Stuck in traffic! There was a wreck on the freeway....

<p>
This amazing ability I have to utterly and completely procrastinate in everything I do, it's borderline a talent really...</p>

<p>
I had two of my cats who were sick to take to the vets. The sneaky, nervous cat, cappuccino who hides all the time or runs off all the time if anyone is within yards of her had been staying out for days. Managed to lock her in all night after two cancelled appts for unsuccessful attempts to get her. After an hour of trying to catch her and finally whispering a plan, between body language and actions I managed to get her in her cage. I was so stressed out I nearly had an accident en route, not helped by her loud meowing. Yes I arrived late. The two cats were also quaking over the near miss accident, my passengers and I too. Gee what a nightmare she is!</p>

<p>
Being on Internet!!</p>

<p>
I left late.</p>

<p>
It was due to a fifth.. errr.. umm, i'd like to TAKE the fifth, on that.</p>

Late not by my watch maybe theirs but isn't that a fashion statement.

<p>
ZZZZZZ..........................</p>

<p>
My metrocard was malfunctioning and then I couldn't find the caf&eacute; where I was supposed to meet the person.</p>

<p>
I can't remember the last time I was late. But in the past I've been late because of the buses, something you can't help sometimes because they tend to be unreliable.</p>

<p>
To "be late" Reflects POORLY 'on you'. It TELLS the other person YOU do not 'Respect' THEM or THEIR FEELINGS.</p>

<p>
LATE?!??!!!! Never been late for anything. I am the weirdo that will be early to my own funeral lol.</p>

<p>
I am ex military an I am never late, it shows a weakness in not being organised and a disrespect to the other person.</p>

<p>
The reason I was late for my Doctor appointment was because when I got to the Freeway interchange, I decided to head north instead to Lake Superior instead of South to the Doctor! Played hookie from the Doc!</p>

<p>
Being raised military,&nbsp; you are taught to be 15 min early.&nbsp; In the nursing field,&nbsp; you arrive 30 minutes b4 shift.&nbsp; I am not late...wicked anal about it!</p>

<p>
When setting appts. with customers I sort of play the Phone and Electric Company protocol. (Not as bad though).&nbsp; I usually give a 30minute range between 1 and 1:30.&nbsp; This way, if I get a call or delayed, Im still on time.</p>

I was watching Barry Soetoro giving a speech on his health care and I was counting the lies and lost track of time.</p>

<p>

<p>
&nbsp;My car was Totaled about 3 hrs before and I was still dealing with the aftermath.</p>

<p>

I was late for my last appointment because my dog ate my homework.</p>

I lost track of time...on the web...

<strong>the phone rang just as my daughter honked her car horn pulled into my driveway to bring me to my appointment.&nbsp; like a nitwit, i answered the phone.&nbsp; it was a stupid bill collector.&nbsp; but i wasn't't too upset because i finally had the money to pay a large medical bill.&nbsp; i started to tell him to call me back because i was running out the door to an appointment.&nbsp; he responded, "<em>i just bet you are!".&nbsp; </em>that really pi$$ed me off.&nbsp; so i yelled at him.&nbsp; i told him i had the money for him, but because he was such an a$$hole, i was going to take that money and pay off everybody <em>but him</em>, and he was now on the bottom of the long list of everybody i owed.&nbsp; he was quiet, then apologized, but i told him where to stick it, and hung up.&nbsp; as i went out to my daughter's car, i had a smug smile on my face.&nbsp; i did exactly as i told that jerk i would.&nbsp; </strong></p>
<p>
<strong>i was only 5 minutes late for my appointment.</strong></p>

<p>
i had to change my wet and poopy diaper</p>

<p>
My last appointment was with my doctor. I usually have to wait at least 30 minutes past my appointment time even to be taken to an exam room. Then I wait 20 to30 more minutes until he appears. I was working and someone needed my assistance so I did not leave the office until just after my appointment time. I still had to wait the usual amount of time.</p>

<p>
Was answering this Question :)</p>

<p>
I was watching a Sarah Palin interview, and I was waiting for her to say something intelligent.</p>

<p>
I didn't want to go to it</p>

<p>
Well I think this a memory clinic, well now you know why I had an appointment .....</p>

<p>
trafic, there was an accident.</p>

The drain in the shower was blocked and the bathroom got flooded. I had to clean the bathroom, clear the drain and shower again... Once on my way my car started to misbehave, but apparently putting it into gear violently (it's a manual drive) a few times straightened things out. <br />
I ended up coming one hour late for my appointment, which was not a problem, since that one turned out to be a disaster too.

<p>
Death in the Family, and it was my mother's Dr. appointment.</p>

<p>
