Looks like a few things need to be clear up. I’ve met Mr.Bilbo on Wednesday the 18th of December at 1.30pm. (not at 1pm, I’ve just re-read ours emails). He must have left at 4.45pm at the very latest. Its absolutely impossible it can be later then that. My house need to be “client free” by this time and not a minute later, but on Wednesdays only. On all other weekdays, its even earlier : at 3.35pm. If I could accept incalls until later time, I would not advertise such a limited incall hours.
So really appointment overrun a little more then one and a half hour, which is not uncommon. I did asked him, if he was pushed for time. When he said that he did not, we were happy to relax with extra social time, and why not: he was a pleasant guy to communicate with. Of course after about one hour initial chat, it will be only fair to allow one and half hour of action, he paid for. (with other brakes in between for the wine and siggy for me and numerous Red Bulls for Mr. Bilbao, as he need it, lol).
Ok, Mr. Bilbo did exaggerated a bit, and applied some poetic licence, but its not exactly uncommon in reviews. ;-)
Regarding Corus Boy post. Back in 2004 I could take incalls right later in the evening, but since then my circumstances changed.
