If he says I'll be an hour, does that mean three hours? What does punctuality mean, does he know?

Mine knows not to be late and so do my boys. Time is money my dad always says. Besides its very rude to be late.

These replies seem so odd to me.. I know a number of men who just smile stupidly when challenged by family for being late. Hmmm perhaps it is only "social" and perhaps its a Brit thing!

Considering that I am a man, if I say that I will be there in an hour, then I'll be there in an hour. And if for some reason I will be late, then I would at least give the person a call, and let them know that I am on the way, and approximately how long it will take to get there. On the other hand, my wife happens to be the one that makes us late for something.

You may think that I'm bias but I think it should be for women. Some women says that she'll be done fixing herself at a particular time when in fact it is not usually followed. But of course not all women are like that. And not all men are like that too. It depends on the person if he/she values punctuality but from my observation, since a lot of business persons are men, majority who value punctuality are men. Because some womens have problems when we talk about fixing themselves.

I think this problem varies between people and not so much between the genders. I'm sure there are a lot of men out there who aren't on time, but I have to say that I know my fair share of women who have the same problem, and I know a lot of men who are too punctual for their own good.

i honestly dont think this is a gender issue. I have a friend who operates on her own time scale and i have heard others say it too. Some men also seem to work in their own time dimension and it really annoys me . For me punctuality is important and is testerment to how a person feels about you if they cant be bothered to be on time then it speaks volumes. blessed be

Yes I think I am convinced. Time is genderless!! Punctuality is all about respect for others and prioritising commitments. Both sexes can be crap at it lol

Coffeemate is the most punctual male I know. He is always on time for meetings. He puts loads of pressure on all of us to be on time when we are invited to someone's house or party. Does he finish his meetings on time. Yes. When he has a comitted next meeting. But today, I was waiting for over an hour in the library while he was finishing a work meeting that went overtime! LOL. When it comes to me - he knows he can sometimes take me for granted. But still... BRRRRRRRRRRR Grrrrrrr. Meow. Cheers!

I think that it's lovely that you are so understanding because you know he's usually totally reliable. Power to you both.

Some people intend to do that sometimes. However long I say I'll take, I usually stick to that.
