On being late but also a week early

Me: (out of breath) “Good morning, name’s Jesska, I’m so sorry I’m late! (Draws breath) I got lost on the way…. Should I make a new appointment? (Breathes)”

Secretary: (blank look) “tell me who you are again”

Me: “Jesska”

Secretary: (Alternately clicking away at the computer and flicking through the appointment book) “…but you don’t have an appointment today! You’re not due until next week…”

Me: “Oh. Well. Then I suppose I’ll see you next week then. I’ll even try not to get lost!”

Secretary: “Nah, seeing as you’re here, you might as well stay. It was just a checkup, we’ll fit you in. Not a problem.”
