a late reply...

ya know, there are some people who are "in demand" in a crisis situation. Sure, there may be someone more qualified, but someone one site might be able to handle it.

Did he call and beg off? Was the excuse plausible?

Give him a second try if it looks reasonable. If he just dis'd you, the dreaded 'no reply' is better.

I agree with AAAmanda, if you get the short shift there may be no future, but I disagree to cut him off after one screw up. Find out why. Another screw up means *excuses* or too much time on the job.But you Do deserve prior warning. Not sure he did so on your first date.
