Are you usually late, early or right on time?

Wicked Wahine Wicked Wahine
I was raised in a family that stressed punctuality, so we were always early & if we needed to wait once we arrived at our destination, that's what we did. Basically, there was on time or late, nothing else!

So, are you usually early, late or right on time?

I do all 3, however, I do prefer to be on time. I hate to wait when being early. I like to get on w/ things. and when I'm late, it really doesn't seem to matter cuz "it's" not even ready yet.

When going places with my husband we are right on time. Growing up my family was early for everything. So even though now we are always right on time, it feels late. If I am by myself I tend to be just a bit early.

I'm always a few minutes early. Growing up, my mom was late for EVERYTHING and it drove me crazy. We would have to lie and change the times. For instance, there was a wedding that started at 2, so we told her it was at 1. We made it just on time.

I'm all over the place. Sometimes I'm early, sometimes I'm late. I can't seem to get a handle on how long it's gonna take me to get ready .

God I am always late, as are my parents. I was raised with some bad habits, it's almost like..the more I am aware of my time limit the later I will ultimately arrive. If I have to be there by six I may end up there at six thirty. I don't know why that happens.

I disagree here... you are either early or late. 'On Time' means early, as whatever exact agreed upon time is only a millisecond.

I feel that being early is both responsible and respectful. I am only for anything when my wife is also going. She drives me nuts with that. I actually lie about the time when we are doing things. If we need to be somewhere at 4, I will tell her 3:30. In her defense, she is a very busy women, but its still frustrating.

This is actually an old trick I have been using with bands for years. I tell different people different times, so that everyone can be on time.

I'm usually right on time. I like to be early but that doesn't always work out that way.

I'm usually a few minutes early, unless bad traffic congestion messes up my drive to the destination.

I try to be early, though I have a hard time in the morning getting to work early. I am lucky enough just to get there on time. 4am comes early.

I totally agree with Edeneve. I'm not fond of being early or late. That doesn't mean that it doesn't happen but I don't like that it has to happen sometimes.

I am early to right on time. I always leave time for traffic or other unforeseen occurrences, so I might be early, but almost never late. If I'm late, it is from being stuck in traffic because of an accident.

We are always early/on time. We have three kids and while I know a lot of people use their kids as an excuse, if you know you're going somewhere, you make sure they're ready ahead of time. I hate being late. It's disrespectful and can be a real hassle for everyone involved.

I wish I could say the matter of punctuality for us was simple. Our arrival time is seemingly determined by the event and our schedule. The first hurdle for us is whether the event is on a weekday or weekend. The next obstacle with scheduling is who is going. It's a lot more difficult getting the three of us out the door than if it is just one. We also all seem to have different clocks, which can be challenging. Lastly, I'd like to admit that the event will at times dictate punctuality. If I'm meeting my attorney, I am damn well on time. If we are visiting some of my wife's relatives, I am likely not as swift as I could be. If we are invited to a party, I usually like to arrive a half hour to an hour late. I don’t like being early. Being early means lots of small talk and chit-chat.

If my household was simply a matter of Feng Shui, existing harmoniously with all that surrounds us, we might do better with our scheduling. If we were a meticulously kept fine well oiled machine, we might have a chance. Alas, we are none of those things. You might know us better as Mrs. Yin and Mr. Yang. But, we are still happily married after all these years. It seems to work for us.

I usually am adamant about being right on time. That did however, burn me once.
I had made an appointment to see and potentially agree to lease a room in a house that was like a german Wohngemeinschaft. I got there early and so sat in my car and waited for just before the agreed time to walk up to the door. As I was walking up the stairs of the porch, someone came out and I asked if they were the landlord. It was, and I introduced myself. The first thing out of the landlord's mouth was "too late, I just rented the room".
WTF!?!

My mom always had all four of us kids ready & the one person who was always scrambling at the last minute was my father! She would be so angry that he couldn't be bothered to get it together while she had 5 people ready!

@ Mr. John: good point you bring up about the situation affecting your punctuality! I agree about the parties; sometimes it does not pay to be early or even right on time! Congrats on being married a long time & making it work, despite any differences!

It depends on who you are going to see! I am never late to an appointment, interview, work, ect. However, if I am going somewhere where late is more "acceptable" I prefer to be there later. I kinda like to make an entrance...haha

If it is just me depending on me? I will be where I need to be at least fifteen minutes before the expected time.

If I have to depend on other people... well.... then I seem to be always late. I hate having to depend on other people to drive.

When friends and family are constantly late, and I am stuck waiting and waiting and waiting every single time we meet up, I begin to feel like they think my time is not as valuable as theirs. I've been known after fifteen minutes of waiting for some people, to actually get up and go do something else. I actually calculated it, that I had spent over twenty-three hours waiting for a friend over a four month period. Enough was enough! And exactly how much patience should a person have? And I really hate when people constantly use their kids as an excuse for being late.
