Did my actions constitute a cancellation making me liable? Last night, I had an appointment at 8:00 PM. I arrived and checked in at 7:50 PM. At 8:15 PM, I got tired of waiting and left. When I informed the receptionist of this, she offered no information as to estimated further waiting time. Nor did she offer to reschedule. The provider insists I "pay for the appointment time" ($130), presumably as a cancellation fee. Please note: The person I had the appointment with was the "no-show". I was on time (in fact, early). Under Australian Consumer Law - how long am I expected to wait for the professional? Had I been late, they would have been well justified in requesting this fee. Thanks for any help.
