    Re: neither / nor

    Welcome to the forum.

    a) is grammatical though unlikely. Why don't you tell the person where you do want to meet them?
    b) is not correct. It's a double negative. You used "You didn't tell us" with "neither/nor". You can say either:

    - You informed us of your absence neither by phone nor by email.
    or
    - You did not inform us of your absence either by phone or by email.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
