I'm time conscious and afraid to be reprimanded in coming late. But I don't know why oftentimes I came late in my appointments. Weird isn't it? How about you?

Haha. If you live here in the Philippines then you would have known of the thing we call Flpino time. So no, I'm definitely not punctual when it's an appointment set by friends. But if it's something important and formal, I try to be as punctual as I can. ^_^

Ha ha ha, I'm a Filipino. Actually, I was corrected by a foreigner. He said to me it's not Filipino time, it's bad time.

I sometimes go to my appointments punctual and early , but some times no and the reason maybe is no one will take good care of my niece , i am sick , not in a good mode , and i have my period it irritates me especially if i have a pain of my stomach. it is so difficult to move, so if this happen ill just cancel the appointment and tell what happen on the next day that we will meet.

I try to be punctual at all my appointments. If it's regular appointments, I tend to come 5-10 minutes before, just in the nick of time, or 5-10 minutes after. For important matters, I try arrive at least 30 minutes early. There were times when my friends and I had engagements in one of our friend's house. I always come early and they arrive 1-3 hours later than I did. I feel all right to come on time but I feel bad that the whole engagement had to be extended until late night because they were late. I don't like late nights so I leave early. It's just unfair. I respect their time but they don't respect mine. This happened several times. Later on, I don't come on time and go 30 minutes later than I usually do.

I admit, I have anger punctuality, and it seems disrespectful to the person you expect if late. I always at meetings, arrive early. Waiting for people who are late, but of course I lose my patience, especially if you do not have the good sense to at least apologize.

No, not always. I do try to be punctual, but sometimes I can't help being late. For instance, my youngest had a doctor's appointment yesterday. We left early enough, or so I thought. However, traffic was heavy and we were delayed. Fortunately it wasn't by much so we were able to keep his appointment as planned. If we had been any later it probably would have gotten rescheduled for another day. Happy mylotting!

I want to be punctual in everything that I do. However, if you always are here in the Philippines, all you'll get is waiting and waiting and waiting. That's why I choose to not be punctual. :)

With work, I am like that. But with outings and meetings with friends, I usually arrive early. it could be because I feel excited going out with my friends and feels afraid to be left out. However, with work, I think I'm not so happy with what awaits me in my job. Hahaha.
