Having a consult at a coffee place and scheduled for 4pm...lady calls at 3:30 saying she's early and wondering when I'll be there. icon_confused.gif I'm like, Ummm when my husband gets home from picking up my boys from school.....

Good grief. I mean there's being punctual or there's totally messing up my schedule! ha.

I would've said "we are scheduled at 4pm, so I'll be there at 4pm sharp" lol

I think she was plotting with your purse handles! icon_biggrin.gificon_wink.gif

I agree with the above.....I'll be there at 4:00!

Well I got there at 3:45 and she was actually a really nice grandma...she ordered a cake for 100 ppl and gave me $100 cash on the spot deposit, so no complaints. thumbs_up.gif

key word..."grandma"...my grandmother literally leaves her house at least an hour before her appointment time...even though it only takes 15 minutes to drive there.


The highlight of her day is if she makes it out of her appointment before the time it was supposed to begin.

Example: "Papa and I had a doctors appointment at 10:00 but we were leaving the parking lot at 10:05"

(said with a huge smile and tons of excitement)

LOL

I'm glad your client ended up being easy to work with. I hope it continues to go smoothly.

LOL that's so funny but so true. Older people love to be very punctual or really early.

BTW Rachie might be a tad random just have to say that your avatar photo is gorgeous icon_smile.gif lol

The elderly are so cute! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif My grandparents are the same way with leaving the house early. My grandma will actually drive the longest route just to avoid the traffic/stop signs in certain areas. She also goes to the grocery store as early as possible, like before 8 a.m. She says she has to avoid "the lunch bunch". icon_biggrin.gif

Glad your appt was a success! icon_biggrin.gif
