    Early Everywhere

    I sometimes annoy people, because I am early everywhere. But what can I say?  I was raised in a household that believed that less than 10 minutes early is the same as being late.  Of course I'm gonna be early places!

    Never Late

    Well 99% never late. In fact I am convinced I will be early to my own funeral. I will be ten minutes early and sit and wait rather than on time or late. I am just like my mother on that one.

    Always

    I can not stand being late to anything. I will always arrive well before I have to. I leave plenty of time for traffic and for getting lost. If I am ever late it feels like such a let down. Or if I arrive just in time, I am so flustered and stressed that I spend the entire...

    Too Nervous To Wait

    I'm not sure if I can say I'm really punctual... maybe just nervous... because it was always like that: -School starts at 8am - I took the bus half past 6, got out the bus at 7, and went for a walk around school for an hour and could relax - won't be late for sure, then finally...

    On The Dot

    Perhaps it was the military training. Or perhaps, like Lady Gaga, I was just born this way. LOL But to me the greatest virtue is punctuality. I'm always on time. Always! I have never been late. No one has ever waited for me. No matter what the occasion, no matter how...

    Not!

    I'm ALWAYS LATE, ALWAYS. When I go out with my friends: IM LATE, when I used to go to school I WAS ALWAYS LATE! Knowing myself I'd probably be late at my own funeral! = /

    On Time?

    Does it matter if we are punctual?  Here is what it does for me: it communicates to others that I value them, that their time is important therefore I will not waste one moment of it.  Being punctual is a stress reducer, if you plan ahead and allow plenty of...

    My Wife And I Are Different

    I have been married for 32 years. If my wife and I are going somewhere together and we have to be there at a certain time, I can count on either just making it or being late. I always want to leave early so I arrive early. My wife runs on a different time schedule. Time is...

    Hate to Be Late

    The worst is when i go to the cinema or something like that. I always have to be there like at least 15 minutes before the ads start. I can't stand people who say "the movie starts at 8:00 so the ads go till 8:20 and then I'll come". Or if I go to a concert. I always...

    Be On Time

    Growing up my clock was always 15 minutes ahead of time because I knew if i showed up late my father would be disappointed. We were raised in a home that was very punctual and if anyone fell short of expectations we heard about it. Because I grew up in this environment I am very...
