This is one of those things I wanted to share with you, purely because I think many will read this and understand just how much I sometimes want to bang my head against the wall.
Little back story here.... I had a person set to come for their appointment, and they texted to cancel:
Them: Not going to be able to make it today. My next time off is the weekend.
Me: Ok, when are you thinking for the weekend?
Them: Whatever is good for u
Me: Ok well let's start with, what day would you prefer?
Me: Ok so Saturday I will be home until 6 pm. Does a time before that work for you?
Me: Ok, what time are you thinking?
Them: What time is good for u
Me: Would you rather come in the morning or afternoon?
Me: Ok, how about 10 am?
Them: Can u do 8?
Honestly... the reason I ask people when they want to come, is to give them the opportunity to tell me, like in this case... "hey, I want to come Saturday at 8." This conversation was a complete waste of effort on both our parts. She keeps asking me when's good for me... and then when we finally narrow it down and I specify when is good for me... she wants a specific time that's NOT the time I specified. So what was the point of her asking when was good for me? I guess I don't get it.
She really could have said, "hey, I can't make it today, can I come Saturday at 8?" and had this conversation turn out the same way. Really. And it would have saved us both some effort.
I don't bite, people. If you want a specific day and time, ask for it. If I'm not around, I may tell you that, and maybe it won't work out for that specific day and time, but there's no point to dance around it like this. That is all.
