I can't remember the last time I just plain didn't show up.

Today, I did it — and I did it big.

A room of worthy folks, willing to hear my plea. They were counting on me for entertainment and enlightenment.

And I didn't show. My calendar had the time wrong, but I knew — at one point — full well what time the meeting was.

What the hell happened?
It was simply a lack of attention to detail. I live by my calendar. And I entered the time wrong.

And, now, it's a horrifying lack of etiquette. I am so embarrassed.

Wasting one's own time is a lost opportunity. Wasting someone else's time is a crime.

Now, I'm just sorry about it.
