I want to discuss about my frnd. He always comes late. When i ask him to meet me at a particular time, he always late half an hour or more. I reach before 5 to mins of the given time. I always say to him that pls come on time, but he do this thing again. I ask him y u r late, he has excuses like i stuck in traffic, etc. So i decided to teach him a lesson. When he ask me to come at a particular time, i always came late so he can realize the cost of time. Do u have this kind of frnd? Pls share.

there are people who are not aware of time..but if you do same thing its not be a good way of teaching him. Tell him/her honestly that you're annoyed of what he is doing. I am that kind as your friend too....lol but my bestfriend told me that being a late comer is not a good practice...worst I let her wait until I arrived but when she did the same thing to me, fro there I'd changed to a better.it will make commotion between us!, from there I'd changed to be better am not a late comer, no more. Same as the two of you...so be frank and tell your friend to change his/her attitude.

yes its a good way to speak directly, but first making him feel what others feel when he is late and then make him understnd what is he doing is not good is the best way, cheers.

Yes, I do have a frined who always come on time. But my friend realize that it was not a bad habi. She tries her very best now to come on time. If she is even a bit late, she will not tell us excuses but would apologize for being late.

Well, you did the right thing. You have to teach him a lesson on that. And when he asks you about it you can say "Do unto others what you would like other Do unto you". I do that too to some persons who does that to me also. At least they learned that i do not want to be waiting for a long time on a date.

LOL....if you were living in my country, I might think we have the same friend. You are luckier, my friend's lateness can extend to 1.5 hours sometimes. What I now do is try to meet this friend less often or tell him the appointment is one hour to one and a half hour earlier than the actual meeting. But then again, we are still good friends, and I see it as him testing and building up my patience. LOL....

I think I've ever encountered such thing. However, it's not everytime but still it is annoying.

Everyone has such friends. But you talk about friends. That's still okay. I have colleagues who have this habit. After a hard days work, when we leave office, we have a company bus that drops us to a centralized spot from where we can easily go to our respective homes. However we have a couple of colleagues who prefer to play snooker or billiards in the recreation room in the office after work hours and manage to keep the bus waiting, their common excuse being that they have some work left. We have managed to leave them in the office a couple of times, but its been over a year and their habits do not change. Now, I am not against them enjoying their time after work but not at the cost of 30-40 other people's precious time.
