Keeping Appointments

Sigh.  My handyman forgot to come to our appointment.  He abjectly apologized but this is not the first time he has done this.  I'm beginning to think its time to find another handyman who is more reliable at keeping appointments.   You would think when you run your own business that keeping appointments with customers ranks way up there in important things to do to keep your business viable.  I might like to find a handyman that is more internet savy also and will communicate with me via email.

On the other hand my handyman is well handy.  He is very good at what he does when he shows up to do it.  Also I pay him in trade sometimes by working on his web site for him.  I haven't done anything to it in a long long time but it was sort of cool to trade skills with him and not have to deal in cash.  I created the web site and he fixed some plumbing for me!   All in all he is a great handyman but not a great business man.

He is supposed to come by tomorrow at 11 a.m. I think he will make it as he felt so bad about missing our 2:30 pm appointment that I believe the 11 am time is branded in his brain!

I don't understand forgetting a job. Weird. Very weird.
