Normally i will be earlier at everywhere i wanna go.. Because i dun like to let ple wait for me, and maybe also, i'm used to waiting too.. so reaching early to a place is very common for me.. I will always time myself for the whole journey including jams, and whether it's peak hr when ple go work or after work.. From there, i will judge the timing and than set off accordingly ^_^

I really do not like to make other people wait on and for me so I tend to be early rather than on time or late. I just make myself be ready ahead of time.

I am in the exact opposite I always get everywhere early, likes miles too early! I am too reliable if that can happen? Whenever I go somewhere for the first time and I am not sure where to go, I allow extra extra time to get there so I don't panic. Even when I meet friends I will turn up twenty minutes early, I hate letting people down or making them hang around. But I do get disappointed when others turn up late for me!

I am almost always on time and you can usually set your watch by me. I hate being late and get stressed even when I am going to be only a minute or two late. I like to be early. Lately, though, I've found that I've gotten a little loose in regards to being on time, especially for social things like church or family meetings. I guess I should take advantage of people who are close to me.

I used to be late all the time when I was younger but as I am getting older I am starting to understand the importance of being on time for my commitments. I get up in the morning at 7 in the morning to get to work by 9. I could probably sleep until 730 or 745 but I want to make sure that I get to work on time so I take that extra time for traffic or whatever.

Ok, no offense! Please don't take this as an attack on you for being late to places. This is just how I feel about it! I am always on time. On the rare occasions that I am running late, I will call ahead and give someone a heads up with all apologies. And, typically, if I am late, it is usually someone else's fault. Either the person I am arriving with got a late start which made me late. Or, if I am on my way to work, it is a traffic situation like construction, an accident or just a jam. Here is why I am always on time. I feel it is rude, and insult and disrespectful to be late. You are wasting someone else's time with your tardiness. It is like saying you and your time is more important than someone or everyone else's time. Again, please don't take offense to that. You asked me for honesty and that is what I gave!

Yes, whenever I can , I really tried my best to be on time. But it is so disappointing that you are doing your part and others are not. Even at work, for example. They would say that the speaker will arrive at this time then he will arrive 10-20 mins after. When I applied for dsl, they say that it would be activated 3 days , but it took a week.

yes. well okay honestly speaking, im on time about 95% of the time. i hate being late, i do not want people to wait for me cause i dont like to hear them saying i do not value their time. even if i am only meeting with friends, i see to it that i am not late, its okay for me to wait a it for them and would be impatient if they havent showed up about 30 minutes of waiting. i get on time cause i leave early... and give allowance to my travel time.

Most of the time I arrive on time because being late is a bad habit. As it will waste other's time. This is why I will be unhappy if other is late. But I did try to be late in the past. That's when I dated with my boyfriend and now he is already my husband

I hate being late for things so I try to always be on time. I have been late a few times but it wasn't my fault. I like to get to places early and make sure I get there on time. I try to make time to leave early and avoid the things that would make me late.

okay I hate to be late, and try to be on time, but sometimes I found that I was late and I had to find out what the reason was, so I found out that it was timing, figuring out how long it will take you to get ready and get there, so let's say I think it should take 1 hour, to get there, I make sure I leave at least 1 hr and 20 minutes earlier from my house, If I think it will take 1 hour just to get ready I make sure I give myself two hours, and if I have time left over I will relax before I go.

I always arrive early for appointments, I can't stand to be late. I think it is rude. When I met my husband he was always late for everything. I honestly didn't know how he got himself to work on time. I was very impressed that on our wedding day he actually got us to the chapel early. He hates when he gets to the doctors earlier, and they make you wait.

I always make the effort to be on time. I think it is only curtious to do so. I hate it when people are really late when they say they will be on time, for sure. My sister is the worst. When we make a family dinner we always tell her the dinner will be an hour sooner than we plan it so that she can maybe be on time. But she has gotten to know that we do this and is now really really late. I think it is rude for a person to not make that effort. I think it shows they don't care about others feelings, that they aren't important enough to them to be on time.
