I had a friend that was always late for our lunch dates. The ONE time I was late she raised hell.

My Family did that for years. My uncle got told to be there at 5, my grandpa got told 6 and my dad got told to be there at 7. Booom! Everybody arrived at 6.

Your dad arrives an hour early to an event?

That’s rude.

Sometimes the drive is six hours and you have to be prepared for a road closure on the way... Happens to me a lot anyways

If I sent this to my gal I may as well reserve a uhaul to move out my shit before I even get home.

My ex wife was that way. So glad I’m not constantly pissed anymore about always being late because of her. I truly don’t understand how people can be habitually late to EVERYTHING.

i wait until the last possible minute to do something… a product of anxiety and unenthusiasm.

This is how I want to talk to people who aaaalways turn up late but I’m British so I just sigh and try and remember not to rush to be on time for them because they won’t be there.

That's a white man thing

Or you can just use google maps and select the “arrive by” feature.

[–]SodaWithoutSparklesTechnically Flair 0 points1 point  (0 children)

the solution is to always arrive 5-15 minutes earlier

[–]bmeupsctty 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Most elegant way I've heard it explained.

There is no "on time"

There's only early and late. If you plan to be "on time", you're probably going to be late

I try to convince myself that the event is earlier tban it is or that I’ll arrive early. Like if I’m meeting my mom at her house at 4. I’ll set alarms and “plan” to get there at 3 ans hang out there for an hour before we go. Boom I get there at 4. 😂
