Today, I was supposed to see an apartment. 30 minutes after I was to meet the owner, she still hadn't shown. I called her. When I got no response, I was annoyed and kept calling. Finally, she answered, said, "I'm in the hospital with my father. He just died. Please stop calling me," and hung up. FML

thats not really a fml, how were you supposed to know? most people would do the same if someone didn't show when they were supposed to. Don't feel bad!

She was very rude considering you had no idea what had happened and she was still the one breaking her appointment without notification.

I can see why she'd be upset, but the least she could've done is call u and let u know she couldn't make it today... That sucks OP

Yeah, exactly. The owner of the house should've contacted OP to tell him that she couldn't make it.

Not your fault OP, even though death is tragic. She could have at least texted you, if not call.

OP is female.

She didn't know he died.

You presume that every adult you meet is rational? What world do you live in?

I wonder if he had a nice apartment...

That's hilarious. But then again that's probably why all of my comments get thumbed down.

So, are you rescheduling!

Please, how was he to know? She should have rescheduled if her father was THAT ill

Plus, a lot of people don't like to leave messages, because a lot of people don't listen to them/answer them.

Who wouldn't be annoyed if this happened ?! When you've been waiting somewhere for over 30 minutes you call ONCE and leave a "Detailed Message" I think not . you call mutiple times cause your so pissed .

Right. You call once. Then wait there for god knows how long until they finally listen to the message, if they even do that and call you back. That leaves you waiting there because you don't know where they are, and are afraid that if you get too fed up and leave they will show up. Yeah no. You keep calling until they answer and you know what the heck is going on. And the person should of called the OP to tell them that their father had died and told them they needed to reschedule.

I agree that it's an embarassing situation for you, but there really was no way that you could know...

What a bitch.

OP? yeah. she is a one.

It's not OPs fault, how was she supposed to know the father died?

That's terrible for her, but still... if she KNEW that she had an appointment with you, why would she ignore your calls? It would have saved you time and saved her the irritation if she'd just picked up the phone the first time and said, "Sorry, not today."

#6 It's not harrassment; the OP did have an appointment with her. Are you honestly telling me you'd only leave ONE message and then just sit there waiting? FHL...she's at her father's deathbed and she doesn't turn off her phone? I can only guess that maybe she had some other relatives needing to get in touch.
