Oh come on now.

This arena thing is really starting to irritate me. Marge agreed to have Mr. F out to fix the arena. This is his business, and he said he'd call me when he knew what his schedule was. Four days later I called him, and he seemed a bit irritated that I called to ask him what was going on. He said he still didn't know when he could make it out.

Seriously? How can you not know? Don't you schedule your clients? He told me that it would probably be this week. This week only has two more days in it. So, since I didn't hear from him today I'm assuming it won't be tomorrow. If I don't hear from him tomorrow I'll assume that it won't be Friday. He must work on weekends, because he originally told me that he could do it last weekend, and that didn't work out so well, now did it?

So, again, I'm waiting for someone to do something that they said they'd do. And I'm waiting for a phone call. I'm kind of a pushy person (okay, I'm definitely a pushy person) so if I don't hear from him by Saturday I'm going to call again.

Because I can be a real pain in the ass when I need to be. Just ask Craig. Or Susan...or Marge...

I hate it when people don't run their businesses like businesses, but such is the horse world, isn't it? I've known too many trainers and vets and farriers who thought nothing of showing up late or standing me up completely without so much as a phone call. Drives me nuts!

I think in the times we live in, people just seem to be ruder than they were years ago, when everyone had manners and seemed to care about what other people thought of them.
I've seen so many businesses that I can't believe are still operating and doing well. Some are so obnoxious I can't believe they are still in business. I guess people are getting used to being treated unfairly.
