Reason #2974 that I’m glad I’m a librarian and not an IT professional…

When I schedule a library session with a class, spend time preparing a coherent and useful session, and then head into the classroom, my audience generally shows up. (They may not want to, but they do, which is something.)

When the IT department schedules training workshops, they may or may not put hours and hours of work into preparing a coherent and useful training session only to have four walls and a bunch of computers stare back at them while they wait and wait for a participant, any participant, to show up. Talk about your thankless efforts.
