ST. LOUIS—Citing crucial budget meetings, the rollout of a seasonal ad blitz, and several can't-miss golf games, Hewlett–Packard Director Of Regional Marketing Randall Fulmer has tentatively re-slated his wife's birthday next Tuesday for early or late October. "Nancy—just too much on plate to give you an hour in re: your DOB anytime in the next 60 to 90 days," Fulmer's assistant wrote in an email to Mrs. Fulmer Monday. "Suggest we try to squeeze it in between late-Sept. conference and mid-Oct. reorganizational period. Thoughts?" Although Fulmer would not reveal the exact content of his wife's reply, he reportedly instructed his assistant to set aside time in early August to accommodate his wife's disappointment.
