I am a PhD student in US but my mother language is not English. I'm in the following situation and I wish to learn how I may respond it politely.
The situation is simple. I have an appointment with my professor today but for some reason my professor forgot about it. He just never shows up in his office. Now I am about to send him an email to ask for rescheduling our appointment some time later this week. However, I just don't know how I should start my email... I feel it would be very rude if I start with something like: "Sorry professor but you didn't show up so I have to send this email to reschedule our appointment with you."
But still, I wish to let him know that I made it to this appointment on time and this is not my fault....
Thank you for your advice!
Maybe it is not a good idea that try to point out this is his fault... But still, I got stack on how should I start my email. This is what I have so far:
I was wondering that could we reschedule our appointment some time later this week? For example Friday maybe?
But I still feel I should say something between "Good evening" and "I was wondering..." Any suggestions? Or should I just leave it as what I have so far?
Thank you guys!
