Not to mention the fact that it is RUDE.
Although in the big scheme of things; 30 minutes late is no big deal; it does show a complete and total lack of respect for your time.
I am sure you have plans too; need to be somewhere; and yes; there are times; I imagine; that you are waiting; tapping your foot.
It is a rude; self centered; and disrespectful thing to do repeateadly with NO phone call; BUT unless it is written out on your order; then no; there is nothing you can do.
Just make your plans KNOWING he is going to be late.
If it gets to be an hour.......two hours...... then I would get your papers modified.
Otherwise you will have to live with a NCP that thinks you have nothing better to do but to sit around and wait on them.
And gee; could ya tell.........? I have issues with this very problem.
The worse is a Saturday morning when he is due to pick him up at 11:00. My day is PLANNED; a weekend without the child; and then I am waiting; keys in hand for him to arrive; 30m; 45m; or even an hour late......
I most likely wouldn't have started a thread about it; I've learned to live with it; and plan accordingly; however; my accpetance of it; makes it no less annoying.
