Appointment reminders

When I schedule appointments, I always ask, “Please don’t call me the day before, to remind me.”

Sure enough, some receptionists ignore this request. At the time of their lapse, I remind them again as politely as I can. Sometimes I don’t have patience with having to repeat my request, if say it is the third time they are calling about various appointments.

When I call to book the appointment, they will give me a time that is convenient for the office like 8 am. However, I usually request around 11 am. I don’t like sleeping in, I just have my own schedule. I suggest to anyone give them the time you want to be there, period.

How about you, do you even want to be reminded of your appointments the day before?

I always make a note of my appointment on my calendar and on my daytimer, and can't remember ever forgetting an appointment. But I don't mind them calling me, at least you know they are on the job. Reply

Too many people are completely irresponsible and cannot be bothered with remembering the fact that they made a commitment that they are supposed to honor.
Because the "normal" has become to completely disregard personal commitments, some companies have gone overboard in their desire to remind people an have thus violated specific instructions in the hopes of instilling compliance.
This does not say much about their attitude regarding human behavior but does make a blatant statement about the "average" human behavior.
Perhaps if enough of actually do what we say we will do this practice will end.
