I totally agree. I live in an apartment complex. I ONLY meet people in front of the leasing office. I tell them to text me when they are here and it will only take me 2 minutes to get up there. This has alleviated a great part of the no show issue. Although I still am waiting around and can’t go take care of errands at least I am home. I would say 20% are no shows. How much effort could it possibly take to text “I changed my mind”? I am afraid to leave negative feedback for these people because of possible retaliation. It is just not worth it. They could turn around and say I did not show And sometimes that same person might actually buy from me later. For me I have had to use it as a exercise in forgiveness, toleration, flexibility and the mental cost of doing business.
That's just as frustrating as people lowbaling and haggling for a price and when you finally agree to terms, they Whodini on you. What was the point of trying to get to a certain price point and not following through. I guess some just have too much time on their hands?!
