    I was at my dr's app't yesterday and I was chatting with an older lady in the waiting room while waiting. She asked what time my app't was and was surprised that I was 20 minutes early. She said, "I'm always running late and never can seem to be where I need to be on time".

    So, my question is... are you always fashionably late? or do you like to get there and be ready, free of the stress of running behind?:happydance

    i'm usually right on time... or maybe 5min early. rarely am i anywhere super early because usually i have kids in tow and i'd much rather have less waiting around time wherever it may be i'm heading. if i'm by myself, i'm usually early-ish - 10-15min.

    mostly right on time or a few minutes late, and I hate that, but it is what it is right now in my life!

    I'm usually early or just on time if I can plan it that way. I hate being late!

    I try to be right on time or a few minutes early. Drs appointments are hard, I have discovered, because sometimes, you can luck out by getting there early and get right in and out, and then there are times when you can arrive early/on time and still wait for what seems like hours. I don't like to be late though!

    I should preface this by saying that I don't like being late. It's not for lack of organization...I just do not have an internal clock at all, so time tends to get away from me. So, it's this basically...

    I hate being late...but for me it depends on wether I'm bringing Lina. If she's ready in time, if I made sure everything was ready to go early. But my mom says I'm always late since we have Lina...she adds up 15 mins to the time we're supposed to meet up! Thanx mom...haha

    I'm usually 5-10 min. early, right on time, or *possibly* 5 min. late... but rarely. I like to be on time, hate to keep people waiting. :flirty

    Cutting it very fine. Or just late. Almost always, people are shocked to see me at the school gates if I'm there when everyone else is :). I'd blame it on getting the kids rounded up, but I'm just as bad on my own, I'm really rubbish at managing my time and also at estimating how long things take.

    I used to be rather late. And unfortunately I still am sometimes. Especially if it's just me... If I'm with DG, we are always early or right on time. He can't be late if he tries..so we balance each other out. Like Laura, I don't *like* to be late..somehow it just happens.

    Yes, this. I stress my DH out if we are running late. He purposesly sets our alarm clock ahead just for me.

    Tardiness is a huge pet peeve of mine. Alas, DD and DH will not travel by themselves in a separate vehicle when we need to be somewhere! :giggle If it's just DD and me, we are either early (ideal) or on time. If DH is involved (or worse yet SS), we will be at least 15 minutes late (if not more).

    To my mother, when she tells you to come at noon, she means the food will be ready at noon, so she really expects you to be there between 11:30-11:45. To my mother-in-law, when she tells you to come at noon, she means that noon is the first time that popped into her head while she was talking with you and food will be ready anytime between then and 2 or 2:30, but realistically, sometime between 1 and 2. This has a lot to do with why I'm always early and DH always late.

    I seem to get places too early or late, never on time!
