Hi, I wasn't sure where to post my request for help because others topics didn't match to what I am looking for. So I just created new.

I am trying to read one raw manga even though I am still a beginner in japanese (I am way too impatient person) and I have encountered something that I just can’t translate. Normally I would just skip it or guess the meaning from the context, but that word appeared again and I am afraid that it will be repeating. I am talking about these two:

でだよ あんたもたアポなしで来た上顔見るなり殴るたどーゆーこと? おぼえて ねんだから.


Context: There are three persons - A, B and C. A is saying both sentences. B is the person, A is talking to. A and C were in A’s house discussing work, then B came and punched A. After C left, A asked B if he knew C (because C recognized him). B asked who is he talking about. And the first sentence is A’s answer. And after a while A asked B the second sentence.

So what does that アポなし mean? I guess it could be something like appointment, that A was complaining that B came to his home without previous appointment (B is A’s customer) but I am not sure.

I would be gateful for any suggestions.

Well, google translate says アポなし is 'without an appointment'
Pretty much the same as you guessed in EDICT
