If you make an appointment and just don't show up, you're either very forgetful or inconsiderate.  Your time is no more important than the person(s) providing you service.

This is just a bit of a rant due to a client not showing up. I go turn on the heat, get the towel warmer going, set up the massage table, and basically set everything up nice? No call/no show. My time is worth nothing to this inconsiderate individual.

The flip side of that is when you make an appointment and have to wait for 2 hours. Our time is as important as the one we made the appointment with.

I agree 100%. That goes for people cancelling 15 minutes before a meeting.

I agree, so my suggestion is not to book that person in the future.

I hate it when people are late or don't show, unless I get a phone call ....the worst is when your home is up for sale and someone makes an appointment and no show, gets me really pissed...you go to a lot of effort and clean and tidy your home and sit there waiting...

If I can't make it to an appointment which it is extremely rare not to do so then I call in advance to reschedule. I know that there are others that might need that appointment time so it is just the polite thing to do.

Sometimes I do think people actually do forget. I mean heck sometimes I forget the day of the week myself and have came close to missing an appointment. Sometimes people are like "Oh well" I will just make another and not care.

A friend of mine that runs a business actually charges a small fee for those that cancel without notice unless it was a valid reason they couldn't contact her. Rarely does she now have a person to just cancel without notice.

That is rude...and one good reason I can think of for having a cell phone. And the excuse might be "I'm sorry I can't make my appt since I'm in the hospital having my baby..."

Yes and I feel that way towards the dr practitioners as well. One time i had an appointment they kept me wait so very long every time I finally left a note on the exam table saying my time is important too, walked out and got a new dr.

Definitely a pet peeve of mine. And honestly half an hour late without calling is just as bad as not showing up.

I couldn't find anything better but the slap could be taken in 2 ways. It could be me wanting to slap somebody for wasting my time and energy. It could signify that blowing me off is a slap in the face but I just couldn't find anything better. You're still young enough to box right?
