No-shows...no phone call, no note in the mail later, not even an email...when a person has a scheduled class (to meet with their agenda no less) and they miss the time I have made available to them, that...I am sorry, counts for a class.
I can understand that an emergency occurred, I can't understand that notification ( of some kind, at some point) failed.
Phones are everywhere (and almost everyone on earth has a cell phone). Then there is the trusty mail service...send a note card....how about an email...I am thinking everyone on earth has a computer too.
None-the-less it counts for a class. 3 hours taken away from the 27 hours designated for the project.
Missing 1 class won't cause a person to not finish the project but, missing 4 classes will.
I don't see myself as momma, and I shouldn't need to remind a person they have a class...I keep a calendar, and usually so does the student.
When I am stood up, my time has been horribly wasted.
I didn't get notice, so I couldn't schedule something else in that space.
I can't get involved in an on going project of my own.
I can't even get housework done...I am not IN the house.
This is horribly unfair to me because, I have every time space on every day of the calendar marked in with appointments, work, teaching, and shows. I need every free space I might suddenly get to be used wisely creating work to sell, catching up on paperwork, or maybe just to get a moment to rest.
So, do you see my point?
Am I unjust to make the violator of time used wisely, own up to the offense?
Or, do you think that I should just brush it aside and add another time slot so they can catch up?
Of course, perhaps I should have my secretary put in a reminder call?....yeah that must be the answer.
Wanted: proficient being for occupation; secretary. Must have a calendar and know how to use a time piece and operate a phone using proper etiquette.
Must be able to use mental telepathic processes to communicate with students and appointees.
I won't put a number in...this is a test. ;)
