Once upon a time there was a girl who decided she wanted to be self employed, so after a lot of soul searching and evaluating her life, she happened to think that a career as a massage therapist, would be perfect for her. She put her all into doing the training and after a lot of blood sweat and tears, she passed her course.
A few years down the line, she had figured out how to run a business and became confident in the job that she was doing, and it got to the point where she enjoyed meeting new people. She worked unbelievably hard to meet her customers demands, working long hours, so people could access the service for last minute appointments. She always did her best to provide a high quality massage treatment to her regulars and new clients alike. She felt it was tiring at times working in such a physically demanding job, but at the same time very rewarding,as helping people was what has floated her boat and her main aim was to reach all the good people in Manchester,as best as she possibly could to help relieve their aches and pains, and reduce their stress levels.
One day a client booked in for a massage at 8am, so despite working long hours the day before, the girl set her alarm clock for 6am, so she could get up, pack her lunch, drive to work and warm the room, all in preparation for her first appointment of the day. 8am came and no client turned up. As the time ticked on by no client came and it got to the point where the reality of the situation dawned on her. This was a No show.
I am probably not the only self employed person in the world, who this has happened to, but when it does happen, to an extent it does gut you, as a lot of the time you end up working all the hours that God sends, just so you can fit in all the people who rely on your service. The implications are you are working on trust that the person who books a massage and says they will turn up will actually turn up and at times,its simply a case that you end up not booking in other people, who would turn up for the appointment. This means that you end up losing out twice as you have a No Show on your hands and you have refused some one who would turn up.
SO IN CONCLUSION, IF YOU BOOK AN APPOINTMENT TO HAVE A MASSAGE, PLEASE TURN UP, OR IF YOU CANNOT MAKE IT FOR WHATEVER REASON,PLEASE LET ME KNOW.
