You late fucks are twats!
lateness really irks me. rubbish trait
Not buying this 'ooo we've got a baby, of COURSE we're 4 hours late!' schtick either.
you can be five minutes late just in case your baby cacked itself just before you leave the house but that is it (and you should really have factored that in but I'm in forgiving mood).
a few years back a notorious lateo turned up over two hours late. His excuse? Ghandi had come on the telly (the film not the man ejaculating).
to football at the park (arrived just as we were leaving). His excuse? Decided to have a bath first.
Not entirely sure how it happens (apart from for early things when it's just I can't be bothered to get up). I guess I'm just optimistic about how long things take?
"I've got to go home, get something to eat, get washed, iron some clothes and get ready. I'll pick you up in a taxi in, ooh, half an hour."
I have done this with some lateo fucks. Say 7.45 if you want an 8.30 meet, etc
Your ilk have turned me into a liar.
See you at 9.
So they don't actually spend all that time waiting for me.
I am frequently very late. I think it's because I don't really care about anyone except myself.
exception for turning up to work obviously, fuck that
If I'm fucked or really don't wanto go somewhere all bets are off.
Implying that the late person's time is more valuable than yours.
Not a conscious thing, just an underlying apprehensiveness that makes you keep putting things off. And then, by the time you actually kick in to gear and get on with things, you're late.
I'm terrified of everything and I'm always early, cowering in a corner!
because it's always going to come across as a little fearful and at least half an hour late.
I was defrosting my freezer
for old times sake?
which is a concern.
and they can just shrug it off because late people are cool and don't care.
you should be in at least 5 mins before this
so that they could log in to their computer, etc, and be ready to start work at their start time. Then the union guy said that was bollocks and all that should be done on company time, so we sided with him.
for work. If I was 10 mins late each day on average, then that's like an extra week off work.
This morning I was 16 minutes late.
what time does my manager get in?
this is my start time but I tend to go in around 11
PEOPLE WHO write emails that change font and/or font size and/or formatting halfway through or even multiple times can fuck off off off off off OFF OFF off
who puts every fucking sentence in a different colour. Luckily she's off on maternity leave now until next year.
(ie her child)
But my friends all know this to be true, so are late also.
this annoys me
however - if someone's running late and they text to say `Yeah sorry running late I'll be another 20 minutes` then... that's fine. Absolutely fine.
People who don't pre-warn and then turn up late in this Mobile Phone Age... that rankles. That rankles.
My ex was one of those people who were always late. Drove me fucking spare during our brief courtship. She was even an hour late the night we arranged to meet up so she could break up with me.
...at the very least you should fucking text.
Probably just as well you're shot of her.
Wasn't one for long term (my Mum couldn't stand her for one) but I do lament not getting another year's banging out of her.
lot better now, have just grown up like
i probably text people too much information about whether im running late or whatever. i mean, it seems like a decent amount to me, but no one else on earth texts as many updates as me so it's possibly annoying. no one's complained tho. or if they have i've forgotten
alright, no need to go on about it
think it just takes me longer to do basic stuff than most people. Fuck knows how I manage to hold it together to get to work on time, but I seem to manage.
is getting places really early, having to wait ages for people to arrive, and then being annoyed like they're super late even though it's probably only like three minutes
i'm awful :3
so i can have a coffee and hot cross bun before starting. nothing worse than starting your day feeling rushed and tense.
because of the fear of either a) being the first one to arrive and having to hang about on my own or b) the only other person there on time is one of those people that is fine in a group but you have absolutely nothing to say to one-on-one
also always late to one-on-one socialising, but that's usually accidental. when meeting someone that i know is always late i factor this in and show up late so i don't have to wait for them, but then they probably do the same to me and we just end up in an endless cycle of ever-increasing lateness
I don't know what goes wrong, I always try to plan ahead and stuff I guess I'm just exceptionally rubbish with time :(
don't you know time is an illusion, man... (etc)
