I n every appointment that i have,i surely arrive 30 minutes before our meeting time.I experience last night to wait for almost two hours.Our meeting time is 7pm and she arrived around 8:30 pm.I entertain myself by playing games on my phone while waiting for her.

I always try to be on time for any appointments, unless I really couldn't make it by any accident matters. I do not like to be late, as it's not respectful to others too. I always try to be there 10-15 minutes before the meeting time. I've experienced waiting for people for about 2 hours too. When she came, she didn't apologize and didn't even explain why she's late, and perhaps she thought it's alright for a girl to be late? And, a whole group of people were waiting for her, so we have to change our plan just because of her. This is the worst I've experienced so far.

I'm always early because I don't like to be late in my schedule and I don't like other people to wait for me. I think I got that from my father. It's better to be always minutes earlier than late. Good day!

Hi des. You are right we should be early on our appointments and it should be a Christian time always.

All my life, I've been using the Christian time. In fact, I grew uo with it. We both know that.

I admit that sometimes I am late but its not my intention to come late, there's just happened unexpected.. But I am trying my best to come on time or earlier because its not a good attitude to come late when you made an appointment to someone else.. Well, I really hate when people keeps me waiting.. I just really hate to wait especially if theres no something that I could entertain myself.. I will just allow myself to wait that person for 30 minutes and if she/he don't arrived in the graceful time I've given then surely I'll live.. But if that person told me that he/she will be late for a certain time then I will wait her/him.. I just really hate people keeps me waiting especially if I am alone...

Hi dong! I always do my best to be on time when meeting someone or any appointment that I'm going to. Actually I'm 15-20 minutes earlier, most of the time. I don't like being late and I also don't like to wait, but sometimes I have no choice. And when I'm late, I have a valid reason for that. Thanks!

hah,someone said that women have the right to be late for appointments because they need time to make up.For me ,it's depend on.If i have a meeting appointment,i will arrive there on time;if i go to meet a friend familiar with, i consider it a relaxed appointment,maybe i will be late for five or ten minutes because of some trivial things.

I always make sure I'm on time with every appointments I make because I hate people who comes very late on our meeting time.Lately,I have adjusted to late appointments with my doctors.I make sure I will not wait for them for more than 4 hours.One or two can be.But if he keeps me waiting always I changed him for another doctor.There are plenty of good doctors why always wait for so long.

I am always on time. You were very patient to wait that long. If it was me waiting, I will leave after 30 minutes of waiting.

I make it a point to come on time. I think it it just a matter of respecting what you have both agreed. If it was 7 then why come later than 7? I admire people like you who are coming even before the time. I believe they are responsible kind of people. I hate latecomers. In a way I would say they are disrespectful of others. I mean each one of us just like me values time so much, so when wasted in waiting for latecomers I feel I'm in a way disrespected. So what I do not want others do unto me I do not do to others as well.

Hi dong! For official appointments I always try to arrive at least on time or before the scheduled time most especially if I am meeting VIPs or the Boss. When i call the meetings or set an appointment myself, I always try to be there ahead of time too. I really hate waiting and unlike you if i have an appointment and the other party is not around in 30 minutes or less, I tend to cancel or leave. I also try to be on time for my friends. In all cases, if i am delayed I try to call up. Not having a valid reason for being late is like an insult to the person who is kept waiting since it indicates lack of respect. But i am not saying i am never late. it has happened several times but mostly because of a valid reason.

I like to arrive about fifteen minutes early ,time to use the loo, brush hair make my self comfortable ect.Turning up flushed and out of breath is awful.

An appointment must be kept attended at the right time.I am more keen towards oppintments and would dispose my oppointed person as early as possible,so that they can get engaged somewhere.Also I will be in the right time for my given oppointments.And that shows you are sincere towards the meet..........About girls,you wait if she is worth enough and she mean more to you.Because ,if you are in love,it is worth waiting and is a pleasure to.

I always try my best to be on time or even earlier than the appointment. I'd rather be the one to wait than being waited for. I have been like that ever since. Being late is not in my vocabulary. If ever I come late, I sure have a big big reason about it.
