I am almost annoyingly punctual. I don’t like to be late for anything. Not if it can’t be helped. If I have to be somewhere at 8 o’clock, I’m up at 5:30 and out the door at 7:00. That way, if there’s traffic or an accident or I trip and fall…I won’t run the risk of being late. I was like that when I was in school, too. Not one single tardy or unexcused absence from kindergarten all the way to when I graduated from college. I understand that some people have a difficult time getting up in the morning or getting themselves motivated to go somewhere, but damn it, suck it up. Invest in an alarm clock. Hell, buy two. I have two alarm clocks; one digital, one analog. The analog clock makes a noise about 5:45, letting me know I have 15 minutes to go, and my digital clock goes off at 6 a.m. That way, I’m assured of not waking up late.
Are you equally as prompt? Do you get irritated at people who say they’ll meet you at such and such time, and then show up an hour late?
