I like to always be up to time whenever I fix an appointment or when I want to go out,this is a problem with some of my colleagues,I have had to leave them behind to meet me at the venue of occasions because of my time consciousness,how time conscious are you or do you enjoy getting late to occasions?

I do not enjoy being late for anything! It does happen on occasion, usually due to bus service or train service interruption! I have to accept it when it happens, but I do not like it and try to avoid being late at all costs!

yes i hate being late myself in fact i have it as a rule to always allow 1 hour 30 minutes to be on my way for whatever appointments i have depending on the distance and the usual traffic situation i have experienced with the route i am to travel,so i never really give lateness a chance,but i must agree that once in a while i have been late but not more than 10 minutes and i felt so bad about it but it still workjed out fine

I have been taking public transportation for the last twenty-three years! Once in a while I will have a car and drive, but we have relied on bus and train for the most part. So at times, I have been an hour late! The other day, the meeting should have been over, and I was lucky that nobody else had showed up, so we had the meeting when I got there! I was trying not to get upset as the minutes ticked by, the train stopped at one station and announced that it was turning around! So there was an unplanned delay that cost me twelve minutes! That delay further delayed me, as when I did arrive at my station, the bus was gone and it was only once an hour that the bus arrived there. So I had to take another bus, and walk the rest of the way! And all that on Monday, of all days!

I am always early to appointments or occasions. I hate to be late. I feel if I'm late my whole day is messed up and I am behind on everything. And when I plan something I would like people to show up on time. It irrates the heck out of me if they don't. I have figured out the ones who are late all the time and tell them an earlier time. Then they will be on time for the occasion....lol..There's always away around things.

yes its not a good habit to be late for appointments ,and besides been early helps you to relax and prepare yourself for the appointment,it keeps you in the right frame of mind as you are already accustomed to the enviroment.just like me i hate people who like to go late at all times though i agree that sometimes you just cant afford not to be late but it should not be an habit.

I am very time conscious too. I cannot stand to be late for things or be pressed for time. It makes me very nervous to be in a hurry for something or only have a little bit of time to do what I need to do just because of having to wait on someone else. I leave without them too because they know to be here early or on time.
