"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

Now you see them...

...Now you don't.
Six potential clients today, five at my voluntary place of work and one private.
One client arrived for appointment.
Two clients cancelled - an hour before their appointments.
Three clients did not appear, including the private one.
Sometimes, I wonder why I bother!

  1. Wow! Five no-shows out of six possibles? That's just awful. I hope they all had some darn good excuses!!

    I'm sorry you had your time wasted like that.

  2. That is so typical nowadays, but there really is no excuse for it most of the time. xx

  3. Flighty, Jay, 2 did ring to say they couldn't come but only an hour before their appointments. It does get a bit disheartening.

  4. That is highly inconsiderate.
    Sometimes people forget that you have a life too, no wonder it is disheartening when you volunteer your time to be there for these people, and they can't deliver the same courtesy.
