I don't like being late for appointments etc I would rather be 10 minutes early than 1 minute late. So with that in mind I was between 5 and 10 minutes early for my dentist appointment this morning. Appointment was for 0845, so I assume it was the first of the day. From when I got in there until I was called at 0855!!!!! there was no-one went out of the door so NO previous appointments! No apology when I went in either.
Thing is, if I was 10 minutes late I might have forfeited my appointment and possibly even be charged for it and be made to feel guilty for wasting an appointment that someone else could have used, so surely a wee apology wouldn't have been too much to ask................would it?
