Hello everyone! so.. are you the habitual late.. or are you the kind who is always on time? I just thought maybe we can all share about being late or on time, i have this friend from highschool that ever since that time she is always late! and even now that we are working.. it is really still her habit to be always late. haha it has become funny now that we often tell her we asked you to come in an hour earlier because we know she will show up just about the same time as us. :D

I have a friend like that! She almost always gets caught up in something else when she is trying to get ready to go out. It is annoying for the rest of us because although we love our friend it is somewhat arrogant to keep other waiting most of the time. As for myself I do make the effort to be on time except for the odd mishap which has been beyond my control. My father on the other hand is generally hours early for everything and I mean hours; when he was still working he would turn up on the job when the building was still closed so he would sleep in his car while waiting for the boss to show up…Who does that? When my sister went on holiday with him I received a text from her that said. “Grrr…Thanks to Dad we’re four hours early for our train!” I laughed so hard when I read that I has tears in my eyes, the man is weird!

Why are you not commenting on the responses here? Are you too lazy or not very bright? If you comment on what your responders say you will be paid well...provided you say more than thanks. Are you even reading what we have to say? I hate being late and I hate being kept waiting when others are late. People who are always late are showing a total lack of respect.

I have a friend who not matter what is always late...she is late for work, to go out any where I spend so much time waiting for her that is not funny...now what I do now a days is show up late to pick her up but she is still late would you believe it? is so annoying that some times I just refuse to pick her up very often...to be late all the time to me is a lack of consideration for other peoples feelings.

I used to be late frequently, but my military husband broke me of that. Now, I'm nearly always early. I worked for one company for 20 years and was late only once. That definitely was not my fault. The police had closed the loop that I always took to get to work (the only way that I knew to get there) because there was a man on one of the overpasses threatening to jump. They routed us off but didn't tell us how top get around the blockade. I drove around in circles for a couple of hours. I even saw a city policeman once and asked him how to get to the Koger Center where our office was located, but he said he had no idea. This all happened before I had a cell phone. I finally was able to get back on the loop and got to work, 2 hours late. I wasn't the only one that was late. One girl gave up and went back home.

Hi!It is always good to arrive on time for appointments or for work. I see to it everyday that i report to work early so that i could be there before time. Nowadays its really hard to keep on time because there are traffic situations that are unpredictable.Considering this,I give myself 2 hours to get to the office. I leave home at six in the morning so i can be in the office before eight. When there is an eight o clock outside the office activities or meetings i even leave earlier. I also hate people who always come in late. I think i will follow your strategy for late people. I will ask them to come one hour earlier.

Not all the time I'm late but almost the time I come on time or early in the time we decided to meet. If I will be late I contact that I will not come on time.

Hmm.. it depends. If I dont like the activity I will go to then sometimes I am late, or when it is done early in the morning, often I arrive late because I am not a morning person. It is very hard for me to wake up early in the morning. I used to be always on time but I just ended up waiting for people, sometimes for hours.

mostly i am on time man. rarely i get late. i always wait someone because i came earlier than the person that i have been waiting for. in my opinion, discipline is for your self not for others. sometimes i get angry if the person who wants to meet with me is late. but if he give me a good and make sense reason, i will give him my forgiveness. keep on rockin'!!!

Well,like what you've written,it is habitual. People who were used to it can be called "habitual" and it's a bad habit. Good thing is,i don't have that habit. Sometimes when due to some occasion or hassles,i can be late but not an hour or so. There were times that i was late with some appointments with minutes but i make sure to call or text the person that i might be late within few minutes. But generally,i am always on time and i hate waiting..so,when i am dealing with someone and he/she is late without giving me notice..good for them,i don't have enough patience to wait

I always hate those who comes late. Why don't they adjust so that they could come early or on time! Well, I always see to it that I come 15 to 30 min early on schedule. We should always think of those who are waiting for us. It's such a shame to let them wait for us because we are irresponsible enough to come on time.

I have a good habit and I often arrive in advance. I am seldom late unless I have met some accidents. I don't want to waste others' time to wait for me. I love China

haha... I actually have a friend like that. Before we'd say "If you've arrived the classroom and -insert friend's name- is already there that means you're late" since she was the type who'd arrive at the exact moment the instructor comes or just minutes away when classes starts. As for me, I can be somewhere in between. There are times that I am on time or early and other times that I am not. What I notice though, when it comes to going to school or classes I always have to be early or on time. I'm almost always on the rush and look at my watch or cellphone for the time. But when it comes to other things, like meeting friends and stuff, I'm a bit relaxed and take my time that sometimes I ended up getting late or the last person to arrive.

Whenever there is an activity in whatever place, I never go to the activity being late. Some will be late because the lack of the sense of self discipline. To be punctual to a certain occasions build a trust to the people. When the people know that you are punctual they will trust you in the coming say. In my point of view, some people come late because they do not give importance or have a commitment in a certain agreement. There are also exceptions to this because others will come late due to some uncontrollable situations such as traffic, rains, and other event of which we cannot manipulate. I have experienced this kind of situation and to this I have nothing to do because this is not my own making.

Generally, I show up a couple or minutes early to things. I absolutely hate it when people are late to important functions, or when they keep me waiting for them to show up. Therefor, I would be a hypocrite if I was always late to things. Those are my 2 cents. Happy Mylotting!

I am neverlate for anything. I hate it when people are late. I think it is a show of disrespect when someone is late. If I can make sure I am on time for something so can the person I am to see. It is the only polite thing to do. If they can't think enough about my feelings than they don't care enough about others and only care about themselves. I have a sister that all of our lives she was late. Even as an adult with a family she was always late. At christmas over whatever the occassion, she was the last to get there. And never even close to being on time. We would tell her dinner would be at 4pm and she might show up by 6pm. So we got to where we would tell her dinner was 2 hours earlier than it actually was but that only worked for about a year and she caught on. We would always wait for her and her family and she knew it so she didn't make the effort to be on time. I think that is disrespectful of her but no one ever said anything for over 20 years. Then last year when she came to visit me for 5 weeks, we live far from each other, I told her this. I am now 54 and she is 55 years old so I figured it was time to tell her how I feel about it. She never knew it bothered me so much. I explained to her why it bothered me, that it showed me she didn't think enough of the rest of us to make it a priority to be on time. After I explained my reasons to her she totally understood and felt horrible. And she totally agreed with me, although she never saw it that way before. Since then she has talked to the rest of the family to find out I wasn't the only one who felt that way and she told everyone how sorry she was. She is now always on time for everything, including the most important people of her life, her family. Cheers and have a good day my friend, Chris .

I'm not on time and not late as well. I always come at least an hour or 30 minutes early. That's the reason I hate tardy people. Time for me is very valuable. I'm a very dynamic and active person. I hate being stuck somewhere immobile doing nothing and waiting for someone who's late. My friends and people close to me know that.

Wow 7 pages of comments left on your discussion that is great. The reason is because is such an easy discussion for people to answer. Everyone is either late or on time so everyone can participate. I hate the one line answers though to me its pointless dont even bother to respond if you cant say more then one sentence. Mylot doesnt want one short sentence as an answer. I try not to be late. Generally I am late no matter what I do though. Today I have to meet a friend at her house to follow her to this place we are going. I cannt be late today!!!
