The Florida auditor sitting in my one-man office was shocked to learn I would not be in the rest of the week. I said you scheduled the audit visit for today, so I changed my plans and am in the office today, but leave tomorrow. Apparently she assumed that the audit schedule gave her the right to stay as long as she wanted. She was planning to sit in my office for another 2-5 days. I told her sorry, but if she wanted to book 5 days, she should have booked five days. And by the way, if she had tried in advance to make me sit dormant in my office all week, I would not have agreed to the visit.
This is just insane in an Internet world. Everything she asked for in advance was sent to her electronically. Even though she is sitting right next to me, her requests to me for more data have come by email. I can't figure any reason why she is even here, unless Florida finds it cheaper to fly her around and use other people's offices rather than provide her with one of her own.
By the way, this is fairly typical of a lot of government workers in my experience. If they block a meeting on their calendar for the whole afternoon, they want it to last the whole afternoon. There are a lot of jobs out there where people are most comfortable proving their worth by showing that their calendars are always full.
