And then rescheduling again and then…you got it, cancelling! Wouldn’t I look like a jerk? Or if not a jerk, than someone who doesn’t have my act together? Or if not someone who doesn’t have my act together then definitely someone who was not very interested in meeting the person on the other end of the phone line?
