I had a 5pm board meeting cancel unexpectedly and I found myself with two free hours where I'm not supposed to be home or office. I NEVER get free time like this!
I contacted my regular - she didn't the respond - but that's my fault (she's not short notice friendly).
I reached out to another - no response. Two hours later I sent a note saying that I was sorry we didn't connect.
Reached out to a third - she was available - cleared references etc. Asked to confirm time available - no response. Texted again 1hr later - no response. THEN - my second call replied she is available.
Now I haven a confirmed appointment with someone that isn't responding and someone saying she can meet at 5.
What's the rule?
I'll be pissed if I blow my unexpected free time but I don't want to book and ditch.
