a friend of ours, when he had to leave a social affair and his wife was unable to pull herself away -- put her over his shoulder and asked someone to get the doors for him as he left with her.
she continued her conversation all the way out.
Leave without them, it is as simple as that.
Always tell them a time needed to be somewhere at least 30 minutes before the real time. In our house we are always early.
i try to manage, but when i can't i just ignore..
I don't like this trait in people. To me it's like saying that my time isn't valuable which it is, just not to them. Sometimes, there is nothing you can do about a person like this cause they obviously don't care about your feelings at all
Set their clock an hour ahead of the actual time.
I'm always up at least two/three hours before I need to be somewhere.
