブルの上にはノートパソコン,A氏は腕組みしたままPowerPointの画面を真剣な面持ちで睨んでおります.

「なにやってんの?」と,パソコン画面を覗き込んだら…

たった今アナウンスされた施設の名前がタイトル行にど~んと書かれ,その下には施設の詳細,と思いきや,

白紙です orz

「これ,後で発表するんだよね?」

何も答えませんでした.

It happned to me at a technical meeting. When a speaker was giving a talk, he mentioned inanely that “This experimental facility will be reported by Dr. A this afternoon in detail.”

Well. Dr. A, just sitting next to me, is one of my friends, was staring a PowerPoint page on a laptop screen with a serious face.

I just curiously asked him “What are you doing ?” and looking into his PC screen,
and found that

There is a title page with a showy tile line of the PowerPoint, which declares the experimental facility, as I understood that he intends to write something about it. I expected he might have several sentences below that explaining the facility in technical jargons.

Well… it was empty.

I asked him if “Are you going to give a talk on this ? Will you be able to prepare this by your time slot ?”

He simply kept silence.
