I'll agree with this if you change it to '90% of success is showing up on time'.
Posted By: Kate Marie . If you sir were pressed for time, maybe you should have let her know..
No, sorry. You've got it completely backwards now, and this is where problems arise. You're staking out the position that it's unreasonable for me to expect you to be on time. Here's the deal: just assume that my time is as valuable as your own. Your client pays you a lot of money for a short period of time. Be on time.

and a lousy cooling system in your room. This is not her fault.
I never said the hot room was her fault. Even in a perfect room, don't assume your client is happy to sit around when you're 25 minutes late to a one hour appt. Act like a business woman instead of a high school girl, and you will be treated accordingly. --z
