Default Late or a No-Show?

I had an interview scheduled at 12:30 yesterday with a parent; in the morning, though, she emailed to reschedule. We moved it to 11:00 today. 25 after, no word from the parent, and she's still not here...

I usually tell people in my communications with them about the interview time that I give them a 15 minute window. If they are later than 15 minutes without communication, the interview is off.

If they arrive MORE than 15 minutes early, they need to wait.

I am guessing that if she hasn't at least contacted you yet, she is a no show.

I'm sorry.

That's what I figured. I'm not going to wait around all day for her. Should I send her an email asking why she didn't come, or wait for her to contact me? I'm leaning towards waiting. I'm not so sure I even want her as a client now - I'm getting pretty irritated between the last-minute rescheduling and not showing up today.

I would not contact her. The first impression definitely says a lot and I think she may be showing you her true colors.

If she does contact you, she best have a really good reason for no showing you. I understand that things happen but in this day and age of electronic everything communicating is so simple that there really is no valid excuse.

I'd go about my day and know you probably dodged a bullet.

I wouldn't contact her either. If someone is so disrespectful as to no-show I don't give a second chance.
