Describe a time that you missed an appointment You should say:
- When you missed
- Who you have an appointment with
- How did you feel about it
- And explain why you missed it
Recently, I missed the appointment due to my own negligence. Lucy is one of my best friends and we have known each other for almost ten years and we are on very good terms. We haven’t seen each other for several months because we’ve been busy recently. We made an appointment to have a lunch last month.
The night before, I set my alarm for 9 a.m. and went to sleep in peace. Maybe I was too tired, I slept like a dog. Unfortunately, when I woke up, it was past twelve o’clock the next day!. In a daze, I picked up my mobile phone and saw that Lucy had made many missed calls to me. At that time, I suddenly realized that I had missed the appointment because I slept late. After checking the alarm clock carefully, I found that I had set the 9AM alarm to 9pm. How stupid I am!
I quickly made a call to Lucy to say sorry. She told me that she had arrived at the restaurant and had been waiting for me for a long time. I sincerely apologized to her, but she was clearly still angry. I felt very upset that I missed the appointment because of my mistake, which made my friend very unhappy. This experience made me understand that if there is an important date, you need to prepare carefully in advance, and you should not bother others because of your carelessness. It’s very rude to break an appointment.
前一天晚上我定好早上九点的闹钟，于是安心的睡觉了。可能因为太累，那天我睡的非常好。当我醒来的 时候，已经是第二天中午十二点多了。我迷迷糊糊的拿起手机，看到lucy给我打了很多个未接电话。那时 候我突然意识到，我因为睡懒觉错过了这次的约会。仔细查看了闹钟之后，我发现因为自己粗心，把9AM 的闹钟设置两9pm,那时候我觉得自己愚蠢极了。
我赶紧打电话给lucy解释，她已经到了餐厅并且等了我很久。我真诚的向她道歉，但显然她还是很生气。 我感到非常懊恼，因为自己的失误错过了约会，让朋友很不愉快。这次经历让我明白了如果有重要的约会， 需要提前细心准备，不能因为自己的粗心给别人带来困扰。临时失约是很不礼貌的。
