Never make a business appointment with someone for a specific time and then just not show up.
It’s never cool.

Update: I should probably post “why” its not cool. Its not cool because by being late you are saying to them “I do not value your time.” You can NEVER make the claim that you care about them because by being late or not showing up at all, you have already proven otherwise with your actions alone. ** Bitter content removed ** I had written an additional sentence or two but after reading through it this morning, I feel that it was a bit over the top. Being late for anything is one of my biggest pet peeves. You can almost completely control this event and by being late you also show that you have no control over events that you obviously should. Bottom line: being late shows a lot about the person who is late. None of them are positive.
