So, I showed up 30 minutes early for my dentist appointment today. This is not unusual for me, I am a stickler for time. I am always at least 15 minutes early for everything in my life. Sometimes this is an annoying quality. I get myself very stressed out that I will be late, and then I end up arriving way to early.
I believe this is due to the fact that I have had a career, where time is essential in success. I must be at the salon at least 15 minutes before my shift starts, so that I can set up and be ready for my first appointment. And, my entire day runs on a time schedule. If I do not stay on time, it ruins my day. Clients who show up on time for their appointment, deserve to be taken on time.
Because my own job is like this, I understand that when I have an appointment anywhere, I show up at the right time, and I would NEVER just ” no show” for them. I also understand and assume that, like me, their livelihood depends on me showing up. I am familiar with the consequences of when 1 person shows up late, it becomes a ripple effect throughout the rest of the work day.
And, maybe some people think it’s a bit extreme to show up as early as I do,However, it does allow plenty of time to read the newest edition of People before getting your teeth cleaned.
