Client: We want to hire you! Can we meet to discuss the project?
Me: Great! If you want to meet I can do Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday morning or Friday afternoon.
Client: OK, let’s say Monday afternoon.
Me: I’m afraid I’m not available on Monday. Would Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday morning or Friday afternoon work?
Client: Oh, sorry, my bad. Tuesday morning then?
Me: Sorry again, I won’t be available until the afternoon on Tuesday. Can you tell me when you have one hour available for our meeting next week?
Client: Let’s see, I’m free Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning but that won’t work. Too bad our calendars don’t match …
Me: …Tell you what. I’ll reschedule some things so we can meet Wednesday at 9:30.
Client: Oh, great! If it’s not too much trouble!
Me: No problem at all.
