    Default *vent* people popping in

    If someone called you at 8.50 and said they would pop in and bring some morning tea, you would expect them to have arrived by 10.50, right?
    Still waiting, everyone going stir crazy.

    Yep! It's getting close to lunchtime.

    Did you ask them what time they intend to drop in?

    Yeah for sure! I kind of expect someone to arrive withint 30-60mins of calling to say they are 'popping in' ...mind you I usually ask what time they expect to be here.

    Have you rang or txt them to see whats happening?

    I'd tell them to jam it. I don't have time to sit round waiting for them to turn up at their leisure.

    if they gave you a specific time frame or got in touch with you tell you they're running late that's fine, but saying they're gonna pop around and taking their sweet time? Forget it.
