I am time concious... i hate being late that i usually arrive like 30 minutes eary for an appointment... especially if it has something to do with my job... i don't like people who are always late... well if i am meeting someone and he/she is late for 15 or 30 minutes... i would usually leave... Being on time or early for appointments is one of my best qualities... and i am proud of it...

I am quite time concious but it depends who I'm meeting. If the person I'm meeting is always late, I would not arrive on time so that I can save waiting time.

I can't stand being late to anything. I'm usually always there earlier than I'm supposed to be. My mom is usually late to everything. LOL My dad is always early too so I must take after him.

Hello there. I am ashamed to say that i have very poor time management skills. I am often late for my appointments and outings due to my poor time management skills and I am trying to improve on that. When I was younger, I used to be punctual for all my appointments. However, due to the fact that my friends are often late for our outings, I started behaving like them as I do not like to wait for them. =P

I am puntual in time keeping and never turn late only under exceptional circumstance.I always see that i start up early so that i can reach my destination early.This time punctuality is one good habit which i possess from my childhood.

Hello subha12, yes I am time conscious specially when I have a schedule or appointment to meet someone. I always like to be on time and ahead of schedule. I make it a point to prepare early so I won't be late for a meeting considering thats the road traffic here in our country. I think it says a lot of things about you if your always on time. Its a good habit and people would always praise you for it. :-)

I am time conscious and I believe in time management. I don't like people who don't care about how worth time is. I don't settle for latecomers because I am not. If you were waiting for somebody that long, would time not be wasted?

I am usually really early for things. I am not late for anything unless it's out of my control. Several of our friends are always late and my sister (although she won't admit it!) tends to turn up late for things. I hate being late and I hate other people being late. I don't mind a few minutes but we have friends who say they will meet us at one time but don't turn up until an hour or more later! If I have a choice, I will always be early, even if it means waiting for ages or getting up two hours earlier than necessary.

Wow, you are really ontime and precise person. Even if you have to wait for two hours earlier ? hmm..it's a solution for my problems being not ontime though. Two thumbs for you too !

I think a big reason for the way I am is always having had to rely on the public transport around here. It's the worst in the country so you have to go early in case they turn up early and have to be prepared to wait around for a long time because 2 or 3 buses could go the opposite way while you're waiting!

Hi I used to be terrible but have had to get better as life has got busier. Now I have to be on time for 3 different jobs, and all are important so I always make an extra special effort. I have now started keeping a diary of appointments and allow enough time to get round to different things. As of September things get even busier so my time management skills are going to have to be spot on. I have been proud of myself lately as I have finally found the nack of not only turning up for things without being late but I am now often early. It now drives me mad when others are late, and I now know what it felt like for others when I was constantly late. :)

I value my time very much as I respect other people's time also. So I always make it a point to be on time for every appointment or meeting I have. I just hate when someone in a group comes late to appointment unless he has valid reasons for being late. Although some of my colleagues tell me to relax sometimes, i guess it's already in my system to be on time always since I respect people and I don't want to waste their time waiting for me. Some people might disagree and might tell me to loosen up, but being punctual is one of the things that I value too much. Have a great day!

Hi buddy, if you are punctual in your life so do i. Believe me i am the same kind of person as you are and i am also praised for the same. Time in eveyone's life is important however most of us in our youth do not utilize his/her time as per their words "We do not have anything to do, i am getting bored in my life" but they don't think how to utilize the time and make a lot out of it. Once again i am really happy with my habbit provided by Almighty Allah that i utilize time very well.

I envy you for being so punctual. Myself on the other hand is the complete opposite. Family and friends now give me an earlier time in the hope that we will all arrive at the same time. For most of the year I managed to get my daughter to school on time, only once or twice early, and only late to pick her up once. I aim to improve this record greatly this year and take comfort in the fact my daughter was never once the last kid to school. I know it is terrible to be a late person as it is so rude to keep others waiting for you. Unfortunately time on the clock means little to me!

I am always earlier than is neccessary. I don't like waiting for anyone so I don't like to keep anyone waiting for me. I think if a person can't respect me enough to make the effort to be on time, I don't want to be their friend. I have a sister that is always late, no matter what. If we are having dinner at someones house we always wait for her before we start. Sometimes she is two hours late and the dinner isn't the same when it is freshly cooked. If the dinner is at my house, we don't wait because I won't let that happen. I am insistant on not waiting. But then my family gets mad at me for not wanting to wait for her. So I just don't make a big family dinner anymore.
