I always maintain time punctuality which has been my habit from school days.I see that i reach a place little earlier than to hurry up and rush in last hours.If am 10 minutes late too i will have a tensed feeling and in order to avoid this i keep up my time.I have some friends who really make a mess with time keeping specially when we plan for a movie and end up in going late. Do you have time punctuality?How do you feel if you reach a place very late than expected?How do you tackle people who are waiting quite a long time because you have turned late there?

Well Suba dear, i am in bad habit of being Punctual or 5-10 mins b4 time. May be 2 reasons 1)my father is really punctual and want to honor commitment. he is never late 2)my schooling was done at boarding school of public colleges, some sort of army college u say and we had to follow srtrict routine of wake up, exercice, school, break, school, break, lunch, study, prayers, tea, sports, study, common romm and then lights off, LOL well ask me how i feel when i reach ontime at occasions and no one else is there, cau u imagine that, LOL take caree

Dear subathra I am not at all punctual in time .. though I try hard to become punctual .. but at the last moment things goes wrong. I have tried many times to be punctual .. my family is sometimes upset with my being late many times but I can't help it .. It happens .. it's a fast life and everything just keeps on moving so fast .. and time simply keeps on moving. I am simply not able to maintain my time .. Now I am trying some steps to make a proper schedule so that all things will come in manner and in this way I will maintain my time well.

Hi subathra.... I think this is a good discussion. Looking at the last response of 2 months ago, I think I'd like to freshen up this discussion of yours. Allow me... :) Well.. I'm living in Jakarta. The city of HEAVY jam. You can travel from one place to another place with the distance less than 10 km, but you will need almost 1 hour to arrive. Hahaha.... :) Time is very important here, that's why I TRY to be punctual, even though it's so difficult to keep the punctuality here in Jakarta. I prefer to arrive earlier and wait for people to come rather than to be waited. If I was being awaited for others, it makes a guilt feelings... :) even though I arrive in time. So, I'd better wait for the people I'll meet. So far by experiences, I manage to do it, unless there are some sudden circumstances like "mass demonstration" (Jakarta has a lot of this kind of event recently... :) ) Thanks !

no I am pretty dreadful at being on time. But I will never be really late either, its usually a matter of a few minutes for me. I think it is conditioning! When we are young we learn about stuff like timekeeping and my parents were always very late and disorganized so I blame them!!

i like to be punctual.and i will be very annoyed if someone is not on time.it makes me feel that i am not important,in some way.so i always want to be punctual myself.if something happened that i cant get there on time,i will call my friends before and explain it.i will feel very sorry if i keep others wait,no matter how long.

I am generally 5 minutes early to a place. Like if I have to reach at 10 o'clcok to a place I am generally at 9.55 on the place to avoid any rush and I hate when people abuse me for anything wrong. It's always better to be right from your side and enjoy the benefits of punctual man . I'm a punctual man and I admire people who care for time.

A few minutes early for the most part. I think it's because my father always ran late when I was growing up, and he used to keep us all endlessly waiting, so I find that to be very frustrating, so I'm very conscious of the time when I need to be somewhere. Some people are just busy and run late but for others it's a power trip, and it can be really disrespectful. THANK YOU FOR BEST RESPONSE.

I grew up with a mom that is known for being late for everything. the family had to start telling her events started a half hour earlier than they did, just so she wouldnt be too late. Unfortunately it has kindof stuck. I have a knack of going from sound asleep to out the door in about 5 minutes. I had to perfect that in order to not take over her place as the late one. For some reason I can make it to work on time,but anything else, forget it. I'm not that bad though, usually only about 5 10 minutes.

I am not that punctual. I will be late to school or college but was never late to office. I never feel tensed even when i am late. I just run but not tensed. While going to movies and parties i will be there earlier and will wait for others which i usually hate. If i am too late to reach a place i feel guilty for making other wait which in general never happens. When i am late i will explain people the cause an off course i will inform them forehand that i will be late by few minutes.

I always make sure i'm always on time or a little early sometimes. I don't like being late in school or in meetings. I try to make sure I wake up an hour before I believe so I would have amper time to get ready and also eat. It takes me a while to dress up coz' sometimes I can't decide right away what to wear ;) But of course, I'm not perfect either and i'm also late sometimes, but it's very seldom.

puntuality is important to make things happen.other wise people around u get irritATED AND THINGS DON'T GO AS IN Schedule.i am 70% puntual that means not always..and that 30% of times i am late i see people around me upset.this 30%of times are mostly informal occasions and still people get irritated.so i guess its always importat to be on time.
