    Question What " gets another appointment"means?

    hello, I am translating a blog and the author said at the end:

    "Lets hope that he gets another appointment"

    What does he mean?


    If you can tell me the meaning in spanish would be great!! In English would be a wonderful advice!

    many thanks

    It may refer to an appointment with a woman.

    Not a teacher.

    It could mean any type of appointment. It is not necessarily with a woman. It could be a an appointment with a doctor, dentist, etc. It could be a political appointment. Is there any context?

    "Let's hope that he gets another appointment"
    It may (or may not) also refer to getting another job. Whether it is a job or meeting up with a woman, nobody, I am afraid, will be able to say for sure - the context is needed.

    This (the job) sounds likely to me; perhaps s/he lost her job because of a principled stand that the blogger approves of. But if it's in a blog you could easily provide a full context - and any accurate answer can only come from a knowledge of the context.
