RantMeeting cancelled... After waking up hours too early! Pin

So I'm on this project where I get a CSV file, translate it into some awful pre-XML "standard" file, put it in a SOAP service and give access to customers so they can import the standard file.
About six weeks ago I had a test at a customer and my software seemed to work fine (after some tweaking, because the importing application didn't adhere to the standard, hence "standard").
The problem is the CSV file, just an in-house file, generated in Microsoft Dynamics, that we've been waiting on for months WTF | :WTF:
So we have this two-weekly meeting where we discuss the project's progress and the past two meetings it's basically been "we fixed another field in the CSV file."
The meeting is at 09:00, it's a good hour drive, 01:30 with traffic jams, so that means I have to set an early alarm (a good two hours earlier than usual).

AND JUST NOW IT WAS CANCELLED BECAUSE THE CSV GUY HAS MADE ZERO PROGRESS! Mad | :mad:
He knew this yesterday, because if he didn't get the file at about 17:00, he's not going to have it on 09:00 the next day.
I was supposed to go with a business partner, but he was already on his way.
He decided to go anyway because he had some other meetings, but I don't.
Were this guy five minutes later (or my partner 5 minutes earlier) I'd have wasted an entire day at a customer where I had zero business WTF | :WTF:

So here's what I did in three months: learning a standard, implementing it, reading a file, parsing and transforming it, building a SOAP service, building a management module with UI, setting up a complete Azure and DevOps environment (everything brand new).
Here's what the other guy did in the same time: fix almost an entire CSV file with about 15 fields and cancel a meeting.

Hmmm | :| Mad | :mad: Frown | :( Sniff | :^) Sigh | :sigh: D'Oh! | :doh: Cry | :(( Dead | X| Unsure | :~ WTF | :WTF:
