    Went to quilt class, instructor never showed up. Went home and called her when her shop opened. She never wrote it on her calendar. Rescheduled the class . Everytime I think of it, I get mad. thanks for letting me vent!!

    I would be upset also, as it was waste of your gas, time and she should make it right with you

    I would be so embarrassed as the instructor. Did she not offer something in return for the time, inconvenience, plus wasted gas she caused you - maybe discount on future class or quilt item?

    Customer service seems to becoming a thing of the past here lately. People have no honor and pride in what they do...and I'm running into it across the board. Its very discouraging at times.

    I'd be upset too, especially since for me to get anywhere in this town, I have to ride the city bus. If I'm not at the bus stop I wave to wait around for an hour for it to come back around again. I hope she does make it up to you in some fashion. Word of mouth can be the best advertising, and also the worst. As Stitchnripper said "Vent Worthy"

    As I am a very forgetful person I can feel bad for both of you. If it's not on my calendar then it simply doesn't exist longer than the time for someone to say it. I know I have forgotten stuff and truly don't want the other party to feel their activity wasn't worth my time or memory...sometimes I simply have forgotten, plain and simple.

    I feel bad you spent the time and energy to show up. Maybe she will give you a special treat in some manner. Next time, you might want to call the day before (and act sooo excited you can't wait) to double check the class and see if you need to bring anything special.

    Let's be glad though it was nothing serious that happened to her or her family...it could have been much worse news.

    I comportent agree with moonwork. I too am very forgetful. I have to write things down or forget about it. Reminders are always nice.
