I've trained as a volunteer member of a panel of Restorative Justice facilitators. Yesterday I wasted a good 3 hours going to town to meet a paid person to brief me on my first session. She didn't turn up & it's taken until this morning for her to bother to text me with an apology for the mix-up (no further explanation & a phone call would have been better). This has been compounded this morning by waiting (2 hours so far) for a pre-arranged phone call from another paid official about a seminar talk I'd volunteered to do. I try to be reasonable about people making mistakes but I think I may get angry for once. I'm remembering why I got fed up working with Local Authorities.
