How to deal with people always LATE?

I really hate it when people come in meetings late. But what if its your business client who's always late to arrive in appointments they themselves scheduled? Would you tell them? How?

Its easy to deal with such people if they are working under you. Just let them know the appointment an hour or half an hour earlier so that you don't have to wait for them. I hate to wait people and i never let people wait for me, so i can say whatever i want to when some people are late.

Well I guess if they're your business clients and you need their business that bad, you might just have to take it sitting down. But if it becomes a habitual thing, I think you should take a stand and confront the client. After all, he is not the only customer available and he could potentially cost you former customers due to the fact the since he is late, he ruins your entire schedule for the day. But if he has a good enough reason, i guess you should just let it go, he might've been having a bad day. Maybe, you should cut him some slack.
