This has bothered me for the longest time and I guess today I'm just in a venting mood. I HATE it when people are late. HATE HATE HATE it!! It drives me SO crazy. I would rather not go than be late. Even if its to something that doesn't matter if you're on time, like a social thing a someones house. Sorry if this offends you. I just don't understand how someone can be late to absolutely EVERYTHING!
My bosses both live less than 5 minutes away from work. Yet they can't seem to make it here before 9:30. They are up WAY before me and they don't have a baby to get ready either. It is rare when they arrive at work before me. I get here at 9. I'm not super early, but I'm not late either. When he makes an appointment for 3:00, he leaves the store at 3:00. Even if he isn't doing anything else to prevent him from going sooner. What does that say to the customer? I would feel like I'm not important enough for him to make an effort to get there on time. It is so stupid.
After about 10 minutes of waiting, I give up and think you aren't coming. I have better things to do than wait around for your lazy butt to show up at my door. Its one thing when its because something happened last minute, like a poopy diaper or something like that. But when you're late because you didn't feel like moving yet, that's just lazy.
I hate waiting around for people so I wouldn't want anyone to wait around for me.
