I had a major client interview scheduled for today with a very sr client for potential job- it has taken forever to book. An hour before the meeting my Internet went out. I live in a remote area so I don’t have cell service (my husband was out running errands so no car to drive anywhere). I missed the interview and had to followup when it got back on. We rescheduled for wed but I’m pretty horrified. Sent apologies with weak explanation of Internet. How to handle when we finally speak?

I just made the switch to my new firm about 3 months ago and the partner and I have not gotten along. I’m a second year in lit, and most of his associates are more senior so he expects us to run point but during the interview I told him I still need a little mentoring.
