“Got a deadline thrown at me with less than 24 to complete it. I tried contacting the person who has the info I need multiple times, but he hasn't gotten back to me. I am feeling like it's my fault and I could have done more, but I don't want to blow up this guy's phone. My coworkers are saying not to worry about the deadline since the actual event is so far away, but I still feel anxious. I don't want the person who set the deadline to think I'm incompetent.”
