Cancel Or Always Late

This a big pet peeve of mine!!  Canceling at the last minute.  Geez....Did the person at the last minute find something better to do??  Aren't you important enough??  ARGGGGG

What's even worse....They are always late for any and everything.  If you say:  Dinner at 7PM....You had better be there at or before 7PM.   Where Ms. Manners anyway??

My husband's daughter will often make plans with us to visit us and arrive at a certain time. She is often late...Not by minutes, but by hours. 

The last time she was late by 1 1/2 hours.  My husband called her and canceled her visit.  He told her that if she couldn't be here around the specified time...We needed to reschedule her visit.

Another time, we had plans on meeting her at a restaurant for dinner at a specific time.  Reservations had been made.  We waited for over a 1/2 hour and called her cell.  She never responded.  We went ahead and ordered our food, ate and was paying the bill, when she arrived. 

Hubby told her that she was late and we had already eaten.  She was ticked at us, as we walked out of the restaurant, leaving her standing there.

I guess the saying, "better late, than never" doesn't apply to having and using good manners.

If she lives close and could have made it in no time, then yeah, you have a point. But with all honesty if she like had to shreck a whole distance to see you guys then maybe i feal for her especially if she doesnt know the address of the place etc.<br />

However, some people are really bad at their time keeping and naturally lack it.
