    Default I'm asked to wait

    How long is it reasonable to be asked to wait outside on a busy street while a lady tells you she'll call you back?

    I'm cold and starting to get irritable.

    I was on time.
    Why isn't she, in her warm apartment?

    YOU still parked without a ticket?

    On a serious note if you don't want to wait then don't wait,i never did.

    As long as she likes, I would think. In this caper, the customer is always wrong.

    Perhaps she wants you to avoid meeting previous punter.
    10/15 minutes.
    Then try exploratory call / text.
    I never wait in the one spot, keep moving, circle the block, no response in half an hour, call again then move on.

    Not too bad if it is a house you are outside and you have a good discrete parking space.
    Worse if you are walking and you are left hanging around like the local burglar "casing the joint" [or looking like the local escort client waiting for an escort ]

    I have been asked a couple of times to wait 15 minutes — that I don't mind too much. I assume the previous client either arrived late or he is a bit slow to leave.

    Anything more that that and I'd think they were taking the pi$$

    I have been asked if I could move a 9pm appointment back to 10:30pm. This was by a lady who I had seen a good few times before and it was around 7pm when she asked me. OK, some may consider that to be somewhat unprofessional asking one client to move their appointment so as to accommodate another client but as we got on well together I didn't mind. I was not left standing around on the street and she really did make a fuss of me when I arrived at 10:30 on the dot

    I waited 16 minutes in the cold before getting grumpy.

    I walked off and she called. I said I was fed up waiting and too grumpy to visit but she talked me around and I'm glad she did. I'm back out in the cold now but happy
