    Hi all,

    Can anyone explain the difference between last minute notice and short notice?

    That's exactly what I was wondering too. I've heard short notice, late notice, very late notice, but never last minute notice.

    Yesterday I found "last-minute notice" in an e-mail message. I was wondering, that was why I asked.

    Thank you all!

    In that case, take it to mean very short notice.
