A communicator cries out at a client. Can we get an amen?

A communicator-correspondent who will go unnamed bleats on Facebook:

Dear Senior Executive: if you won’t speak to me, or email me, or provide me with ANY INFORMATION about what you like/don’t like, want/don’t want, and what your intentions are for the communication I’ve been directed to create for you out of thin air, then you shouldn’t be surprised when the components of the draft don’t meet your requirements. I’m good, but I’m—sadly—not actually a mind-reader!!!

It’s the old, “write down my ideas as if I had them” routine, and it’s as dispiriting as ever.

Executive communications professionals may hope they get their reward in heaven, for heaven knows, they have suffered here on earth.
