...I'm seriously stuck.

I've had a lot of work suddenly due all at once, which is a problem because I'm not good at tight schedules at the best of times, let alone when I suddenly need to throw up or lie down at random intervals. But I've been tackling it valiently.

I have three things due by next week. Last night, I finished number 1! Go me!

Sent number 1 off with a triumphant "finished!" email, and felt very relieved that I only had to cram 2 and 3 into next week.



Just woke up to an email of "you can't be finished, because there's more to part 1 and it's not due to reach you until tomorrow".

!!!

...why on earth didn't they send me that bit with the rest of it? And what the heck do I do now?

Not sure what to do about letting them know my scheduling issues. Especially since 2 and 3 both go to different people (1 and 2 are to the same person), and neither of them really values the other person's project. Hence the freaking out.



...help?

Schedule a meeting for the three of you. Explain your dilemma. Wait for them to start shouting at each other, then quietly excuse yourself to throw up. Don't come back until they've come to an agreement.

Or:

Schedule a meeting for the three of you. Explain your dilemma and immediately excuse yourself to throw up. Wait until they start shouting at each other and then return to be the voice of reason.

Or:

Is either of them your boss? If so, they get priority. If not, get your boss to sort it out.

Or:

When they say they need it next week, when do they *really* need it, and what are the consequences if they don't get it?

Why the heck did they only send you part of part one and not tell you that you didn't have everything? WTF???
