Newsletter editorial, Oct '13: The value of time

Postby Dave » Thu 31 Oct 2013 13:35 GMT

This month's newsletter editorial was about different attitudes toward punctuality - why those attitudes arise and what problems they can cause when there's a clash.

How do you deal with people who don't keep appointments or keep you waiting around? Do you just shrug it off? Do you seethe quietly? Do you explain to them politely that they've missed their chance and will have to arrange another time?

Or do you have some more inventive tactic for dealing with them? If so, we'd love to hear about them - the wittier and more inventive, the better! :twisted:
