    Worked IT for two year in my University’s library, and the librarians would do this all the time. Then they’d be unavailable and unhelpful, and then they’d wonder why the work wasn’t done on time when it was never a deadline in the first place. Normally you would hope you could talk through it with them, but with the power imbalance between the librarians (who were actually all faculty, not staff) and the lowly staff people in the library (some of whom, myself included, were students) our word was universally ignored.
