The reasons and importance of not missing appointments
There are many reasons in which you should not miss appointments. One being that you as a person at the very given point in time of making an appointment somewhere have officially given your word that you will be there at that given time, yes there are things that can happen before said appointment that would make you miss it or possibly reschedule or just that fact that it slipped your mind. In this instance which is the first time I have ever missed any type of appointment in any shape or form, I accidently lost my appointment slip and at the next meeting that I went to I asked Ms. Quinn when the appointment was scheduled for because I didn’t want to miss it because if you miss an appointment while you are in the army it is blown completely out of proportion and nobody wants to deal with the aftermath of missing an appointment because then you find yourself writing 1500 word essays and possible UCMJ action, and nobody wants any of that.
Superiors and peers alike see missing an appointment as a sign of “shit-bagary”, I’m not sure exactly why but everyone makes mistakes, some make more than others but you can’t help it sometime and it is because we are only human. This is the first appointment that I have ever missed and I don’t plan to miss another ever again. From here on out I will be sure to keep positive control over any and all appointment slips I may get and or have. Also I plan on making copies and keeping one on my door in my wallet and one in my uniform pocket to make sure that there is no possible chance of me ever missing and or forgetting and or losing a slip that will let me know if I may have an upcoming appointment.
I also plan on informing others the importance of keeping multiple copies of their appointment slips because I would not want any one to miss one either and have to do “ corrective – training “ for something as petty as accidentally forgetting to be at an appointment...
