    Unless it’s due to circumstances beyond my control, I’m early or on time, always.

    It’s a pet hate of mine if people keep me waiting. My ex in-laws were notorious for it and I ended up telling them to be an hour early, just so they arrived nearly on my time.

    How about you?

    Absolutely a pet hate. If you have things to do and you know you're meeting up with people, or picking someone up, or being picked up, sort it out and been on time. Rude to keep people waiting

    I try to be on time as I think it’s good manners, sadly the kids don’t always make that possible.

    I'm always early for appointments but I have to admit to being a bit lazy in meeting family/friends on time

    Don't like keeping others waiting and i don't like hanging around for others.

    Former drinking buddy was notorious for being up to half hour late. Would never ever be on time. Was a running joke that he would be late for his own funeral. Really did my head in waiting. No prob with few minutes late but he did take the piss.

    I'm always at least 15 minutes late. I don't have to be, but people should always wait for me.

    Always early or on time to meet people. If I'm meeting people with Mrs W then she can occasuonally hold us up usually resulting in a row in transit to meet said people as she doesn't seem to think it's a big deal.

    Religiously 5 to 10 mins late for work.

    5 minutes early is always my aim, any longer and depending on what I'm doing, my anxiety kicks in :laugh: very rarely late and it pisses me off when people are. Unless of course it is out of their control

    I’m an arsehole in every day life, but getting somewhere on time is never something I accomplish - hence arsehole.

    I get panicked if I think I'm going to be late so always set off earlier. If someone is late meeting me it makes me dead angry.

    Not that angry but when I was younger I used to pull my willy dead hard if I didn't get my own way. Then my mum would say ok if you stop doing that you can have some crisps or something.

    One of my previous jobs was a bus driver. Since moving on, I've found myself totally anal about being on time!

    I'm always 10/15 minutes early for hospital/doctors appointments and 10 minutes before a bus is due to arrive, i hate people who are late it's inconsiderate and rude unless there's a good reason and not bullsh*t.
