Everyone has a digital clock!
By: Anonymous Fleet Manager
I know everyone has a digital clock now (on your phone, on your PC, in your car, etc.) but just in case you don’t know how to use the old-fashioned type – When the big hand is on 6 and the little hand in on 2 its 2:30!
I wonder why everybody’s time is more important than mine. If we have a meeting scheduled – SHOW UP ON TIME. That also means for online meetings – oh by the way your device will prompt you.
I’ve even had staff ask me to remind them about a scheduled appointment. Here’s an idea – you remind me to remind you!
It’s not only good business practice and good manners but a reflection of your time management skills. I'm over it – show up on time or don’t bother showing up!!!
To stop our Anonymous Fleet Manager (AFM) blowing a gasket, we created Internal Combustion, a monthly column for fleet-related rants that lets him blow off some steam. Got a fleet gripe you'd like to get his opinion on? Email the editor who will pass it on to AFM... when he's in a good enough mood, that is.
