    I Hate Being Late For Appointments

    I Was Late Today.

    I nearly cried. Two minutes. My heart was racing and I was sure that'd be grounds to be fired. I know it's not. But in the moment I really freak out. I've forgotten very important things at home because I just had to leave early enough to get to work. I get this horrible guilty...

    Oh, No!!!

    I can't stand when others are late. So, I really hate it when I'm late too! Like yesterday, I apologized like crazy to my friend Philip for being late on Skype. I was just one minute late, but it felt like an hour late to me! :-( I got lost! I was so into...

    10 Minutes

    Among other things, my dad was obsessive about time.  He'd get us anywhere waaaay early, especially if it was the first time we were going to that place.  He'd also start to freak if the people we were meeting were a minute late...by HIS watch.  Which was usually set at least...

    Drives My Insane

    As I stated in other posts, I am married and the Father of 2 girls.  I have finally started telling them that we need to be some place 15 minutes early just so we can only be 30 minutes late.

    I Hate Being Late For the Following...

    I hate being late for work, for a date, for an appointment, or my period.  They can all ruin my day but being late for my period really would make me cry right now seeing as I lost my birth control pills.
