Are you a punctual person or a laid back one?

I have a friend of mine who is very laid back. If we have to meet at 11am he will most probably reach the venue around 2pm or beyond that. I am somebody who is quite punctual and infact many a times reach before time. I believe that it all depends upon our priorities. If we have a priority towards something or someone, it will be reflected through our actions and our punctuality. Moreover, some people are laid back yet are able to do everything on time. Both aspects exist yet I feel it's about the value you have and the priorities you have set in your lives that guide your actions. What do you think?

I am a laid back person (at least according to the usual definition of the term), however I am almost always punctual and when I'm not it's due to circumstances beyond my control. Being perpetually late is not a "relaxed personality" it is someone who is very disrespectful of others.

I cannot stand people who are not punctual. I have never been late to an appointment in my life. It's not a matter of priority, but good manners. If you know that you are not available by 11, you set another time. The time is the only good that you cannot buy and once is gone is gone.

Yeah you are right. If you think you will be late inform earlier or set timings for late only.

Unless I am delayed by traffic, I always try to get to my destination ten or fifteen minutes before the appointed time.

@shubhu3 I hate when someone says I will be there at a certain time and never show when they say they are going to. If there are going to be late at least call so we don't sit around all day anx wait I find that very rude.

I generally reach the venue on time or just a couple of minutes late not much. There's one friend of mine who always says that everybody will gather on a particular time for sure and herself gets late by an hour or so

I always try to be punctual, since time is very important to me; however, in my country being punctual is not very well rooted in the culture nor in the economic system

It depends. If it's an urgent matter to attend to, I will be there on schedule. I make an effort not to let others wait.
