Do you tolerate when a person is late?

Well, this is a complicated situation. When I say it is complicated, it is because there will be a group defending the "causes" of making that person being late, making the "late situation" legit, and others who will defend the person who is waiting, because this person made everything to be there on time. Do you think you can tolerate people being late on you? If so, how long would you wait? If not, what do you do?

If the reason is good enough, then I might. Some responsible people will tell if they cannot make it on time. Some. But some also purposely come late.... Nah, I don't tolerate too. One of my piano student always come on time or early, once they have sudden family emergency and need to come late. I drag her time. One more of mine he always late when I have ask to come early. I ask why come late? "Sleep late, wake up late" geez. And always come late, show innocent faces, not practice. I don't drag his time. He ask why, well, I also show my innocent face saying "why should I?"

I know what you mean, @LovingMyBabies. That is why I don't tolerate it at all. People get used when you tolerate once and twice, and it gets to be the rule to them. When I have an appointment, I wait for 10 minutes, and that is all. =)
I understand what you are saying. I do not like to have to wait for a person that comes late to a meeting or to meet me for some reason, but, I do do it. I wait a certain amount of time if it is outside. If it is in my home then I am here and if the person comes late they do it.
