Good morning,

Because the customer was promised an answer by Noon, it would be inappropriate to leave them hanging until after the meeting for an apology.

Also, you know what the customer wants, it would do little good to have the customer call back---you will need to contact the customer when you have the answer to their inquiry.

You failed to properly prioritize your schedule to accommodate a customer's request, and that is not a valid excuse to ask to be allowed to come to the meeting late.

The proper thing to do is to contact the customer, tell them that something has come up and that you will get back with them as soon as you can---providing another tentative time you will call by. The answer is 4.

I wish you well.

Because I help people here, like you, for a living---this is not a hobby for me, and I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX abiding by the honor system as regards XXXXX XXXXX I wish you and your family the best in your respective futures.
