I had a client who I was supposed to meet to today.
I got there early, and waited and waited. Ten minutes became twenty. He did not call me. Apparently, he did send an email, but I don’t use a smart phone (which I told him before) so I can’t check my email once I leave. I had given him my number.
After over thirty minutes, I left fuming. I even went back briefly to see if he had arrived. Nope. Nothing.
Finally, I went home, angry at the waste of time and money. This is the second time he’s been late, but last time it wasn’t this bad. I don’t want to do business with him anymore.
When I finally get home, I find his email, sent twenty minutes after we were supposed to meet, saying “I’m sorry. I’m parking my car now and will be there if you don’t mind waiting.”
Are you kidding me?
I was long gone by then. So I guess we both wasted our time. If it had been a one time thing, I might have given him a pass, but twice. No. No way.
I took care of some shopping and errands, but otherwise a waste of time.
He’s probably fuming himself because I didn’t wait around for over 30 minutes from the agreed upon meet time. When we set a time and agree on it, a person should show up when it’s something business-wise. He didn’t even really apologize in the email.
Ugh… I’m still angry about it.
