My appointed time has passed by

Dear Readers: Today’s Sound Off is about waiting even though you have an appointment:

“Dear Heloise: Since when is it OK to have an appointment at 10 a.m. and not get in until 11:30 a.m.? There are no emergencies for these people; they just seem to be overbooking. How do your readers feel about this?” — Liz V. in San Antonio

Liz, I understand your frustrations. I have friends who’ll wait no more than 15 minutes at an appointment, then leave. Readers, what do you do? — Heloise
