RESCHEDULING AN APPOINTMENT
By Natasha Cooper
Oh, boy! Thats just what I want to do wait all day!
So I ask for a favor:
If someone cancels for Monday afternoon, could you give me a call? If not, Ill simply come in on Tuesday.
Ah, but of course, they wont promise to call me. Instead Im told:
Check back with us later today.
So I do what Im told:
Im calling to check whether you had any cancellations for Monday afternoon or any time on Tuesday.
If I luck out, and there is an opening, I jump at it:
Oh, thats great! Could you write me in?
And if its not my lucky day? Then, I guess, Ill take a good, long book with me for Tuesdays wait in line
