For many months, I have been in a position to observe a little more of what is happening in the business, and I do notice a certain trend. Maybe it has been like this for years, but I just started to realize it more in the last 6 months.
This is becoming a real nightmare for ladies, and eventually nice gentlemen will start paying the price for some unrespectful men. Canceling an appointment once in while is something that can happen to anyone; ladies, men. I did it 2 months ago, and as soon as I knew, I contacted the lady and apologize. She understood, and she thanked me to have informed her as soon as I knew. A last minute event, an emergency, being sick, car problem can happen to anybody. There can be a lot of valid reasons. But the same person, over and over... UNACCEPTABLE.
Imagine, a lady accepts a booking. Then a nice gentlemen contacts the lady after, for the same time, and she has to refuse that appointment. The first guy, call at the time of his appointment to cancel or does not even call.
Result: She ends up with “0” appointment...
Last week, I was with a lady. She had 3 cancellations for the same night, with a room to pay and at that point, I was the only customer for her night.
I felt so bad for her, so bad as a man and so angry at these guys...I have so much respect for her, despite that situation, she remained nice and sweet. But in my mind, I told myself, I can’t do much, but I will do what I can and share it with all of you.
So gentlemen, just a little more disciplined on your planning, a little more respect for the lady and we will all benefit from it.
