While you may think it is a fun position, this is not what you may have come to expect from me. You have been warned.
Dear Mr. Stood-Me-Up,
I am going to call you by your initials because typing your name is too time consuming.
I wasted plenty of time before I got to this screen. Like the time I spent reading your profile, messages, texts and notes. I cleared my calendar of work which needed doing so I could get ahead to make room for spending face time. I even took my picture in my boardroom so you would know which one I was when you arrived. We will not even talk about the traffic to the middle of 10-miles-past-I-have-no-idea-where-I-am.
So, here’s the deal, SMU. I had a fabulous cup of coffee made by a really sweet guy. I left him my number. You? I likely will not answer when you call.
Yes. This is punishment. At any time during the 36 hours between making the plans and time I left where those plans were, you had an opportunity to say something. For example:
- I may be late.
- I may not be able to make it.
- I cannot get there for another hour.
- Could we reschedule?
- I am a complete ass.
I would have been amenable to any of those. On the other hand, what I will never be amenable to is the beg for forgiveness. Yes, I am that cold-hearted. You will need to read the link to understand I wrote the last sentence in sarcasm font.
Since you do not value my time at all, I hardly think you will be worth making time to allow you another chance.
You should join the site for people who have no time in their schedules or simply take courses in time management and etiquette. Surely, it will help you with the next one who comes along.
Why is it so difficult to communicate? Can you write a letter a day for a month?
