One of my worst experiences for timekeeping was with an EE girl from an agency. Can't remember the name of the agency but it was a few years ago as I very rarely do outcalls to my hotel amymore - crap timekeeping being one of the reasons I don't.
Anyway I was staying at the hotel on Bayswater Road that they've been knocking about for the past few years (between Queensway and Lancaster Gate, can't remember the name). There is another virtually next door.
She hadn't arrived after 20 minutes at which point I phoned the agency. Rather than being apologetic the first thing the bloody woman said was 'why have you taken so long to phone?' Doubtless if I'd have phoned after 10 minutes she would have said something like 'give her chance!'
She then told me she was on her way. Another 20 minutes, another phone call and she was still on her way. Nowdays that would be booking cancelled but I was more naive then.
The girl eventually arrived about an hour and fifteeen to an hour and a half late, the excuse being that she had gone to the hotel next door. I think I could have travelled right across London and back in that time!
I recall the girl, who had looked stunning in her pics wasn't nearly as attractive as they had made her appear, and as you might expect the service was crap!
I also recall another girl being 20 minutes late to this same hotel. She was the one I've written about various times before on Prossynet as I saw her through the window strolling casually down the street eating a bloody bag of crisps as though she was 20 minutes early!
Must have been something about that hotel!
