    Why is it when you wait for someone to come they always come late?

    Today i have the great joy of waiting for sky to come and was told a time between 8am-3pm

    whats the betting they come at 3pm or even after

    Am i the only one who is always waiting right until the end time

    The only company who were quick was phoniex gas who came within half and hour!

    luckily when i get sky installed i got a call the night before saying 'he will be there between 12 & 1!' he showed up at 12:30, good eh!

    your not alone there my friend

    I have had a few occasions like this, where I had to take time off work waiting for couriers etc only for them not to appear.

    Really gets me mad and sends me up the walls.

    and this also annoys me that when we asked bt not to come until after 1pm as no one would be in they came at 10.30 am and left a note to tell us we werent in when they called!

    Me too, I always get a call from the engineer the night before indicating a shorter time slot :thumbsup:

    Best is when you wait in all day, they dont come and say they called.
    Like how i was in ALL day and no-one even knocked!

    Biggest problem here is communication, the chain is only as strong as the weakest link, and there is always a weak link when it comes to all kinds of utilities.

    You are not alone, and to be honest, I dont think we are ever going to see a company sort their act out. Maybe when it gets really tough and they are fighting for our money, someone will step up and really make a difference. Ill be waiting. . . ..

    yeah thats the problem they know that you will wait

    sky were meant to come on thurs but never showed up so better today

    A Sky engineer should call you about 8am & tell you what time they should arrive (normally within 2 hours i.e. between 12-2)

    Slightly off topic - but i'm a stickler for punctuality and hate people that arrive late!
    Once my ex gf was running so late for a date, when I called her she said she was 2 mins away then i heard the train ticket inspector then she admiited she was running 30 mins late. I just cancelled the date and went home. lol.

    any sign yet?

    Even worse is when they say they will be there at 8:30AM then call at 8:20 to say they are running a little late and will be there at 9AM and then proceed to waltz in at 11AM. WTF!

    plumber did that to me the other day!
