Gold - I once had a prospect tell me he couldnt meet today urgent internal meeting. Next day the CEO of the company rings me and says "yeah about the meeting we had to let XXXX go, he was stealing computers and selling on ebay" my first thought was of Creed from the Office.

Need to drop a hot one? Shoot on down to the local bodega and ask to use the restroom.

I once got a "my dog ate my laptop" and they later showed it while on video call. These people are the best - they KNOW we'll laugh at it. I love it when prospects are funny.

I would have laughed as well. but hey, if he or she sent you that message it means you really caught his or her attention!!

IT happens, and a lot will simply ghost you. I find it easier to get a 100% show rate by calling on the same day in the morning or an hour before the meeting starts. And it makes rescheduling easier on everyone's part if it came down to doing that.
