Please find below a letter which is an explanation, as I have no surname, address or telephone number for Sally I cannot get it to her.
I only hope she reads the letters page.
Sally – we had an appointment to talk about you coming to work with me. You arrived on time, smart and ready.
When the bell rang, I was dozing, thinking I had another two hours before you came.
I was woken by the bell and needed to go to the loo so I went to see who was disturbing me – glancing at the clock as I went, 1.05pm, who could this be?
I couldn’t understand why you had come two hours early and was quite unkind to you: ‘we had an appointment at 3pm, come then’ and then ran to the loo.
When I got back to my room I saw it was 2pm and read the paper I had scribbled the time and date on and found it had said it was 2pm.
I had transferred this to my diary as 3pm, hence my annoyance when I thought you had come early, I had also not seen the hands of the clock correctly in my half-asleep state.
I am so sorry for my bad behaviour and would like your forgiveness please.
You were right and I, in my doziness, was totally wrong.
I hope you read this as it is the only way I have of trying to apologise to you.
