Irritation that will not produce a pearl

A faculty member has asked me to do something that his own staff should be doing. Or more precisely what one person on his staff should do. Namely to arrange the itinerary for a guest to the Center. It would be impolitic for me to refuse, so I didn't. The Center Director did ask this faculty member to invite this person. Still, it's pretty iffy to ask *me* to be do this. And honestly, it's not my idea of fun to track down assorted appropriate faculty schedules for meetings and get someone to take this guest to lunch. Ugh.

Okay, got a chance to talk to said faculty member. They don't trust the above mentioned staff member to carry out this task with the attention it deserves. Ouchity-ouch. I'll do this this time, but only because the Director asked the faculty member to invite this guest. I'll act like it's no problem, when it's really a pain in the ass.

However, unless the Director is involved, this will not happen again. They need to figure out what to do with this staff person. I know the whole building likes to consider the adminstration staff as their extra helpers, but this is pushing it.
