    Rather Early Than Late

    I just can't stand being late. I don't mind so much when other people are late, but when I am late I go absolutely insane. Therefore, I am the type of person who always arrives half an hour early, rather than 5 minutes late.

    Late Is Not An Option!!!

    When I commit to be somewhere at a certain time, I am going to be there and usually 15 minutes early. If I am meeting with someone and they are late I give them 15 minutes then I leave! When others make me late I get frustrated and irritable.

    I hate being late especially

    when I am made to be late at the hands of another. If you agreed to keep a schedule with someone then do so. if you agreed to it with me, then you damn well better!

    My Time Is Important ... As Is Yours

    When i set a time to me ... i am there ready to start on time. Barring freeway accidents, tie-ups, etc. Time is important. If you make a decision to meet with someone a certain time ... ... then you need to be there. Unlike the old cliche ... 'It's fashionable to be late."...

    "i Hate Being Late"

    I hate being late as being reliable is my motto. I had a situation once where the bus was always running late - it really pissed me off! the trouble was - if I caught the earlier bus - I'd have nearly an hour to kill before starting work. The bus service was so lousy I hated...

    I hate friends or business members make late

    So Disrespectful

    I think it is very disrespectful when people are extremely late. I mean if you are like 10-15 minutes that's cool but when you are later then that and have no good reason or call...that's not cool. I try myself to be punctual and arrive at the time I'm suppose but sometimes...

    Time Is Lifetime

    I have a couple of friends who regularly freak me out. I'm a very punctual person and I'll always make sure to be just in time, rather a bit early (but not too much, because that's just as much of a waste of time. It just happens as I make sure that in case of unforeseeable...

    Can't stand when you're waiting on someone

    and they're late. "I'll be there in 5" Yet, there you are, 40 minutes later ... And you don't even have a bloody valid reason... HATE IT.
