Are they auditionining for some kind of idiot prize?
NOW HURRY UP YOU CUNT
People who arrive late are, without doubt, the biggest cunts on this planet.
'Oh, I was fashionably late LOL!'
Do one. We arranged to meet at a time for a reason, how about we try and stick to it, HUH? Fuckers.
Being early = the new 'fashionably late'. And it gives me time to sit down with the 'paper and relax.
People who arrive more than 5 minutes after the desired meeting time are much bigger losers than those who arrive 5 minutes before it though.
it just seemed like you were getting mad at anyone who wasn't early.
i'm on time - have been late once or twice, but it's always been beyond my control. if i'm on time though and someone is late to meet me, i don't get mad at them. if they say "been waiting long?" i'll say "not really".
had to get that in there
I dig people who are early, I dig people on time. I dig people who text me to say 'Soz, bus crash, in ravine, LOL!' and turn up five minutes late. I don't dig no-one else.
but it's mainly over-compensating on journey times
I don't care if its your 'thing'. Don't do it please. Especially if its raining.
i can't remember the last time anyone said to me "ah, i'm fashionably late" when they've been late. must have been years ago
but I've got the decency to feel guitly about it.
but I woefully under-estimate the time it'll take me to show up.
this is me. I'm one of those idiots.
Do i get the prize??
unless, they don't want to be any later, in which case they will not wait?
if you are 30 seconds or more late, she'll be there, tapping her toes and frowning. If you're n time or slightly early, she'll be 40-45 minutes 'late'.
This only applies for dates obv, otherwise yeah, they're always late.
Now can i have 1st prize 'please'?! >:(
When I went for an interview with Waitrose I arrived 5 minutes early. The woman interviewing me arrived 5 minutes late, walked up to the signing in book and said 'you should have been here at 9.50, not 9.55'. I'd never been told I even had to arrive 5 minutes early! Halfway through the interview I told the interviewee to go fuck herself. Pwned by a minor!
I'd nipped away from my desk knowing no-one would turn-up before half-three and barely likely anyone would turn up then.
Came back at 15:33 for this woman to tell me she'd been waiting 8 minutes for her 3:30 appointment. And I know it's a fairly petty thing to get pissed off about but 5 of those minutes were her fault and not mine.
Or perhaps something less extreme.
who are really fussy about the precise time and place that we have to meet, so I have to get there on time and then stand in that exact spot until they arrive, or they whinge. The world is not going to end if it takes you longer than 5 seconds to find the person you're meeting.
I wish more people would be
people are SOOOOO slack with their timekeeping here
I can't remember the last time I arranged to meet somebody and didn't receive the 'I'm running a bit late' sms where +15 minutes actually means +30 minutes
the internet or my rabbit distract me. i just find it really hard to leave my bed, let alone the house.
the bus was late is always my excuse
