Aaaaaaaaaggghh - The Scream Thread!

Have been teaching a boy from a nearby boarding school during the holidays. Originally he and guardian wanted 4x45min lessons (in 1 week!) but changed it to 3x1hrs instead. I stupidly didn't mention the 50p at the end of the 45 minute rate so our expectations about the final bill differed by £2.
I caved in of course but am mightily annoyed that she would stand her ground for the sake of £2 when they arrived 30 minutes late on Monday, 40 minutes late on Weds and 55 mins late today.
Will now go and laminate a sheet with 'KICK ME' in a very large font and pin it to my jumper.Grrr.

i was scheduled to do 5 accompaniments in 1 concert - more than originally expected and a couple at G2 level so not particularly demanding. In the light of this I texted them all to reduce my rate by £5. I go to the venue and 1 has called in sick and another has turned up with no piano part. Lesson learned !
