I May Just Go Back To Bed…

So… it’s going to be one of “those” days, is it?
 
Among the early calls so far this morning:
 
“Hello can I please confirm my viewing is going ahead at 9.15am this morning?”
 
Oh. That would be the appointment you originally made for 9am on Friday, which you subsequently cancelled on Thursday, saying that you’d get back to us to arrange another time. It might have been handy if you’d spoken to us rather than just write it in your diary…
 
“Hello, I’m a carpet fitter. Mr —– has asked me to quote for new carpets in the empty flat he’s buying. I’m sitting in the car outside the property now”.
 
Did the words “empty flat” not, at any time, make you think that it would be a good idea to make an appointment with us before setting off? How, exactly, did you expect to get into the property to measure up?
Yep. It’s definitely Monday morning.
