There are two kinds of people – those who are always late and those who are never late. I fall in the latter category and hate nothing more than being late. I will allow for traffic and parking problems and invariably arrive early for my appointments but that is fine; I will read my book or happily amuse myself on my phone. Sometimes it is fashionable to be late, for example to a party, or a bride for her wedding but that falls in a completely different category. Try being late for a concert or show and you may find yourself out in the cold until interval. My husband is my nemesis as he is always late. It can be very frustrating when we are going out together because I will stress until he is ready. Isn’t it meant to be the female who keeps the man waiting????
It is often said better late than never, but in my eyes never late is better.
“Don’t you hate it when people are late to work? And they always have the worst excuses. Oh, I’m sorry I’m late, traffic. Traffic huh? How do you think I got here; helicoptered in!?”
