Would you be peeved?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Our house was scheduled to be appraised yesterday. They called last minute and rescheduled it for today. Well they never showed up and they never called either. I do understand that situations come up that make people change their plans, but a professional courtesy of a phone call takes what? 2 minutes tops?

On a positive note, my house is the cleanest it has been in a long time. But still I am a bit insulted at the treatment we have received. They initially contacted us when they merged with our mortgage company. This was not something we initiated.

I work in a realestate office and my broker ALWAYS calls even if he is going to be 2 minutes late to meeting people! that is VERY rude not to even call!

I worked in an appraisal office for 3 1/2 years, and that is simply not acceptable. Yes, you have every right to be upset. That is unprofessional to say the very least.

You have every right to be ticked off! I know that I would be very ticked off and with my temper I might phone them up and let them have it full throtle!

Would I be peeved? OOOOOOOOOO, you betcha! If there's one thing that burns my butt, it's people who are late or no-shows, and don't let me know. Plans can change, circumstances can change, anything can fall off the rails, it happens to all of us. But if you have made the effort to be ready for them, you are entitled to the simple courtesy of a phone call if there's a change in plans -- in as expeditious a manner as possible, to minimize the impact on your day. I'd be steaming

I am personally FED UP with ALL of these people who give you a 'window' of an appointment time and keep you chained to the house all day, like you have zero-else better to do with your time. The other day (on a day off), I had to have my recently-installed water heater inspected by the county. Mind you, on the day it was installed, I was in that 'window', and I don't know if it's my incredibly bad luck, but they ALWAYS seem to come at the END of the window. Anyway, my window was 7:30-3:30. In other words, ALL DAY. Sure enough, she shows up at 3:00. And the stupid thing did not pass inspection. So now, I have to take ANOTHER day off for the installation company to make the necessary adjustments. ("You have a 9-11 a.m. window." Hah!) And ANOTHER day off to have it reinspected. I could be boiling water for hot showers at this rate and invest less of my time. Sheesh!

I HATE it when that happens. I remember we were having problems with the cable internet so we called the company and they told us they would come between 10-4 and so I turned down an outing with my friends so this guy could come - he didnt come til 4:30pm!

I really hate it when people do that. Talk about inconsiderate. If I were you, when they call back to reschedule, give them a window: "Well, I waited all day Saturday, and you didn't show up, so now I'm only available on Tuesday from 7:30 to 8:00 a.m.."

I spent most of my life in southeastern Michigan and service people, and people in general, were very punctual. I now live in the backwoods of Tennessee and all of that has changed. Living rurally can be hellaish here. NO ONE shows up on time or calls back or provides any type of quality service. For example: We called TWO WEEKS ago to get an insurance appraisor to look at our roof damagae from a storm. After several calls and three broken appointments, he still has not showed up. It is one of the reasons we are seriously considering moving.

Argh, same here. And I'll say who it is, Time-Warner! Now, they say, "we don't know when they can come out since they work at night, but he'll call you 1/2 hour before getting there" so the last two times, 9:00 at night

Can you change appraisers?
post #17 of 20
I'd be upset too
post #18 of 20
I'd be extremely peeved.

As for the companies who give window times. I give them mine. 7:00AM to 9:00AM. And I do not negotiate. I can appreciate that they too are busy but so am I. I am not going to wait around for the better part of the day when I can do other things. Therefore, if they have to come round to my place, it's the first job for that day. And if no one shows up, I call the company and end up having a nice chat with the manager.

And don't even get me started if I encounter a rude and unhelpful tradesperson. It is the house I'm living in, therefore I have EVERY right to know what he/she is about to do. And I am the one paying.

Mary Anne that sucks!
post #20 of 20
Oh! and if someone is late for something for my sake.. I will ring every five minutes to see if they are on their way or arriving etc etc

I'm persistant and patience is NOT one of my virtues!
