Do you like to wait?
5 Feb 07
Without a doubt waiting for someone to show up can be rather irritating. I've had people do this to me on numerous occasions before & it ended up me not wanting to go out with them ever again.. Especially when they have done it to me more than once.. And also.. Because I began to feel like I couldn't rely on them.. I don't know sometimes I feel like I have zero tolerance for people who make me wait for extended periods of time. To me if you are meeting someone you should at least be there on time or a little bit early just so you won't keep the person waiting. Or as well.. If you are going to be late I think a person should at least call to let the person know. To me if a person isn't willing to do this when they know they will be a little late.. In my opinion shows complete disregard for other people's time, as well as there feelings in general as well. I know that personally.. I dislike when someone shows up a half n hour later & then comes up with a really poor excuse.. And didn't even end up even calling to let me know that they we're going to be late.. I find that rather disrespectful to do to someone.. I know that if I am meeting someone for coffee or even to discuss a personal matter or even for an appointment.. That I put that at the top of my list of priorities or responsibilities.. And I won't just allow the person to wait.. I know that if I have ever been running late I will call the person & apologize on my behalf.. Most people will be extremely grateful that you we're willing to let them know instead of just keeping them waiting there for you to show up.. In conclusion.. I dislike having to wait for people for a long period of time.. And the only time I will be willing to forgive someone is if they we're willing to call me in advance to inform me of why they are are running late.. And if they did end up as well having a good excuse to.. I think it's sad when people have to lie to someone they trust or someone whom they are close to.. Instead of telling them the truth.. I think honesty is the best policy! And if someone is to lie about why they truly we're late.. Those type of people aren't ones I want to keep as apart of my life for long. And in my opinion.. The person you are meeting should have at least the decency to call & inform you that they would be unable to meet you or that they would be running late.. It's only polite to do so & shows you have good manners in the long run.. Thanks for allowing me to share! xx

My best friend was always late, he's better now. I would tell him to meet me BEFORE I knew i was going to be there! Then he would still be late, but not as late. I hate people who always answer their phone and talk like you don't even exist! What's with that. I would tell him how I feel about that.

I don't to like to wait either. It's very irritating. I can't understand why people don't come in time after fixing a particular time. I know the feelings when you have to wait, thats why I never make someone wait. If i don't tolarate taht why should other do that for me.

I'm always early. If I tell someone I'll meet them somewhere at 3pm, then I'm there at 2:45 just to make sure, because I HATE waiting, and I hate when people are late, so when I have to meet someone, I'm early.. just to make sure.

I am a very patient person, so waiting is not a problem for me. It does get into my nerves when someone's late for an hour or two, or especially when I'm in a hurry to do something or run an errand. My patience is an advantage to, because I'm into a long distance relationship.
