Keeping a waitlist is smart. Continuing to cost a late cancellation price doesn’t; the observe feels alienating to those that assist your enterprise.

Distracting and exhausting to listen to the precise reporter and interview. They even have their “banner” on the underside proper of the display screen blocking sports activities scores.
